  • Clinical highlights in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, General Surgery, Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic, and Paediatric Surgery
  • Emerging, multi-specialty applications of robotic technology
  • Medical robotics for NOTES
  • Mechatronic designs for medical robotics
  • Microbot design and applications
  • Surgical simulation, training and skills assessment
  • Human robot interaction and ergonomics
  • Surgical navigation and augmented reality systems
  • Intra-operative imaging and biophotonics for robotic surgery
  • Medical image computing and computer assisted intervention
  • Economic and general consideration of robotic surgery
All submissions will be reviewed by members of the program review committee and assessed for quality and best means of presentation.
