*2019 International Symposium on Medical Robotics*

*Call for Workshop Proposals*

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.

*Call for workshops*

Proposals for half-day and full-day workshops are invited. Workshops will
be held on April 3, before the regular sessions of the symposium on April 4
and 5. Workshops should provide a forum for participants to discuss
emerging and active research areas. We particularly welcome workshops that
present content not typically found in the regular sessions of the
symposium. Proposals should discuss how the workshop will facilitate
comprehensive discussion on the selected topic and promote the active
participation of and interaction between the attendees. Specifically,
proposals should include the following:



Organizers (affiliations and contact information)

Objectives (max 500 words)

Topics of interest (up to 5 keywords)

List of speakers (names, affiliations and talk titles)

Structure (talks, expert panels, Q&A)

Intended audience (max 300 words)

Expected attendance

Special requests (e.g., whiteboard or poster stands)

*Workshop proposals should be sent on or before December 1, 2018, by email
