*** 13th-19th July 2008 ***
Monte S.Pietro, Bologna, Italy


Promoted by:
Dept. of Electronics Computer Science & Systems (DEIS) University of Bologna

Short Introduction:
The Summer School is primarily addressed to PhD students, researchers and
professionals interested in the latest advances on assistive and rehabilitation
technologies for the neuro-motor and cognitive function, and their route towards
clinical applicability.
The program will include topics as (tentative list):
- design, testing and validation of portable systems based on motion sensors
- ubiquitous monitoring of physical activities
- bio- and neuro-feedback
- reliability studies: from prototypes to validated tools
- users' acceptability of intelligent assistive technology

Frontal lectures, interactive lectures and labs, open discussions and an
industry corner will give to participants the opportunity of a crash course in
the technologies for healthy movement across a spectrum of different
applications, from clinical rehabilitation to ergonomics, from ambient assisted
living to prosthetics.
