Special Track on Safety and Standards in Robotic Surgery
at IAS-12 the 12th Intelligent Autonomous Systems Conference

Jeju Island, Korea on June 26 - 29, 2012

Paolo Fiorini,      University of Verona,  Italy
Joerg Raczkowsky,   Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany

Deadline for submission of paper: January 31st, 2012
Notification of Acceptance:  March 15, 2012
Final Manuscript Submission:  April 30, 2012

We invite scientists in robotic surgery to submit contributions to the Special Track at IAS-12 to 
discuss how surgical robotics can be made more modular by means of appropriate standards, to 
significantly improve patient safety and intervention breadth.
Outstanding papers among the track papers will be placed on the first priority to be published on 
"Robotics and Autonomous Systems" published by Elsevier or "Studies in Computational Intelligence 
Series" by Springer-Verlag. The books will be published under a special theme based on the track 

Paper(s) are due on January 31, 2012. Paper shall be 4 pages length and IEEE styled format. For 
paper instructions and submission, please visit the website, 
http://www.ias-12.org/sub/submission_01.asp. Please make sure include your track number at 
http://www.ias-12.org/sub/program_01.asp, before paper submission. Track papers will be submitted 
and reviewed in the same way as regular papers. The track organizer will make a final decision of 
the track papers after two rigorous peer reviews.

Topics of interest in Robotic Surgery
- Modularity
- Cognition
- Emerging standards
- Validation and performance assessment
- Sensor and sensory data fusion
- Image guided procedures
