The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics celebrated its 10th year in 2017. The 2018 event will be held from Sunday 24th - Wednesday 27th June 2018, lasting over four days to include workshops on various clinical and technical topics as well as a two-day main conference with participation of invited/keynote speakers, paper authors and delegates from leading medical, science and technology institutions.
The Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery at Imperial College London has announced the key workshops, plus the launch of a new CEO and Founders Forum. The interactive and hands-on workshops – spanning deep-learning for medical robotics to wearable and assisted robots – will take place on Sunday 24th June and Wednesday 27th June 2018 (from 9am to 1pm, and 2pm to 5.30pm), and the new CEO and Founders Forum will be held on June 26th. The Hamlyn Symposium and Surgical Robot Challenge – held during the Symposium – are core events of UK Robotics Week, which returns from 21st – 29th June 2018.
Interactive workshops include:
- New instruments and novel mechatronic designs
- Intra-operative imaging and sensing
- Biophotonics for robotic surgery
- Bioinspired robotics
- Soft robotics
- Continuum robots (e.g. catheter, concentric tube robots)
- MR compatible robots
- Smart surgical instruments
- Microbot design and applications
- Learning and co-operative control
- Robotic surgical workflows and analytics
- Surgical vision and augmented reality
- Surgical simulation, training and skills assessment
- Wearable and assistive/rehabilitation robots
