IEEE BIOROB 2018, 26 -29 August 2018, Enschede, the Netherlands
7th IEEE RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics
CALL FOR WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS
SUBMISSION DEADLINE APPROACHING SOON

BIOROB 2018 aims to provide an extensive repertoire of workshops and tutorials prior to the conference on August, Sunday the 26th, 2018. We are happy to invite proposals for half-day and full-day events. Please, find below relevant deadlines:

February 15, 2018: Workshop and tutorial proposals submission deadline
March 22, 2018: Notification of acceptance
August 26, 2018: Workshops and tutorials

Deadlines are set at 23:59 Pacific Time.

For information and submissions please visit the following website: https://www.biorob2018.org/call-for-...and-tutorials/

Workshops should present and focalize innovative research on emerging and rapidly developing areas at the intersection between biorobotics and biomechatronics. Tutorials should provide in-depth insights into methodologies and techniques that are bound to enable progress in biorobotics- and biomechatronics-related fields. Proposals should specify how the event engages attendees and encourages interaction with speakers that would not be otherwise possible via regular BioRob sessions.

If an invited organizer is involved in more than one proposal, this must be noted sorting proposals in descending order of priority. If multiple excellent proposals are received on overlapping topics, acceptance may be conditional to merging proposals into one single event.

Proposals must be submitted via PaperPlaza (https://ras.papercept.net/conferences/) and must address the following points:

  • Type and Duration
  • Title
  • Organizers
  • Objectives
  • List of speakers
  • Intended audience
  • Expected attendance
  • Why this workshop/tutorial is not expected to be covered by a regular BIOROB session
  • Details of other workshops/tutorials where organizers are involved
  • Support/Endorsements
  • Special requests (equipment or other issues)


A Microsoft Word template is available to help structure the proposal from the following link: https://www.biorob2018.org/call-for-...and-tutorials/. Organizers of accepted proposals will be asked to provide an abstract and a dedicated website for their event. For any question, please email workshopchair@biorob2018.org

Workshop and tutorial submissions will be reviewed by the organizing committee and organizers will be informed of the decision in due time. We encourage you to be a part of BIOROB 2018 and are looking forward to receiving your proposals soon!
