  • CFP: IEEE-TNSRE Special Issue on Wearable Robotics

    ================================================== ====================
    Call for Papers:
    IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering
    Special Issue on Wearable Robotics for Motion Assistance and Rehabilitation
    Abstract deadline : October 31, 2014
    Paper submission deadline: December 31, 2014
    ================================================== ====================

    This special issue aims to gather researchers from different backgrounds to
    highlight the state of the art, the current and future trends of the field of
    Wearable Robotics for Motion Assistance and Rehabilitation. The accepted papers
    will provide discussions about the challenges and limiting factors for
    developing sustainable wearable robots for assistance and rehabilitation of
    human movements. The special issue aims at publishing original, significant and
    visionary papers describing the growing challenges of using novel human-robot
    multimodal interaction paradigms. Research related to novel kinematics and
    actuation solutions for wearable robots will be considered, and also issues
    related to cognitive human robot interactions. The special issue is also about
    understanding the recent trends to promote: energy harvesting, complete
    wearability, portability and reliability of the device, as well as user’s
    safety. Submissions of scientific results from experts in academia and industry
    worldwide are strongly encouraged.

    Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
    • biosignal processing and applications for wearable robotics;
    • neurological disorders and rehabilitation using wearable robots;
    • neuro-interface orthotic and prosthetic devices;
    • mechatronic artefacts and control of human movements;
    • cognitive/physical interaction paradigms for assistive robotics;
    • novel kinematics and actuation solutions.

    Paper submission and selection:
    Interested authors are encouraged to submit one IEEE page A4 abstract to the
    guest editors (emails-below) BY 31 October 2014. After validation by guest
    editors, selected contributors will be asked to submit full version papers by
    31th of December 2014. All submitted full papers will be rigorously reviewed
    and the selection of papers will be based on their originality, timeliness,
    significance and relevance to the scope of the special issue. Submitted papers
    should not be under consideration for publication anywhere else. Information
    concerning the template can be found at the following link:
