Overview & Topics


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. In this workshop we will focus on new surgical robots that are compliant, continuum, cognitive, and collaborative (C4 surgical robots). Integrating the emerging technologies in soft robotics, smart materials, co-robotics, and artificial intelligence has the potential to enable new C4 surgical robots. This workshop will bring together world-class researchers to present state-of-the-art research results in surgical robotics and the potential challenges for creating and implementing C4 robots for clinical applications.

============================================================


Call For Extended Abstracts/Posters: We invite extended abstracts of 2-4 pages in the standard format for IEEE ICRA conference. Submissions should describe one or more of the following topics of interest. All the submissions will be judged based on relevance to the workshop topics, technical quality, and novelty. Authors of accepted abstracts are expected to attend the workshop with a spot-light talk (~2 mins) and to present their work as posters during the interactive session with posters prepared in advance. Best poster awards will be presented after the interactive session. The extended abstracts will be included in the proceedings to be posted on the workshop website. High quality extended abstracts will be recommended to a special issue for Journal of Medical Robotic Research (JMRR).



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


- Machine learning and cognitive surgical robotics

- Physical human-robot compliant interaction

- Human-robot intelligent collaboration and shared control

- Design, modeling and control of continuum surgical robotics

- Variable stiffness robotic systems

- Tactile and haptic feedback in robotic surgery

- Flexible robotics in surgery

- Intra-operative imaging for robotic-assisted surgery

- Augmented reality in robotic surgery

- Multi-sensorized and data-driven robotic system in surgery
