[robotics-worldwide] [journals] CFP: Special Issue on Medical Robotics: Advances in Training, Ergonomics, Sensing, Control and Other Areas in /Robotics/ - an open access journal by MDPI
Robotics is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Medical
Robotics: Advances in Training, Ergonomics, Sensing, Control and Other
Areas". Dr. Abhilash Pandya and Dr. Luke Reisner, both from Wayne State
University, are serving as Guest Editors for this issue.
We predict that technology-assisted medicine (and robotics in
particular) will have a significant impact on health care over the next
few decades. Robots will augment the surgeon’s senses, motor
performance, and diagnostic capability. There are some major areas of
technological improvement needed for this technology to reach its
ultimate potential, which include better automation, visualization,
tactile sensing, diagnostic sensing, human-robot interfaces, and
miniaturization, among others. This Special Issue will focus on the
latest advancements in robotic surgery and its associated leveraging areas.
The submission deadline is 30 June 2018. You may send your manuscript
now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under
consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to
send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in
advance ([hidden email]).
Since Volume 6, all the published papers will be added in Scopus. The
journal is also indexed in Web of Sciences (Thomson Reuters), as part of
the ESCI database.
Robotics is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by
readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as
indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors
and their institutes. An Article Processing Charge (APC) of CHF 350
currently applies to all accepted papers.
For further details on the submission process, please see the
instructions for authors at the journal website.
