Hamlyn symposium on medical robotics

  • This event has passed.
Every year researchers, clinicians and engineers are invited to submit papers on a range of topics. The expert Programme Committee reviews all papers by rating them against particular criteria.
The Symposium is in its seventh year. It is now being held over four days to include workshops on various clinical and technical topics and a two-day main conference with participation of invited/keynote speakers, paper authors and delegates from leading medical, science and technology institutions.


Topics to be addressed by the 2014 symposium include, but are not limited to: 
  • Clinical highlights in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, General Surgery, Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic, and Paediatric Surgery
  • Emerging, multi-specialty applications of robotic technology
  • Medical robotics for NOTES
  • Mechatronic designs for medical robotics
  • Microbot design and applications
  • Surgical simulation, training and skills assessment
  • Human robot interaction and ergonomics
  • Surgical navigation and augmented reality systems
  • Intra-operative imaging and biophotonics for robotic surgery
  • Medical image computing and computer assisted intervention
  • Economic and general consideration of robotic surgery
  • Wearable robotics, exoskeletons and actuated prostheses
  • Neurorobotics

All submissions will be reviewed by members of the program review committee and assessed for quality and best means of presentation.
