Deadline for submission of contributions: April 15th, 2012 Notification of
Acceptance:  May 1st, 2012




We invite scientists and companies active in the field of robotic surgery to
submit contributions to the Workshop on Modular Surgical Robotics that will
be held at ICRA2012. Contributions are expected to discuss how surgical
robotics can be made modular by means of appropriate methods, e.g.
standards, new interfaces, software and hardware architectures, validation,
and benchmarking. The workshop topics  are in the focus of  the new European
project Eurosurge ( <http://www.eurosurge.eu/> http://www.eurosurge.eu/),
which is aimed at structuring a network of laboratories in robotic surgery
and at promoting modularity in the cooperative (open hardware) development
of robots.


The workshop will be divided into three sessions:


the first summarizing the current status of Eurosurge; the second with
presentations from experts outside the project; and the third with a
discussion expected to provide suggestions and opinions about introducing
modularity into robotic surgery.


Contributions are due on April 15th, 2012 and the acceptance decision will
be notified to the authors by May 1st.


Contributions should be of about 5000 characters, clearly indicating the
methods and the relevance to the workshop.


Authors names with affiliations and the title of the presentation must head
the paper.


Non exhaustive list of topics of interest in the surgical robotics field are
the following:


- Modularity

- Cognition

- Emerging standards

- Validation and performance assessment

- Sensor and sensory data fusion

- Image guided procedures

- Registration and geometrical measurements

- Benchmarking

- Repeatability of experiments
