 Call for Posters-ICRA 18 Workshop Supervised Autonomy in Surgical Robotics

Friday Morning 25 May, 2018

Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Australia

Workshop “Supervised Autonomy in Surgical Robotics” at ICRA18 invites
submissions of posters. As supervised autonomy of robotic surgeries has
great potential to further improve surgical outcomes, more and more
researchers are interested in the topic. The goal of this workshop is to
provide a platform to discuss existing challenges, new ideas and resources
and disseminate the latest results.


Authors should submit an extended abstract (2 pages) as a PDF in the
standard ICRA conference format, before the submission deadline specified

submit a one page PPT to the organizer, and they will have 1 minute to
 orally introduce the poster at the workshop.

Live demos or videos are highly encouraged. Please communicate with the
organizers if you need any help, for example, extra space, power or
equipment for your demo.


Topics of interest include but not limited to


   Surgical Robot Autonomy

   Motion Planning and Control

   Robotic Surgery safety/security

   Open source software for medical robotics

   Collaborative APIs

   Novel Mechanical Design and Autonomy
