Paper Submissions

Initial Paper Submission

The 2020 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR) accepts full paper submissions. All papers must be written in English and submitted electronically in PDF format by December 1, 2019.

The page limit for each submission is flexible. However, the paper material (including text, figures, tables, acknowledgement, etc.) must fit into 6 pages, while there is no page limit for the bibliography/references section (n pages).

Papers exceeding the (6+n) page limit at the time of submission will be returned without review.

Authors should prepare their papers based on IEEE templates. Please use US letter.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Depending on the outcome of the review process, each accepted paper will be chosen for either an oral or a poster presentation. All accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings. All accepted AND presented papers that follow the IEEE format will be included in IEEE Xplore.

Note that a student registration fee covers only one accepted paper to be uploaded for inclusion in the symposium proceedings. A full registration fee covers up to two accepted paper uploads, provided the registrant is an author on both papers.
