The 9th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics is to be held on Sunday 26 and Monday 27 June 2016 at the Royal Geographical Society, London.

There will be interactive and hands-on workshops/tutorials organised in conjunction with the symposium on Saturday 25 and Tuesday 28 June 2016. The theme for this year's Symposium is New Challenges and Emerging Platforms.

Topics to be addressed by the symposium include, but are not limited to: 

  • Co-operative Control and Perceptual Docking 
  • Clinical highlights in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, General
  • Surgery,Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic and Paediatric Surgery 
  • Economic and general consideration of robotic surgery 
  • Emerging, multi-specialty applications of robotic technology 
  • Flexible Robotics 
  • Human robot interaction and ergonomics 
  • Intra-operative imaging and biophotonics for robotic surgery 
  • Mechatronic designs for medical robotics 
  • Medical image computing and computer assisted intervention 
  • Medical robotics for NOTES 
  • Microbot design and applications
  • Neurosurgery
  • Smart Instruments 
  • Surgical navigation and augmented reality systems 
  • Surgical simulation, training and skills assessment

The Symposium Programme will feature an impressive line-up of leading scientists and engineers in collaborative robotics, navigation and image guidance.  

We're delighted to announce that CAOS UK is being run as part of the Hamlyn Symposium this year. CAOS UK is an organisation dedicated to supporting the application and development of modern techniques for orthopaedic surgery. It aims to realise better treatments for patients and hopes to achieve this by encouraging collaboration between surgeons, scientists, engineers and industry.

Please note that paper submission is now closed.
