We invite participants to submit short papers (2~4 pages) of relevant work via EasyChair. The accepted contributions will be posted on the workshop website but they will not appear in the official IEEE proceedings. Accepted contributions will have the opportunity to present their work in a poster session and a 3 min presentation at the workshop. Selected contributions (short paper submitted only to the workshop) will be invited for a special issue on Journal of Medical Robotics Research
