Advanced Robotic Assistance in Medicine:

October 5th, 2015 Klinikum rechts der Isar, Munich, Germany Room IFL


The goal of this tutorial is to use the unique opportunity of having the researchers from IROS and MICCAI conferences in the same area to foster exchange and initiate new collaborations between the robotics community (IROS) with medical imaging researchers ar MICCAI. 

In the morning session, we are planning a series of invited talks from leading institutions in the field of medical robotics interleaved with demos from the labs CAMP and MITI located at the hospital "Rechts der Isar". In the afternoon there is going to be a field trip, visiting the TUM MIMED lab (medical robotics, medical navigation systems, kinematics and additive manufacturing) in Garching next to Munich and the DLR (medical robotics, navigation) in Oberpfaffenhofen.
