It is our pleasure to invite you to the 2015 Innovative Surgical Robotics Forum in London on 18 March 2015 discussing the challenges, current barriers and ways to move forward in the arena of surgical robots.

The global market for medical robotics and computer-assisted surgical (MRCAS) equipment was worth nearly $2.7 billion in 2013. The market is projected to approach $3.3 billion in 2014 and $4.6 billion by 2019 for a CAGR of 7% for the five-year period, 2014 to 2019. Surgical robots dominate the global MRCAS market accounting for more than 70%.
Robotic devices are extremely complex systems will require considerable amounts of R&D. Government support will therefore be crucial in these next 5 years.

The 2015 Innovative Surgical Robotics Forum is an event jointly organised by the Special Interest Group: Robotics and Autonomous Systems, the EU and the Centre for Robotics Research (kings-core.com), Department of Informatics, King's College London. Four EU FP7 projects (STIFF-FLOP, microRalp, CASCADE, and ReMeDi) leading the field of surgical robotics will exhibit their latest achievements. During this event, the aim is to identify market opportunities and the gaps between clinical, academic and industrial communities to establish a multidisciplinary community focused on the subject. We will facilitate the exploitation of robotics R&D by bringing together the different stakeholders and create the opportunity to form new partnerships and collaborative relationships.

We look forward to welcoming you at the 2015 Innovative Surgical Robotics Forum in London,

Prof. Kaspar Althoefer, King's College London
Dr Helge Wurdemann, King's College London
Dr Thrish Nanayakkara, King's College London
