2021 International Symposium on Medical Robotics
November 17-19, 2021
Marcus Nanotechnology Building, Atlanta, GA, USA
CALL FOR LATE-BREAKING RESEARCH RESULTS (POSTER PRESENTATIONS)
The 2021 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR) will be hosted on the campus of Georgia Tech from November 17-19, 2021. The symposium will begin with the workshop(s)/tutorial(s) held on November 17 and the subsequent single-track symposium presentations will be at the Marcus Nanotechnology Building at Georgia Tech from November 18-19. This symposium will feature keynotes, oral presentations, and posters. We anticipate having an in-person event for 2021 ISMR.
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.
Call for Posters
We invite researchers to present their late-breaking research results in the form of posters in the symposium. To do so, a 1-page abstract for poster presentations should be submitted. The abstract should include:
- List of authors and their affiliations, and
- Maximum 500-words abstract
All submissions will be judged based on relevance to the symposium topics, technical quality, and novelty. Authors of accepted poster proposals are expected to attend the symposium and to present their work during the poster session. Authors are required to submit their poster proposals via email to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com by Sep 10, 2021. The email subject should be “ISMR2021_Poster_(last name of first author)”.
