Dear roboticists

University of Basel and ETH Zurich are organizing the first Medical Robotics Week 2020 (6 th-10th July, 2020) www.medicalroboticsweek.org<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.medicalroboticsweek.org&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=UunzdSWfSBxXjfpATORCA0hgTLqJypfsvGS4LWKVVCw&s=q7DJm3bg02du-CrhZCmO3Z3GQ0Jme3xCbRIwLDGBq8Y&e= > that will host the 7th MESROB (“New Trends in MEdical and Service ROBotics”) https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.mesrob2020.org&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=UunzdSWfSBxXjfpATORCA0hgTLqJypfsvGS4LWKVVCw&s=vY3R4-R2vL7SY2DXVT64b517Ucadpo_XIcR5_GOMHHU&e= 

Papers are 6-8 pages Springer book-format (deadline 1st February 2020): https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__ocs.springer.com_ocs_home_MESROB2020&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=UunzdSWfSBxXjfpATORCA0hgTLqJypfsvGS4LWKVVCw&s=ofJBpD-9Sb9pMDKRVvVLhY35AhAYu5Ti40V8eoZJ-SU&e= 

We’ll have theme days on SURGICAL ROBOTICS, REHABILITATION ROBOTICS, and HAPTICS in particular, but there will be many more topics on PATIENT-CENTERED ROBOTICS.


·       This will also be the first time that CYBATHLON teams will present their devices on a scientific event after the CYBATHLON 2020

·       There will be preconference workshops on automation using i)TwinCAT3, ii) nursing robotics, and iii) IMUs and optical tracking (marker-based and marker-less)

·       The IISART (the International  Industry Society in Advanced Rehabilitation Technology) will have a session on “Standards and best practices in medical robotics”

·       Proceedings will be published as a Springer book

·       We will have at least 3 travel grants up to 500$

·       Paper awards: Gold: 750€, Silver 500€, Bronze 250€ (each in 3 categories: best research paper, best application paper, best student paper)

·       Poster awards: Gold: 300€, Silver 200€, Bronze 100€

·       Lab/hospital tours

·       Gala-dinner cruise on the river Rhine with live band

·       Exhibitors from industry
