[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Deadline approaching for 2020 ISMR International Symposium on Medical Robotics
Dear roboticists worldwide,
please consider submitting your medical robotics research results to the 2020 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR)!
ISMR will be hosted on the campus of Georgia Tech from April 22-24, 2020. The symposium will begin with the workshop(s)/tutorial(s) held on April 22 and the subsequent single-track symposium presentations will be at the Marcus Nanotechnology Building at Georgia Tech from April 22-24. This symposium will feature keynote and semi-plenary talks, oral presentations, and posters.
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 these 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.
The page limit for each submission is flexible. However, the paper material (including text, figures, tables, acknowledgement, etc.) must fit into 6 pages, while there is no page limit for the bibliography/references section (n pages). Papers exceeding the (6+n) page limit at the time of submission will be returned without review. All accepted and presented papers that follow the IEEE format will be included in IEEE Xplore.
Workshop and Tutorial Proposal Submission
Proposals are invited for half-day or full-day tutorials and workshops. Workshops should provide a forum for participants to discuss emerging and active research areas. We particularly welcome workshops that present content not typically found in the regular sessions of the symposium. Proposals should discuss how the workshop/tutorial will facilitate comprehensive discussion on the selected topic and promote the active participation of and interaction between the attendees.
Workshop and Tutorial Proposals Submission Deadline: December 15, 2019
Paper decisions notification: January 25, 2020
Camera-ready copies of the papers due: February 15, 2020
Final program published on the website: March 1, 2020
We look very much forward to your contributions!
