Joint EU CIS and Surgical Robotics Workshop

Good news! The various CIS related projects joined forces for a united workshop. One event for all, where you should also participate! Call for the 3rd Joint Workshop on New Technologies for Computer/Robot Assisted Surgery, to be held 11-13. September 2013, Verona.

"This workshop seeks to give a clear view on the status and recent trends of abovementioned assistive surgical robotic technologies and aims to propose concrete measures to achieve a critical mass in research and innovation in this field. In fact, regardless of its popularity, the share of European technology used in clinical practice remains disproportionally small, with limited signs of improvement on the horizon. The workshop will continue the discussion started at ERF in Lyon and at ICRA in Karlsruhe and will attempt to identify the steps necessary to stimulate cooperation among the projects in robotic surgery and the best approach to take advantage of the supposed attention of Horizon2020 to innovation.
We call for contributions summarizing the state-of-the-art or introducing promising trends in robot-assisted surgery, both from scientific as clinical perspective; contributions discussing the relevance, challenges and impediments that are faced by surgical robotic and assistive technology developers when considering the introduction of their technology into the surgical theatre as well as for visionary works that provide arguments to brake with the current status-quo."
Specific topics of interest are:
  • registration, segmentation and modeling;
  • motion compensation and active guidance;
  • human-robot collaboration and shared control;
  • workflow analysis and episode segmentation;
  • machine learning and cognitive surgical robotics;
  • surgical skill assessment;
  • usability and user-acceptance;
  • surgical training;
  • standardization and regulation;
  • system integration;
  • safety and dependability;
  • synergies and clustering;
  • visionary works and roadmaps.
