  • Conference on Human Factors of Robots and Exoskeletons: Rehabilitation and Assistance

    1st International Conference on Human Factors of Robots and Exoskeletons: Rehabilitation and Assistance, July 26-30, 2015, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

    During 6th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE 2015)
    July 26-30, 2015 - Caesars Palace Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

    I have a pleasure to invite you to submit the abstracts (500 words) to this 1st International Conference on Human Factors of Robots and Exoskeletons: Rehabilitation and Assistance. Abstracts will be due on January 15th.

    The AHFE 2015 Conference Proceedings will be published in cooperation with Elsevier Procedia. All papers presented during the conference and accepted (based on the review process for inclusion in the AHFE 2015 Conference Proceedings) will be indexed in the prestigious Elsevier Science Direct.

    Human Factors of Robots and Exoskeletons: Rehabilitation and Assistance aims to study multimodal interactions between a human and a robot for the purpose of augmenting human capabilities, assisting disabled persons, increasing human performance and safety, and replacing human limbs. Relearning lost functions in a patient depends on stimulation of desire to conquer the disability. The independent functioning of patients depends on intensity of treatment, task-specific exercises, active initiation of movements and motivation and feedback. Rehabilitation robots can assist with this task in multiple ways.

    Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
    • Innovative design concepts
    • Modeling and control of robot manipulators
    • Kinematics and control
    • Human-robot interaction problems
    • Human factors with respect to perception, motor skills, social aspect of interaction, and safety
    • Haptic robots: kinematics, dynamics, collision detection, and control
    • Tele-operation systems: architectures, control, virtual fixtures, and micro/nano manipulation
    • Soft robots based on variable impedance actuators
    • Medical robotics: surgical robotics, robot-supported diagnostics, micro-robots in the human body, and nanorobots at the cell level
    • Rehabilitation and assistive robotics: motor rehabilitation, exoskeletons, and robotic prosthetics
    • Exoskeletons and orthoses
    • Parallel-limb exoskeletons for load transfer


    Please visit http://www.ahfe2015.org/submission.html to learn how to submit an abstract. Early-Bird (discounted) participant registration is available until 20 December, 2014.
