[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Posters: 2018 International Symposium on Medical Robotics

Mahdi Tavakoli
International Symposium on Medical Robotics

March 1-3, 2018

Academy of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA


The 2018 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR) will be hosted
at the Academy of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia from March 1-3, 2018. This
symposium will feature keynote and semi-plenary talks, oral presentations,
and poster presentation. The goal of ISMR is to bring together world-class
researchers to present state-of-the-art research achievements and advances
in surgical robotics, image-guided interventions, rehabilitation and
assistive robotics, and prosthetics, as well as discuss challenges from the
clinical point of view and address industry needs. It is envisioned that
medical robots will integrate emerging technologies including soft
robotics, smart materials, ergonomics, co-robotics, and artificial
intelligence in the near future, and those topics will be featured in the
symposium. Potential topics for the symposium submissions include, but are
not limited to, state-of-the-art research achievements and advances in
surgical robotics, rehabilitation and assistive robotics, prosthetics,
image-guided interventions, haptics, safety of robot-assisted procedures,
training of medical personnel, and discussing potential challenges from the
clinical point of view.

Call for Posters

 We invite participants to present their late-breaking research results in
the form of posters in the symposium. To do so, 1-page abstract for poster
presentations should be submitted. The abstract should include:



   List of authors and their affiliations, and

   Maximum 500-words abstract

   All submissions will be judged based on relevance to the symposium
topics, technical quality, and novelty. Authors of accepted proposals are
expected to attend the symposium and to present their work during the
poster session. Authors are required to submit their poster proposals via
email to [hidden email] and [hidden email], by January 25,
2018. The email subject should be “ISMR2018_Poster_(last name of first
