SMART Lab is organizning a workshop on surgical simulation. The workshop is a great chance for students and researchers to learn about the state of the art research beind undertaken in the field of surgical simualtors. The workshop will cover the existing commercial simulators that are available, the challenges in simulator development for surgery and a hands on workshop on SOFA (Simulation Open Framework Architecture). The following schedule lists down the lectures and the excercises that will be given out during the workshop. Come join us for this wonderful learning experience !
