[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] IROS18 2nd Call for paper: WS10 Assistive Technologies for Precision Neurosurgery: Current Successes and Future Challenges.
I apologised for multiple emails. This is the second call for contributions for the workshop: "Assistive Technologies for Precision Neurosurgery: Current Successes and Future Challenges."
This workshop aims to survey the most promising technological breakthroughs arising from the last decades' worth of scientific and clinical innovation, to ascertain the current neurosurgical landscape and identify existing open challenges and possible ways to address them with robotics.
Invited speakers represent academic, clinical and commercial entities, which are at the forefront of neurosurgery today, covering tool sensorization, new brain models and modelling approaches, new mechanisms and new clinical applications that may improve the quality of life of patients.

****** TOPICS OF INTERESTS ******
The workshop will specifically focus on key robotic technologies within the context of neuro and skull-base surgery organised around the following key themes:
· Tool sensorization: including shape sensing, intraoperative tool and tissue tracking, Doppler imaging, Raman spectroscopy
· New mechanisms: including new hardware platforms and surgical systems for research and commercial exploitation
· New control approaches: including automatic trajectory tracking, shared control, teleoperation, etc.
· New clinical applications: including neurosurgical drug delivery, minimally invasive surgery and chronic disease management
