    Dear Colleagues,

    We are pleased to invite you to attend a workshop titled “Challenges and Strategies in the Design and Control of Upper Extremity Exoskeletons” which will be held on Saturday May 30, from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM during ICRA 2015, in Seattle, Washington, USA.

    The workshop aims to bring together experts from wide ranging fields including design, controls, software and human factors (biomechanics, ergonomics and neuromotor controls) to discuss the challenges in design and control of upper extremity exoskeletons and optimal solutions.

    We have invited a number of leading researchers in relevant field to give talk and participate in panels. Additionally, we will feature poster ‘teaser sessions’ where participate will pitch their poster topic, and time will also be allotted for a poster session for more in-depth conversation.

    Prospective poster presenters are invited to submit a 1-page abstract and express whether they would be interested in presenting a demo during the poster session. The submissions will undergo a review by the organizers to assess the quality and relevance to the workshop. Accepted abstracts will be made available on the workshop website.
