Dear Colleagues,

The BioRob 2008 program is now available online. Please visit: 

There are several highlights of this conference.

A) There is a plenary speaker each day of the conference. The plenary 
speakers this year are:
1) Professor Yoshihiko Nakamura at the Department of 
Mechano-Informatics, University of Tokyo, Japan,
2) Professor Mark Cutkosky from the Department of Mechanical Engineering 
at Stanford University, and
3) Dr. Sriram Subramaniam, Senior Investigator and Chief of the 
Biophysics Section at the National Cancer Institute, NIH.

B) We have three single track mini-symposiums which will feature invited 
presenters whose papers went through the same rigorous review process as 
other regular papers submitted to the conference, before being accepted 
into the mini-symposium. The areas for the mini-symposium are:
1) Cell Manipulation and Interaction,
2) Microrobotic systems for biomedical applications, and
3) Rehabilitation Robotics.

C) Due to the high quality of paper submissions, we are pleased and 
proud to  announce that three Journal Special Issues will result from 
the papers submitted to this conference (after undergoing the journal 
peer-review process), namely in:
1) IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering,
2) Journal of Micro-Nano Mechatronics, and
3) IEEE Transactions on Neural and Rehabilitation Engineering
D) There are three workshops on the first day of the conference in the 
areas of:
1) Surgical Robotics,
2) Wearable lower limb exoskeletons, and
3) Gerontechnology: Solutions for an Aging Society.

See you in Scottsdale, AZ in October!
