[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Hamlyn Workshop - Implantable Sensors and Robotics
We cordially invite you to participate in our workshop "Implantable Sensors and Robotics" to be held on 27 June 2018 in conjunction with the Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics, London UK.
We invite contributory poster presentations on the wider field of Implantable Sensors and Robots with a focus on translational sensing and robotics.
The workshop will be comprised of a series of personal narratives from leaders in academia and industry addressing the clinical opportunities, technical requirements and regulatory challenges for translating optical imaging and sensing technologies to practical clinical use.
This workshop aims to provide a forum to bring together basic science researchers, engineers, and healthcare practitioners from a diverse range of disciplines to present the current state-of-the-art in implantable sensing and robotics. It will also present some of the major technical challenges and unmet healthcare demands that can potentially reshape the future of surgical care and functional restoration.
