Dr Ren delivered ICSRIH’19 Keynote at Shanghai

Dr. Ren delivered a keynote talk at ICSRIH’19, the 2019 International Conference on Surgical Robots and Intelligent Healthcare (ICMSR 2019), on the topic of Medical sensing and stretchable continuum, at Shanghai, China (Hosted by Shanghai Institute of Healthcare and Medical Science).

Our team papers presented at MICCAI 2019

Our teamwork on surgical instrument tracking (led by Mobarakol) was selected for oral presentation at MICCAI 2019, Shenzhen.  Another paper on Robot-Assisted Surgery Using Multi-Domain CNN led by Qiu Liang was also selected for a workshop presentation and HTL journal publication.

Key facts about MICCAI 2019:

  • 539 accepted papers
  • a low acceptance rate of 31%
  • only 50+ oral presentations
  • 2000+ attendees
  • 7 single-track oral sessions
