Second announcement and final program - International Workshop on Medical
Robots July 3rd, 2012 Milano, Italy  

============================================================================
===========================

Deadline for mandatory free registration on the website: June 15th 

Website for registration and program: http://www.iwmr.polimi.it

============================================================================
===========================

The joint working group of IEC SC 62A and ISO/TC 184/SC 2, namely, JWG9
Medical electrical equipment and systems using robotic technology (Medical
robots), will hold an International workshop at the Politecnico di Milano to
present the state of the art in medical robots, barriers to exploitation and
explore the need for standardisation in this rapidly changing area of
robotics.

============================================================================
===========================

There is considerable activity in developing new non-industrial robots for
applications where close robot-human interaction is essential in the design
and operation of the new robots to perform their intended tasks. This
includes personal care robots and medical robots. The technical
standardization work groups are the following:

 

• WG1: Vocabulary and characteristics of robots, Convenor Prof Soon-Geul
Lee, South Korea

• WG 3: Industrial robot safety, Convenor Jeff Fryman, Robotics Industries
Association, USA

• WG7: Personal care robot safety, Convenor Prof Gurvinder S Virk, CLAWAR
Association, UK, and University of Gävle, Sweden

• JWG9 Medical electrical equipment and systems using robotic technology,
Convenor Prof Gurvinder S Virk, CLAWAR Association, UK

• WG 8: Service robots, Convenor Prof Seungbin Moon, Sejong University,
South Korea

============================================================================
===========================

The aim of the workshop is to bring these activities to the attention of the
medical and related communities in Europe so that full participation of all
the stakeholders can be facilitated and future cooperation ensured. The
Workshop is organized in thematic areas covering the key international
issues regarding areas of medical robots, with talks given by experts from
all over the world.

============================================================================
===========================

 

Thematic areas: 

 

1. Robot standardization and regulation

Global robot standardization and regulation activities will be presented by
experts from Sweden, USA, Germany and Brazil

 

2. Experiences with medical robots: user and robot designer standpoints

Talks by the end user and systems’ manufacturers from USA and Switzerland.

 

3. National research in Medical robots worldwide

Reports by international experts on the worldwide picture of medical
robotics with contributions from UK, Japan, China, Italy, France, USA, South
Korea and Hungary.

============================================================================
