SOMMeRS: Southern Ontario Medical MicroRobotics Symposium

Tuesday, July 11, 2023 8:30 am - 6:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)


We are pleased to announce the SOMMeRS 2023: Southern Ontario Medical MicroRobotics Symposium on Tuesday, July 11, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST on the Waterloo campus. Registration is required, but available free of charge for in-person participation. 

SOMMeRS is a celebration of over 20 years of medical microrobotics research with pioneers in the field. The symposium will shine a spotlight on the growing multidisciplinary field of medical nano/microrobotics in our community at Waterloo and neighbouring cities in Southern Ontario. This is a great opportunity for active researchers in microrobotics and related topics to connect and share their progress and challenges.   

Nano/microrobotics is an emerging multidisciplinary field that brings together different disciplines of science, engineering, and medicine with the goal of revolutionizing medical interventions such as noninvasive surgery, targeted drug and cell delivery and diagnostics.

Graduate students and postdocs: present your work during the poster session with a chance to win a poster prize, kindly sponsored by Wiley’s Advanced Intelligent Systems!
