  • Extended deadline: Call for Posters: ICRA2014 Workshop RoboAssist 2014

    Due to many requests the deadline has been extended to March 31, 2014 for the
    submission of the extended abstract (one A4 page)

    Wearable Robotics for motion Assistance and rehabilitation - RoboAssist 2014

    An interactive poster presentation session will be held during RoboAssist 2014
    and will provide an opportunity to young researchers (PhD students and posdocs)
    to present their works-in-progress. Topics of interest are the same as the
    research topics of RoboAssist 2014 (see below). Presenting a poster is a great
    opportunity to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research
    from a knowledgeable crowd at the Workshop.

    A single page description should be submitted by email to the organizers
    (emails below) no later than March 16, 2014. Notification for poster acceptance
    will be sent on March 31, 2014. Priority will be given for Phd students,
    Postdocs and industry/start-up organization. Accepted posters must be presented
    at the poster session of the workshop.

    Submission of one A4 page: March 31, 2014
    Notification of Acceptance: April 07, 2014
    Workshop: June 5, 2014

    This workshop aims at contributing to discuss the state of the art and the
    future trends of the use of wearable robotics for motion assistance and
    rehabilitation. Starting from the analysis of case-studies related to upper-
    and lower-limb wearable robots for functional motion assistance, rehabilitation
    or augmentation, this workshop aims at identifying major scientific and
    technological challenges, as well as the breakthroughs still needed to achieve
    the development of wearable robots endowed with advanced human-robot
    interaction modalities. More than ten experts will present selected recent
    case-studies related to basic enabling technologies or design methodologies.
    Experts will be renowned representatives of the different scientific fields
    contributing to the advancement of wearable robotics, such as: robotics,
    mechatronics, bio-mechanics, biomedical and rehabilitation engineering,
    mechanical engineering, control and system engineering.

    This workshop on Wearable Robotics for motion Assistance and rehabilitation -
    RoboAssist 2014 will be held on the 5th of June, 2014, at the Hong Kong
    Convention and Exhibition Center, Hong Kong, China,, in conjunction with
