This is the final call for papers for the 8th Hamlyn Symposium on 
Medical Robotics which is to be held on Sunday 21 and Monday 22 June 
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 June 2015. 
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
- Neurosurgery
- 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 are pleased to announce that selected papers from the Hamlyn 
Symposium will be invited to submit their work to Journal of Medical 
Robotics Research (JMRR). These papers will undergo an independent 
peer-review process. Further details about JMRR can be found via
