NEXT GENERATION INTELLIGENT SURGICAL SYSTEMS: Computer simulation meets robotics

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).

Nowadays the use of simulation in the surgical field is increasing and is becoming important both for the training of surgeons and for the planning of intervention.

Through the simulation it is possible to represent and reproduce complex anatomical responses to various stimuli for a specific patient, thus making it possible, for example, to predict the effects of some therapies and prevent potentially critical situations.

In robotic surgery, the realistic simulation of the behavior of the various organs, which represent the working environment of the robot, is of great importance for the development and validation of autonomous systems.

Audience & Attendee:

The workshop aimed at PhD students, post-docs and researchers with interest in the fields of biomechanical simulation and robotics that attended were 35.

 

Date & time:

This workshop it is a full day event on the 13th November 2019 at the Room Verde of Department of Computer Science, University of Verona (Italy) Strada le Grazie 15, 37134 Verona.

(This event substitute the one scheduled for M22 in the Communication Plan).

 

Speakers:

  • Paolo Fiorini, Full Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Verona (Italy) and founder of the ALTAIR robotics laboratory
  • Stéphane Cotin – Special guest – Director of the MIMESIS group, part of the prestigious INRIA – French research institute for digital sciences, and one of the creators of the SOFA project, an open-source framework for advanced simulation in the medical field.
  • Riccardo Muradore, Assistant Professor at the ALTAIR Robotics Laboratory, University of Verona, Verona, Italy
  • Hugo Talbot, coordinator of the open-source project SOFA (Software Open Framework Architecture) 
  • Hadrien Courtecuisse, research Scientist in the team AVR/ICube at CNRS in Strasbourg

 

The workshop is funded within the Cassini Program which aims to create a scientific network between French universities and research centers; it also benefits from the support of the Ambassade de France en Italie and the Institutfrancais.
The organization was made possible thanks to the contribution of the Dipartimento di Informatica – Università di Verona and the European research projects ARS ProjectSARAS project and ATLAS project, currently in charge of the ALTAIR Laboratory.
