Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to announce a special issue in IEEE Transactions on 
Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering on "Lower Extremity 
Exoskeletons for Assistance and Training of Human Gait" to be published
in October 2008. Please contact the special issue editors for a 
tentative title of the paper and authors to make a focussed mailing list.

“Lower Extremity Exoskeletons for Assistance and Training of Human Gait”

Upper extremity devices for training and assistance have a history of 
more than 10 years. However, the field of rehabilitation is now seeing 
new machines and therapeutics for training of the lower extremity, in 
particular, of the human gait. The special theme of this issue is “Lower 
Extremity Exoskeletons and Devices for Assistance and Training of the 
Human Gait”. We invite research papers dealing with robotics, machines, 
and training in this foundational area.
Authors interested in submitting a paper on this topic should notify the 
guest editors at their earliest with a tentative title. The issue will 
have a mix of invited and contributed papers relating to this topic.

The key dates are:
(i) Submission Date: February 1, 2008
(ii) First Review: April 1, 2008
(iii) Final Accepted Papers: June 1, 2008
(iv) Publication Date: October 2008
