Call For Papers: ICRA 2022 Workshop on “Frontiers of Endoluminal Intervention: Clinical Opportunities and Technical Challenges"

The workshop is supported by the IEEE RAS TC for Surgical Robotics

Date: Monday 23rd May 2022

in conjunction with the IEEE ICRA 2022 Conference in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

This workshop aims to address clinical opportunities, technical requirements and regulatory challenges for translating continuum robotics to practical clinical use. It is designed as an interactive workshop between researchers, engineers and clinicians to brainstorm about the different areas and identify barriers to using continuum robots in a clinical setting. The result of the workshop will be to create a list of technical and clinical challenges that need to be resolved while also serving to build bridges between the clinical, engineering and regulatory communities.
