[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] IROS18 Assistive Technologies for Precision Neurosurgery: Current Successes and Future Challenges
a reminder for the forthcoming full-day workshop on the 1st October: "Assistive Technologies for Precision Neurosurgery: Current Successes and Future Challenges.", running during the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2018) in Madrid, Spain
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.
