> Workshop Overview
> ------------------
>
> The past decade has witnessed accelerated growth of medical robotics and
> computer-assisted medical technologies due to the significant practical
> utility, economic value, and diversity of applications benefiting patients,
> providers and healthcare systems. However, several challenges arise from
> the complexities engendered within the human body and the diverse sets of
> multi-disciplinary knowledge that need to be merged to create these
> system-level solutions and to successfully bring them to the market. We
> believe that there is a need for the robotics and medical device community
> to initiate a discussion on several issues that could benefit academia and
> industry in their shared pursuit of improved patient care. We therefore
> propose to initiate the first of a series of workshops at the 2014 IEEE/RSJ
> International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) in
> Chicago.
>
> Workshop Topics
> ------------------
>
> 1) Open research platforms, system interoperability and synergistic
> technical tools (e.g. programming, hardware, communication) that can
> benefit academia and industry alike for collaborative medical system
> research and development.
> 2) Virtual and physical benchmark data corpuses; benchmarking performance
> of human users; training and accreditation; safety and risk-assessment.
> 3) Translational research challenges and strategies for bringing medical
> devices from lab bench to clinical use.
