[robotics-worldwide] [journals] CFP: Special Issue on "Medical Robotics: Advances in Training, Ergonomics, Sensing, Control and Other Areas" - extended submission deadline 31 December 2018
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, from Wayne State
University, are serving as Guest Editors for this issue. We would like
to invite you to prepare a research article or a comprehensive review to
be published in this special 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 has extended to 31 December 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.
