  • BioRob 2020 in NYC - Call for Papers and Workshops

    Dear Colleagues,

    It is our extreme pleasure to share with you the following call for
    papers and workshops for the eighth bi-annual International Conference on Biomedical
    Robotics and Biomechatronics (BioRob) in New York City, USA.
    We hope to see you all in 2020!
    Below are the important dates, scope, and topics of interest:


    Important dates

    Feb. 7: Full paper/workshop proposal submissions for review
    Apr. 24: Decision of acceptance
    May 8: Submission of final papers with Conference Registration



    BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the
    application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The
    primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a
    “biomechatronic” point of view, trying to understand the scientific and
    engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This
    profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact
    can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of
    novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many
    different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices
    that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in
    prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation and personal


    Topics of interest include:

    - Biomedical
    - Robotics
    - Biomechatronics
    - Robotics and Rehabilitation
    - Biologically Inspired Robotics
    - Robotic Surgery
    - Human Machine Interaction
    - Wearable Technologies
    - Brain Machine Interfaces
    - Neuroprostheses
    - Robotics in Ageing
    - Robotic Companions and Homecare
    - Technology Translation and Commercialization
    - Human Augmentation
    - Micro Robotics
    - Nano Robotics
    - Medical Imaging and Vision


    Wish you all happy holidays with your family and friends.
