This year’s Symposium theme is “Surgery and Beyond” and is led by Professor the Lord Ara Darzi, who holds the Paul Hamlyn Chair of Surgery at Imperial College London, the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research, London and Dr Kevin Cleary, Scientific Lead, Sheikh Zayed Institute for Paediatric Surgical Innovation, Children’s National Hospital. Now in its 13th consecutive year, the Symposium is the leading annual international conference on medical robotics, current clinical practice and emerging technologies in robotic surgery, with highlight activities this year including:

  • A full programme of interactive workshops exploring hot topics and cutting-edge technologies;
  • Two-day conference hosting international, peer-reviewed papers, alongside invited world-renowned speakers;
  • The Surgical Robot Challenge, highlighting the latest in robotic technologies in surgical practice;
  • Full CPD accreditation by the Royal College of Surgeons, demonstrating the recognition and value of the programme among clinical practitioners.

The programme will feature internationally renowned keynote speakers, paper authors and delegates from leading medical, science and technology institutions covering clinical specialities in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Neurosurgery, Thoracic Surgery, General Surgery, Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic and Paediatric Surgery. A range of unique, hands-on workshops will be on offer spanning topics in the fields of bionic technologies and implantable robots, e-skins and advanced materials for Soft Robotics, and robotic autonomy in surgery. A current call for papers can be found on the website and the deadline for submissions is 7th February 2020.

Commenting on the Hamlyn Symposium, Professor the Lord Ara Darzi said: “The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics aims to offer a platform to showcase the latest technological advances in medical robotics, as well as bring together talented colleagues who share a driving motivation to explore ideas and themes beyond surgical developments in providing the best possible care to their patients. We have built a formidable reputation over the last 13 years and have worked hard to make the symposium one of the leading international events in medical robotics.”

Dr. Kevin Cleary also stated: “The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics has become the leading international event in the medical robotics field and should be on the agenda of any researcher in the field. The mix of clinical and technical experts attending makes a lively program and discourse. The event is appropriate for both experience and new researchers, including students, postdocs, trainees, and fellows.”
