International Symposium on Medical Robotics

2021 Fall School on Medical Robotics (Nov. 15-17, 2021)

2021 International Symposium on Medical Robotics

(Nov. 17-19, 2021)

The 2021 Fall School on Medical Robotics (FSMR) and the 2021 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR) will be hosted together for the second time on the campus of Georgia Tech from Nov. 15-19, 2021. The FSMR will run from Nov. 15-17 while the ISMR will be held from Nov. 17-19. Workshops and tutorials will be held on Nov. 17, and will be common to both FSMR and ISMR. While FSMR will feature a series of talks, workshops, and poster presentations, ISMR will feature keynotes, semi-plenary talks, and workshops in addition to oral/poster presentations of original research.  In-person event for FSMR/ISMR 2021 is still under review and the final decision has not yet been made.

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.
