IEEE Transactions on Robotics 
Special Issue on Bio-Robotics

The main objective of Bio-Robotics is to investigate the working 
principles of biological systems from
a biomechatronic viewpoint and to exploit this knowledge in order to 
develop methodologies and innovative
technologies for the design and fabrication of bio-inspired machines 
and systems, characterized by different sizes (from macro to micro 
and nano) and with advanced performance (e.g., humanoids and 

The IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ROBOTICS invites you to submit papers in 
this field, in response to a call for a Special Issue devoted to 
Bio-Robotics. We would like to present the main achievements on 
different technical topics relevant to the development of 
bio-inspired mechatronic devices and robotic systems, including the 
engineering aspects of the development of bio-mimetic and 
bio-inspired machines.

The Guest Editors of the Special Issue are:

<mailto:dario at sssup.it>Prof. Paolo Dario, ARTS & CRIM Labs, Scuola 
Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa, Italy
<mailto:hannaford at ee.washington.edu>Prof. Blake Hannaford, 
Biorobotics Laboratory, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
<mailto:takanisi at waseda.jp>Prof. Atsuo Takanishi, Dept. of Mechanical 
Engineering, Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan

Topics and details can be found in the Call for Papers that can be 
downloaded from

The important dates are:

October 1, 2006:		Call for Papers
January 31, 2007:		Deadline for Paper Submission
May 31, 2007:		Completion of First Review
September 30, 2007:		Completion of Final Review
February 2008:		Publication

Regular and short papers for this Special Issue should be submitted 
in the usual way to T-RO (see details in
T-RO considers also multimedia material (typically, videos) 
accompanying the submission of a paper.
