Raven/dVRK Surgical Robotics Research Symposium


This is an online-only series for sharing within the common platform community. The overall theme is experimental minimally-invasive surgical robotics research, typically, but not limited to, work on the Raven and dVRK platforms. The intent is for this symposium to be a recurring online event.

Symposium Format

Each session will be 1.5 hours in length, with approximately 4-6 presentations. Planned themes include:

  1. Perception and Automation in surgical robotics
  2. Novel surgical instruments for surgical robots
  3. Other topics as submitted including but not limited to
    • Teleoperation
    • Human-Robot Interactions in surgery
    • Computational, sensing, and robotic approaches to surgical skill assessment

Call for Contributions

Interested speakers should submit a 1/2 page abstract via this google form. New sessions will be scheduled based on the abstracts received.
