Surgical robotic tools and digitally enhanced operating theaters have been giving surgeons a helping hand for years. While they provide great control, precision and flexibility to the surgeons, they don't yet address the cognitive assistance needs in the operating theater. We are on the verge of a new wave of innovations of artificial intelligence powered, context-aware operating theaters. This workshop aims to highlight the potential use of surgical data science multidisciplinary approaches and teams with a focus on translation and clinical applications that will define the future technologies of the next generation operating theaters.

The featured topics of the OR 2.0 Context-Aware Operating Theaters are, but not limited to, as below:

  *   Machine vision and perception
  *   Robotics
  *   Surgical simulation and modeling
  *   Cognitive models
  *   Multi-modal data fusion and visualization
  *   Image analysis
  *   Advanced imaging
  *   Advanced display technologies
  *   Human-computer interfaces
  *   Sensors
  *   Wearable and implantable electronics and robots
  *   Visual attention models
  *   Decision support networks to enhance surgical procedural assistance
  *   Context-awareness and team communication in the operating theater
  *   Human-robot collaborative systems
  *   Surgical training and assessment

OR 2.0 will feature keynote speakers, research talks from paper submissions, a poster session, best paper/poster awards, and an open discussion forum of OR 2.0 context-aware operating theater technologies and their clinical impact. The workshop will feature clinicians, engineers and industry partners. All students and researchers interested in the future technologies that will define the next generation operating theaters, regardless of experience, are invited. Accepted papers will be published jointly with MICCAI 2019 in a Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Proceedings Volume. Best paper/posters will be awarded. This year, we will expand our board with an industrial board from various companies that work on related topics. We also introduce bench to OR award, which will be given to works that have potential to be easily translated into clinical applications. We would like to thank our sponsor Intuitive for sponsoring a total of 2000$ in prizes for best paper/poster awards.
