  • BioRob 2020 Workshop on Community-Based Rehabilitation Research using Wearable Devices 29 Nov 2020

    Dear Colleagues,
    We are pleased to invite you to attend the workshop “Community-Based Rehabilitation Research using Wearable Devices” which will be held November 29, 2020 as part of the IEEE BioRob Conference. Attendance is free for all. Workshop details including the Zoom link are available on the workshop website and the conference website.
    The objective of the workshop is to provide an educational perspective not only on the deployment of wearable devices outside the laboratory setting but also to ensure that high quality research can be achieved with such endeavors. The workshop will include talks from experts in a variety of fields of wearable devices discussing their innovative and exciting research. The format will follow the conference format (online synchronous) and recordings of the talks will be available online after the workshop.

    Workshop Date & Time: November 29, 2020. 16:20-19:00 (Eastern / New York Time)
