  • Call for contributions - ICRA 2024 WS - Assistive Systems: Lab to Patient Care

    Dear Colleagues,

    We kindly invite you to attend and/or contribute to our Full Day Workshop at ICRA-2024.More details below:

    Assistive Systems: Lab to Patient Care
    Monday, 13th May, 2024
    Pacific Convention Plaza Yokohama - Japan
    IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)

    Important Dates
    • Submission Deadline: March 27, 2024 (AoE)
    • Notification of Acceptance: April 21, 2024
    • Final Version Due: May 1st, 2024
    • Workshop date: May 13th, 2024
    Submission Guidelines
    The papers and videos will be peer-reviewed (single-blind) for the relevance of content to the workshop and basic quality. Papers must be up to 4 pages (without references) in IEEE Conf format with 2 columns. Videos may be submitted as a standalone system demo or as a demo/experiment described in a submitted paper. Videos should be less than 3 minutes long.
    We will especially encourage women and young researchers' participation, to support gender balance in robotics and the promotion of early-career researchers.

    Submissions via the following form:

    Best Workshop Paper Award - Sponsored by Delsys
    The award for the best-extended abstract will reflect both the quality of the document, as well as the quality of the presentation and the poster interaction. We are also very happy to announce that Delsys ( has also offered a 500 € prize award for the winner!!!

    An independent committee will be selected to judge the contributions and select the winner.
    Get ready and prepare your best work!

    Best Video Award - Sponsored by Prensilia SRL
    Thanks to Prensilia SRL (, we are very glad to announce a prize award of 300 € for the best video!
    Papers with video as supplementary content will automatically enter the best video competition. Standalone video submissions will only be considered for the best video prize.

    Aims and Scope
    Our workshop aims to foster connections among a diverse group of researchers, experts, and professionals at the cutting edge of healthcare robotics and artificial intelligence. Our focus is to bring to light the challenges and innovative solutions involved in moving innovations from the lab to real-world clinical settings.
    Specifically, the workshop seeks to:
    • Review and harmonise groundbreaking technologies in robotics, AI, wearables, and sensors with the potential to transform patient care;
    • Highlight the crucial role of co-creation with end-users, clinical validation, and acceptance, recognizing them as cornerstones for adhering to best practices in conducting trials, gathering relevant data, and ensuring safety;
    • Unfold the challenges of building commercially viable products and the in-depth comprehension of ethics and regulatory requisites;
    • Showcase success stories and case studies highlighting the challenges and effective strategies for different cases;

    An underlying theme of the event is the power of interdisciplinary cooperation, bringing together the expertise of engineers, rehabilitation scientists, clinicians, care professionals, and industry and non-academic partners. Our objective is to outline a pathway for the community to seamlessly integrate assistive technologies into society.
