Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to submit papers to the special
session entitled Shared Autonomy for Motor Augmentation in Medical
Robotic Systems in the 2019 IEEE International Conference on
Automation Science and Engineering (CASE), which will be held on August
22-26, 2019, in Vancouver, BC, Canada.  March 15, 2019 is the paper
submission deadline (extended).

Please use the code 'ypest' to submit to this special session.  For more
information, please see


Shared autonomy is a recent topic in medical robotics and includes a
wide range of technologies and techniques that share the performance
of an intervention (e.g., surgery and neurorehabilitation) between the
robotic systems and users (e.g., surgeons and therapists). The
technology is designed to partially augment the motor capabilities of
users through automation techniques and artificial intelligence. This
session is designed to collect original research on advanced and novel
automation techniques which can help to actively and adaptively
augment the motor capabilities of human users using robotics
systems for medical (surgical and rehabilitation) applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Surgical autonomy in co-manipulated and telerobotic surgery systems
• Intelligent mechatronic systems for hand-held surgical devices
• Adaptive human-machine interfacing for autonomous medical systems
• Learning-from-demonstration rehabilitation systems
• Shared autonomy for myoelectric control of upper-limb prostheses
• Adaptive control and compatible interaction for lower-limb bionic devices
• Autonomous rehabilitation robotic systems
