[robotics-worldwide] [journals] CFP: Special issue for the Journal of Medical Robotic Research (JMRR) with focus on Continuum, compliant, cognitive, and collaborative Surgical Robots

===CFP: Special issue for the Journal of Medical Robotic Research (JMRR) with focus on Continuum, compliant, cognitive, and collaborative Surgical Robots===

We invite submissions to a special issue for the Journal of Medical Robotic Research (JMRR) with focus on Continuum, compliant, cognitive, and collaborative Surgical Robots.

New robotic technologies have led to significant advances in surgery in recent decades. Motivated to further reduce the invasiveness of robot-assisted surgery, new robotic systems are being created that enter the patient’s body via single ports or natural orifices and can reach and operate in difficult-to-access sites. However, there are still challenges to implement minimally invasive surgery with these new surgical robotic systems, such as the design, control, and sensing of surgical robots for specific clinical applications. This special issue aims to present emerging engineering-in-medicine technologies in continuum mechanism, human-robot compliant interaction, soft robotics, smart sensing, co-robotics, and artificial intelligence and their applications to robotic surgeries.

Submissions will follow the "JMRR instructions for authors" (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.worldscientific.com_page_jmrr_submission-2Dguidelines&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=51q_qJwcAAkjTCaC9Z_FwxHYMt80CDpdckHbgP7aP14&s=PTcOG0BILSZ3HfkPlgknVZ_BIzg4RFp-zkJA9SEAH4U&e= ) and should describe one or more of the following topics of interest. All the submissions will be judged based on relevance to the JMRR SI topics, technical quality, and novelty.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 Design, modeling and control of continuum surgical robotics
 Flexible robotics in surgery
 Physical human-robot compliant interaction
 Multi sensorized and data-driven robotic system in surgery
 Human-robot intelligent collaboration and shared control
 Variable stiffness robotic systems
 Tactile and haptic feedback in robotic surgery
 Machine learning and cognitive surgical robotics

[robotics-worldwide] [journals] CFP: Focused Section on Surgical Robotics for International Journal of Intelligent Robotics and Applications

Hongliang Ren
We invite submissions to a "Focused Section on Surgical Robotics" for International Journal of Intelligent Robotics and Applications, with  Paper submission due on: 31 December 2018.

International Journal of Intelligent Robotics and Applications (Indexed by ESCI) calls for this special issue aiming to articulate emerging surgical robotics and artificial intelligence technologies in terms of new actuators and sensors in surgical environments, continuum mechanism, modeling, human-robot compliant interaction, immersive haptics, soft robotics, smart sensing, co-robotics, and artificial intelligence and their applications to robotic surgeries. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

•         Intelligent surgical robotic systems

•         New actuators and sensors in surgical environments

•         Design, modeling and control of surgical robotics

•         Flexible and soft robotics in surgery

•         Physical human-robot compliant interaction

•         Multi sensorized and data-driven robotic system in surgery

•         Human-robot intelligent collaboration and shared control

•         Variable stiffness mechanisms for surgical robotics

•         Tactile and haptic feedback in robotic surgery

•         Machine learning and cognitive surgical robotics
New robotics and intelligence technologies have led to significant advances in surgery in recent decades. Motivated to further minimize the invasiveness of robot-assisted surgery, new robotic research and development are being created to enter the patient’s body via single ports or natural orifices and operate in difficult-to-access workspaces. There are still challenges to implement minimally invasive surgery with these new surgical robotic systems, such as the design, control, and sensing of surgical robots for specific clinical applications.
