The SARAS Workshop “NEXT GENERATION INTELLIGENT SURGICAL SYSTEMS: Computer simulation meets robotics”, addressed to researchers representing SARAS’ two major fields of application: robotics and surgery, summarize the results of the project and presents the achievements obtained, including demonstrations, with the main objective of raising awareness of the project’s results (MS7).
41st Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, EMBC 2019 July 2019
The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society is pleased to announce the 41st International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference, to be held in Berlin, Germany from July 23–27, 2019.
The overarching theme is “Biomedical engineering ranging from wellness to intensive care”.
The scientific tracks will cover the standard topics of the EMBS technical committees. Beside the scientific sessions, the congress exhibition will show biomedical companies, start-ups, biomedical institutes, universities, and provide networking opportunities for engineers, clinicians, other scientists, entrepreneurs and students.
Cutting-edge research and innovation in biomedical engineering, healthcare technology and medical informatics will all be covered in this large conference.
Dexterity and perception capabilities of surgical robots may soon be enhanced by cognitive functions that can support surgeons in decision making and performance monitoring, and enhance surgical quality.

However, the basic elements of autonomy are not well understood and their mutual interaction is unexplored.
Next Generation Surgery: Seamless integration of Robotics, Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation within the operating rooms
ICRA 2019 – May 24, 2019 – Montreal, Canada
The use of surgical robots has -beyond doubt- led to advances and improvements in surgery. The next significant forward leap is expected with the introduction of intelligent systems that can operate autonomously, or semi-autonomously in cooperation with the surgeons. In this quest of intelligence, growing synergies from diverse scientific branches have emerged.
The Summer School on Control of Surgical Robots (COSUR) 2018 funded by the ARS project, the SARAS projects, the MURAB project, the Doctoral Program in Natural Sciences and Engineering and the Department of Computer Science of the University of Verona will be from the 9th of July till the 13th;
The European Robotics Forum (ERF2018) is the most influential meeting of the robotics community in Europe and will be held in Tampere, Finland, on 13-15 March 2018.
Over 800 European robotics top experts are expected to attend the conference. Under the theme “Robots and Us”, ERF2018 covers current societal and technical themes related to the field of robotics. Interesting subjects will be discussed, including human-robot-collaboration and how robotics can improve industrial productivity and service sector operations.
