CBMS 2011 - the 24th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems
 
June 27th - 30th, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK

Medical Robotics

The field of robotics in the medical field is poised for very significant growth in the immediate future. A confluence of recent academic and industrial research has reached a threshold which is expected to lead to a breadth of new products ranging from: rehabilitation robots, service robots for the elderly and physically challenged, surgical mechanisms for minimally invasive procedures, new tools in informatics for immediate physician access to patient records, and tele-operated devices for field first aid. This progress has created a rapidly growing worldwide demand for new professionals in this area. Even more so than mobile or industrial robotics, however, medical robotics represents the fusion of a range of subjects; researchers with domain knowledge in mechanical engineering, medicine, electrical engineering, nursing, physiotherapy, computer science and informatics, neuroscience, physiology, artificial intelligence, and even psychology are all in a position to contribute to new products and research in this arena.

This special track invites papers from researchers engaged in the following topics:

  • Emerging applications of robotic technology
  • Haptics in medical robotics
  • Rehabilitation robotics
  • Robotics in surgery
  • Human robot interaction and ergonomics
  • Surgical navigation and augmented reality systems
  • Intra-operative imaging and patient registration
  • Robotics assistive technologies and personal care robots
