2018 International Symposium on Medical Robotics
March 1-3, 2018
Academy of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA

Call for Papers

The 2018 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR) will be
hosted at the Academy of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia from March 1-3,
2018. This symposium will feature keynote and semi-plenary talks, oral
presentations, and poster presentations.

The goal of ISMR is to bring together world-class researchers to
present state-of-the-art research achievements and advances in
surgical robotics, image-guided interventions, rehabilitation and
assistive robotics, and prosthetics, as well as discuss challenges
from the clinical point of view and address industry needs. It is
envisioned that medical robots will integrate emerging technologies
including soft robotics, smart materials, ergonomics, co-robotics, and
artificial intelligence in the near future, and those topics will be
featured in the symposium.

Potential topics for the symposium submissions include, but are not
limited to, state-of-the-art research achievements and advances in
surgical robotics, rehabilitation and assistive robotics, prosthetics,
image-guided interventions, haptics, safety of robot-assisted
procedures, training of medical personnel, and discussing potential
challenges from the clinical point of view.
