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.
