NEXT GENERATION INTELLIGENT SURGICAL SYSTEMS: Computer simulation meets robotics

The SARAS Workshop 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.

The 12th International Workshop on Human-Friendly Robotics (HFR 2019)

The 12th International Workshop on Human-Friendly Robotics (HFR 2019) will be organized on October 24-25, 2019, by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and will take place at the Hotel Posta, Reggio Emilia, Italy.

The growing need to automate daily tasks, combined with new robot technologies, is driving the development of human-friendly robots, i.e., safe and dependable machines, operating in the close vicinity to humans or directly interacting with them in a wide range of domains. The technological shift from classical industrial robots, which are safely kept away from humans in cages, to robots that are used in close collaboration with humans, is facing major challenges that need to be overcome.

The organizing committee is composed by Federica Ferraguti and Valeria Villani (General Chairs) and Lorenzo Sabattini (Program Chair) from the ARSControl research group of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and Marcello Bonfè (Publicity Chair) from the University of Ferrara. The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers so to share knowledge on all aspects related to human-robot interaction and the introduction of robots into everyday life.

Objective:

The objective of the workshop is to stimulate a focused single-track discussion and bring together researchers so to share knowledge on design, control, safety and ethical issues, concerning the introduction of robots into everyday life.

Workshop Towards Robotic Autonomy in Surgery (HSMR 2019)

Hamlyn Symposium: Sunday 23rd June 2019 08:30 – 15:30  SAPM04

The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (HSMR) provides an annual forum for surgeons and engineers from across the globe, to network and explore the latest developments in medical robotics.

The Symposium attracted over 500 delegates last year and now it ints 12th year, it has become a leading international conference on medical robotics,  current clinical practice and emerging technologies in robotic surgery. One of our highlights this year will be a Clinical Leaders’ Forum, in which leading robotic surgeons in different fields of expertise, will come together to discuss the ways in which technologies can best be applied in clinical practice.

 

Highlights of the Symposium will include:

  • The final of the Surgical Robot Challenge 2019, an international competition showcasing the latest innovations in Surgical Robotics;
  • A full programme of interactive workshops exploring a wide-range of topics and technologies;
  • Clinical Leaders’ Forum to discuss the ways in which technologies can best be applied in clinical practice;
  • Two-day main Symposium hosting peer-reviewed papers and posters submitted from around the world, alongside invited speakers.

Workshop “Next Generation Surgery” – ICRA 2019″

Next Generation Surgery: Seamless integration of Robotics, Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation within the operating rooms

ICRA 2019 – May 24, 2019 – Montreal, Canada

ICRA2019

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 9th Joint Workshop on New Technologies for Computer/Robot Assisted (CRAS 2019)

CRAS2019

CRAS2019In March 21st and 22nd surgeons and engineers will meet in Genoa to exchange experiences, ideas and discuss the future of surgical technologies. For the first time, the National Congress of the Italian Polispecialistic Society of Young Surgeons (SPIGC) will be completely merged with the Joint Workshop on Computer/Robot Assisted Surgery (CRAS) in a large event dedicated to ENCOURAGE YOUNG SURGEONS AND ENGINEERS.

One event, two conferences – merged together!

CRAS+SPIGC 2019 will be a UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY for multi-cultural interactions, for identifying surgical needs and potential engineering solutions, and for the establishment of new multi-disciplinary collaborations. In addition, all research teams working on novel surgical technologies will have the opportunity to demonstrate their prototypes during the conference and enter the New Surgical Technologies Competition.

 

New surgical technologies demonstrations and competition

Research teams working on novel surgical technologies will have the opportunity to demonstrate their prototypes during the conference and enter the New Surgical Technologies Competition. The surgeon delegates will vote and decide the winner!
