*2019 International Symposium on Medical Robotics*

April 3-5, 2019

Academy of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA

*Call for Papers*

The 2019 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR) will be hosted
at the Academy of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia from April 3-5, 2019. This
symposium will feature keynote and semi-plenary talks, oral presentations,
and posters.

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 these 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.

*Symposium Paper Submission:*

Paper submissions and reviews will be handled through EasyChair (

paper formatting instructions for IEEE conference proceedings that are
available on the ISMR website.

The page limit for each submission is flexible. However, the paper material
(including text, figures, tables, acknowledgment, etc.) must fit into 6
pages, while there is no page limit for the bibliography/references section
(n pages). Papers exceeding the (6+n) page limit at the time of submission
will be returned without review. All accepted and presented papers that
follow the IEEE format will be included in IEEE Xplore. A PDF version of
this call for paper is available at
