Please find below a CFP that should be of interest to the medical  
robotic community.
Submissions describing the development of context-aware surgical  
robots, the modeling or monitoring of surgical procedures based on  
robots' sensor information, or the usage of robots in the data capture  
or evaluation of surgical skills, are highly welcomed.


1st workshop on 'Modeling and Monitoring of Computer Assisted  
Interventions (M2CAI)'

The first workshop on 'Modeling and Monitoring of Computer Assisted
Interventions (M2CAI)' aims at establishing a forum for discussing
advanced methods for acquisition, analysis, modeling and monitoring of
surgical / interventional procedures. These methods often aim at
explicit representation, formal understanding and statistical modeling
of the interventions. This new research field promises the design of a
new generation of context-aware, dedicated and adaptive Computer
Assisted Intervention (CAI) systems and solutions.

Addressed topics include, but are not limited to:

* Automatic surgery documentation
* Context-aware operating rooms
* Context-aware surgical robots
* Modeling/Representation of surgical procedures
* Modeling for surgical simulation and training
* Modeling for surgical workflow evaluation and optimization
* Recognition of surgical steps / actions / events
* Semantic analysis of surgical interventions
* Surgical sensor networks
* Surgical skill assessment
* Surgical workflow mining
