We are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for the 8th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics to be held on Sunday21and Monday22June 2015 at the Royal Geographical Society, London. There will be interactive and hands-on workshops/tutorials organised in conjunction with the symposium on Saturday 20 and Tuesday 23 June2015. The theme for this year's Symposium is “From Whole Body Systems to Micro Instruments”.

Topics to be addressed by the symposium include, but are not limited to:

·         Co-operative Control and Perceptual Docking

·         Clinical highlights in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, General

          Surgery,Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic and Paediatric Surgery

·         Economic and general consideration of robotic surgery

·         Emerging, multi-specialty applications of robotic technology

·         Flexible Robotics

·         Human robot interaction and ergonomics

·         Intra-operative imaging and biophotonics for robotic surgery

·         Mechatronic designs for medical robotics

·         Medical image computing and computer assisted intervention

·         Medical robotics for NOTES

·         Microbot design and applications

·         Smart Instruments

·         Surgical navigation and augmented reality systems

·         Surgical simulation, training and skills assessment

The Symposium Programme will feature an impressive line-up of leading scientists and engineers in collaborative robotics, navigation and image guidance.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and welcoming you to the 8th Hamlyn Symposium in June 2015.
