Join us during UK Robotics Week from Sunday 25th to Wednesday 28th June as we celebrate our 10th Hamlyn Symposium at the Royal Geographical Society in London. Through a series of presentations, competitions, challenges and innovations, guests will discover what to expect from the emerging world of medical robotics in the next ten years.

We have a packed programme for you this year with keynote speeches from Professor Dong-Soo Kwon of the Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in Korea; Dr Catherine Mohr from Intuitive Surgical; Professor Joseph Sung from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Professor Andrew Turberfield from the University of Oxford.

This year, we are introducing a Leader’s Forum to the conference. Chaired by Professors Russ Taylor and Hamlyn Centre Co-Director, Guang-Zhong Yang and sponsored by Science Robotics Magazine, our Leaders Forum offers a platform for experts from across the globe to provide their views on the way forward for medical robotics in the years to come. Experts include Professors Nikolay Vasilyev, Howie Choset, Bradley Nelson and Rick Satava.

Workshops and demonstrations will be held on Sunday 25th and Wednesday 28th June including the unveiling of Intuitive Surgical’s new Davinci X Robot. Our Surgical Robot Challenge will also be hosted on Sunday 25th June and on Monday 26th, we are hosting an evening drinks reception at the Science Museum to celebrate our 10th birthday.
