On 17 June 2013 for the first time the WORKSHOP ON PROGRAMMING CYBER PHYSICAL SYSTEMS, organized by Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, took place. Stefan Franke from the research group Model-based Automation and Integration (MAI) spoke in his presentation “The surgical workflow management for the digital operating room” about the research results at ICCAS, relating to the integration of medical devices and the modeling of surgical workflows.
Within the workshop an intensive exchange on the topics process modeling and intelligent man-machine interaction arose. New goals and work areas were identified between different disciplines. The discussions on main topics, such as surgical ontologies and process modeling, will be continued over a common communication platform.
