CRAS 2024

The 13th edition of CRAS will take place at the University of Southern Denmark, in Odense, Denmark.

Surgical robotics is revolutionizing medical practices by enhancing precision and reducing invasiveness in surgeries. These advancements facilitate complex procedures, improve patient outcomes, and open new possibilities in autonomous surgery, expanding access to high-quality surgical care. The integration of AI and patient-specific data into robotic systems paves the way for personalized surgical experiences, while also presenting new challenges in training and ethical considerations.

In this 13th edition, communications are expected to relate advances in the following fields: Advanced Computer-Assisted Surgery Systems, Robotic Platforms and Systems for Surgical Procedures, Sensing and Imaging Technologies in Surgery, AI and Machine Learning Applications for Surgical Autonomation, Surgical Simulation and Training Tools.

Extended abstracts (2 pages) discussing new technologies for computer and robot assisted surgery are solicited.

CRAS 2024 is supported by the SDU robotics section.
