Karlsruhe, Germany - May 6th, 2013 - Full day

1  Motivation and Objectives

Recent technological advances have made minimally-invasive procedures the standard in modern healthcare. These procedures offer major benefits for the patient, including reduced post-surgical trauma and shorter hospitalization. As a drawback, they suffer from a limited field of view, and the loss of depth perception due to the use of 2D endoscopic images as orientation means.
These issues can be addressed by devising new sensing modalities as well as new robotics and computer-vision methods to process laparoscopic videos (e.g., anatomic reconstruction, surface registration, motion and tool tracking, etc.), in order to provide in-vivo surgical guidance information, thus improving the surgeon's visual awareness about the surgical target. However, due to high tissue deformations, image specularities and clutter, standard robotics and computer-vision methods cannot be straightforwardly applied and new solutions must be sought to propose robust and efficient solutions to these important challenges.
By bringing together researchers in the fields of medical imaging, computer vision, and robotic surgery, SurVis will provide a unique opportunity to share research findings, ideas, and future directions in such a multi-disciplinary field of research. In addition to the presentations, the SurVis program will include round table discussions with the attendants.

3  Organizers

Dr. Gian-Luca Mariottini, University of Texas at Arlington, Arlington, TX, USA
Bio: Gian-Luca Mariottini received his Ph.D. in Robotics from the University of Siena, Italy, in 2006. Since 2010 is an Assistant Professor at the CSE Dept. at the University of Texas at Arlington, USA, where he directs the ASTRA Robotics Lab. He held post-doctoral positions at the GRASP Lab (UPENN), at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and at the University of Minnesota. His research interests are in robotic vision, with a particular focus on surgical vision (feature matching, structure from motion, machine learning, etc.) and augmented-reality systems for minimally-invasive surgery.

Dr. Peter Mountney, Siemens Corporate Research, Princeton, NJ, USA
Bio: Peter Mountney received his PhD in Medical Imaging from Imperial College London in 2010 focusing on laparoscopic computer vision for robotics and pre/intra-operative image fusion. In 2011 he joined the interventional team at Siemens Corporate Research working on multi modal image fusion for a wide variety of procedures including cardiac and abdominal surgery. His research interests include feature detection and tracking, pose estimation, structure from motion, SLAM and machine learning.

Dr. Nicolas Padoy, University of Strasbourg, France
Bio: Nicolas Padoy is an Assistant Professor at the University of Strasbourg, France, since September 2012, holding a Chair of Excellence in medical robotics within the ICube laboratory/MixSurg institute. His research focuses on computer vision, activity recognition and the applications thereof to surgical workflow analysis and human-machine cooperation during surgery. He completed his PhD jointly between the Technische Universitat Munchen (TUM), Germany, and the INRIA in Nancy, France. Subsequently, he was a postdoctoral researcher and later an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA.
