About the Symposium
Cancellation of the Hamlyn Symposium 2020:
On behalf of the Hamlyn Symposium conference committee, we regret to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics, due to the ongoing threat posed by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The Symposium attracts around 600 international delegates each year, representing numerous countries around the world. We deemed it necessary to cancel the conference after the World Health Organization identified COVID-19 as a global pandemic.
Our priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our participants, our staff, our corporate sponsors, and exhibitors. With individuals attending the conference from all over the world, we know that this is both disappointing and challenging from a planning perspective.
We are all looking forward to running this symposium in June 2021.

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring and/or exhibiting at the 13th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (#HSMR2020).
The symposium has grown in prestige over this period and now reaches an international audience of over 550 delegates with a range of clinical, scientific and engineering expertise. The symposium's focus is the discussion and demonstration of cutting-edge clinical practice and emerging technologies in robotic surgery.
Led by Professor the Lord Ara Darzi and Professor Ferdinando Rodriguez, this year’s Symposium entitled “Surgery and Beyond” will be held at the Royal Geographical Society on 20th - 23rd June 2020.
We have received full CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Surgeons and to complement this we are planning a programme with an increased focus on clinical practitioner centered talks, workshops and presentations. RCS is a well-recognised provider of CPD accreditation which aids participation and engagement by clinical practitioners.
The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics offers opportunities for prospective partners to gain exposure and the ability to showcase new platform designs and allied technologies on medical robotics focusing on the clinical practice of robotics surgery, economic and patient care considerations.
Your organisation can take advantage of an extended period of exposure during the lead up to the symposium and beyond. This period will involve sustained promotion of the symposium and sponsors through a range of channels including press releases, social media activity and other publicity driven opportunities.
