OR 2.0 Context-Aware Operating Theaters Shenzhen MICCAI'19 Satellite Event
Surgical robotic tools and digitally enhanced operating theaters have been giving surgeons a helping hand for years. While they provide great control, precision and flexibility to the surgeons, they don’t yet address the cognitive assistance needs in the operating theater. We are on the verge of a new wave of innovations of artificial intelligence powered, context-aware operating theaters. We envision future operating theaters that are holistic and seamlessly integrated in the surgery process. They will monitor their environment by gathering multi-modal data from sources such as cameras, sensors, monitoring devices, patient profile and history, and they will respond accordingly. Although this could be realized by following pre-established rules, a better and more holistic way would be to develop context-aware systems that are able to perceive and reason; make sense of ongoing processes, project outcomes of a number of possible actions that could be taken within this context, provide quantitative support to aid the decision making process, evaluate the outcomes of the action taken and use this information for the next steps. Advances in context-awareness can answer these needs and complement the surgical team by assisting the surgical procedures, providing real-time guidance during complex tasks and unexpected events.
This workshop aims to highlight the potential use of, with a particular focus but not limited to, machine vision and perception, robotics, surgical simulation and modeling, multi-modal data fusion and visualization, image analysis, advanced imaging, advanced display technologies, human-computer interfaces, sensors, wearable and implantable electronics and robots, visual attention models, cognitive models, decision support networks to enhance surgical procedural assistance, context-awareness and team communication in the operating theater, human-robot collaborative systems, and surgical training and assessment.
OR 2.0 Shenzhen 2019 will be held in conjunction with the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) conference, and will take place in Shenzhen, China. The first International OR 2.0 Context-Aware Operating Theaters Workshop was held in 16 September 2018, in Granada, Spain in conjunction with MICCAI 2018 (See OR 2.0 Granada 2018 for details). This year, we will expand our board with an industrial board from various companies that work on related topics. We also introduce bench to OR award, which will be given to works that have potential to be easily translated into clinical applications. We will emphasize the progress of the domain towards multidisciplinary approaches and teams with a focus on translation and clinical applications. Historically, OR 2.0 has its roots from, and is a new direction to the previously organized M2CAI (Modeling and Monitoring of Computer Assisted Interventions) workshop series which started in 2009 in London (UK) and has been organized every year until 2016 in Athens.
The workshop will feature clinicians, engineers and industry partners. All students and researchers interested in the future technologies that will define the next generation operating theatres, regardless of experience, are invited. Accepted papers will be published jointly with MICCAI 2018 in a Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Proceedings Volume.
Call for Papers
Full paper submissions of 6-8 pages will be featured. Oral and poster papers will be accepted. Eligible oral paper authors will present their work as part of the workshop program, while both oral and poster papers will be featured at poster session during coffee break. The distinction between oral and posters will be made by the board according to reviews and relevance to the theme of the workshop. The number of accepted papers will be based on quality of the submissions, number of submissions and time constraints of the program. Best paper/posters will be awarded. This year, we will also be giving a bench to OR award for works that have potential to be easily translated into clinical applications. We would like to thank our sponsor Intuitive for sponsoring a total of 2000$ in prizes for awards. All participants will have a chance to actively participate in open forum discussions.

The deadline is extended to 19/07/2019 Pacific Time (PT) 11:59PM. If you have already submitted, you can still edit until this date.
The review process is double blind and submissions should conform to the MICCAI anonymity guidelines. Please do not forget to anonymize the file names of your submissions. If you wish to upload your paper on Arxiv, you may do so. However your paper should stand alone without any supplementary material and/or reference to an ArXiv post.
LNCS templates will be used for paper submissions. You can find author guidelines for this format here: LNCS Author Guidelines
You can download the templates following the links: Latex (preferred) or Word
Please keep your original latex or word files with supporting materials (images, tables, references etc.), we will need them for camera-ready submissions for the joint proceedings.
Papers should present original scientific material in English text, featuring overview/motivation, material and methods, experiments, results and conclusions.
