[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] CfP IROS Workshop on Continuum and Soft Robots for Medical Interventions
We look forward to our full-day workshop on Continuum and Soft Robots for Medical Interventions on October 5, 2018 in Madrid during IEEE/RSJ IROS! We have a great set of speakers aligned and invite you to actively participate in the workshop!
We are accepting extended abstracts until July 25, 2018!
List of topics
• Continuum robots
• Soft material robots
• Actuated needles, catheters, and flexible instruments
• Modeling large and nonlinear deformation
• Follow-the-leader deployment
• Variable stiffness mechanisms
• Sensors fusion based closed-loop control
• Reconfigurable and deployable mechanisms
Poster Teasers & Poster interactive sessions:
We invite extended abstracts of 2 pages in the standard format for IEEE conference. Authors of accepted abstracts are expected to attend the workshop with 3 mins teaser presentation and to present their work as posters during the interactive session with posters prepared in advance.
