Sousse, Tunisia, March 21-23, 2011

Important Dates:
* Deadline for submissions: 1 January 2011
* Notification of acceptance: 5 February 2011

This workshop “Rehabilitation Robotics” will be held in Sousse,
Tunisia, on March 21-23, 2011,
hosted by the CMSM 2011 (Modeling and Simulation of Mechanical
Systems) conference.

Motivation and objectives:

Rehabilitation Robotics has seen a lot of progress recently, with many
new and interesting applications
being developed in parallel by several research groups all over the world.
The primary aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers
working on integrating robotics applications
and rehabilitation and also researchers from other related disciplines
interested in this problem.
The primary target audience of this workshop is robotic researchers
working in medical applications
and rehabilitation, in particular.
Robotic researchers not familiar with rehabilitation and
rehabilitation engineers not aware of robotic applications
can also benefit from this workshop.  the aim is to have a wider
community from both sides, robotics and rehabilitation,
aware of the existing rehabilitation robotics applications.

   * Robotic platforms for functional assessment
   * Machines for lower and\or upper limb rehabilitation
   * Robotic systems for tele-rehabilitation and homecare
   * Physical human-robot interaction control in rehabilitation applications
   * Human-Machine interface in rehabilitation
   * Safety
   * Elderly assistance

Paper contributions should be submitted by email to the organizers
(Program Chairs) at roras2011 at gmail.com
Papers should be in PDF format and prepared following
the CMSM conference style (CMSM'2011 Style ), with a maximum length of 8
