HOTEL ACCOMMODATION for the IEEE International Conference on Rehabilitation
Robotics (IEEE ICORR2005) IS FILLING-UP.

With little more than a month to go we urge ICORR 2005 attendees to make
sure they have registered for ICORR 2005
(http://www.smpp.northwestern.edu/icorr2005/registration.htm)
and to make that their accommodations are taken care of
(http://www.smpp.northwestern.edu/ICORR2005/accommodations.htm).

ICORR 2005 is taking place immediately prior to the 4th July Weekend, which
in the USA is a national holiday - a lot of families include the 4th of
July weekend in their vacation plans. Consequently Hotel space in Chicago
at this time is at a premium and is going fast.

We also wish to remind potential attendees that ICORR 2005 has also been
approved for Continuing Education Credits for Physical Therapists,
Occupational Therapists and for Medical Doctors Please refer to the website
for more details.

We encourage potential attendees to register. Students, disabled
investigators, women, minorities and users of these technologies are
particularly encouraged to participate..

Being a IEEE sponsored conference accepted paper will be indexed in the IEEE
explore database.
