Activities

Workshops and tutorials on surgical robotics have become recurring components of ICRA, IROS, and BioRob conferences. The TC chairs have successfully supported, or organized/co-organized in some of these workshops at IEEE and Robotics: Science and Systems conferences, summer schools, and symposiums. We have listed below some recent activities.
