*Extended Deadline* Call for Papers
2018 International Symposium on Medical Robotics
March 1-3, 2018
Academy of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA

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.
