Events & Global Engagement
Hamlyn Centre plays an active role in international collaboration and outreach activities. Focusing on technological innovation, but with a strong emphasis on clinical translation and direct patient benefits with global impacts, the Centre is at the forefront of research in imaging, sensing and robotics for addressing global health challenges associated with demographic, environmental, social and economic changes. Hamlyn therefore works with partners to host the remarkable Hamlyn Symposium and engages in an array of international activities.
UK Robotics Week
The UK Robotics Week is now the leading national event in RAS with over 165 events (including 54 core events organised by the Network). UK Robotics Week adds focus to a thriving programme of existing robotics activities that take place throughout the year. By linking to other key events in the robotics calendar, such as EU Robotics Week and UK RAS SIG, UK Robotics Week aims to ensure that robotics remains high on the agenda as one of the transformative technologies of today and tomorrow.
The Hamlyn Symposium
The Hamlyn Symposium has been successfully conducted for the past 11 years. Every year researchers, clinicians and engineers are invited to submit papers on a range of topics covering clinical specialities in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Neuro Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, General Surgery, Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic and Paediatric Surgery. The Hamlyn Symposium 2020 will be held on 20th - 23rd June 2020, including workshops on various clinical and technical topics as well as the main conference with the participants from leading medical, science and technology institutions.
Event & Global Engagement
Hamlyn Centre organises an annual Summer School for talented undergraduate or postgraduate students around the world. Focusing on machine learning, robotics and sensor networks, the course consists of taught lectures by leading researchers in the field, mini-projects and workshops on research & communication skills training with extensive social activities, to explore the vibrant social life and culture of London.
The Hamlyn Winter School focuses on both the technical and clinical aspects of Surgical Imaging and Vision. Through invited lectures, hands-on demonstrations, workshops, and mini-projects, the purpose of our winter school is to help researchers familiarise with the cutting-edge research of this rapidly expanding field. The Hamlyn Winter School on Surgical Imaging and Vision will take place at the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London, from Monday 30th November to Friday 4th December 2020.
