LOCATION/VENUE
ETH Zurich is one of the most prestigious scientific and technical universities in the world. It provides an ideal environment for education and research. Since 2003 ETH Zurich has been steadily developing its Science City university campus on the Hönggerberg site, where the conference will take place.

HOSTS
The ICORR 2011 will be organized in the frame of the Rehab Week Zurich 2011, www.rehabweekzurich.com, which will take place at ETH Zurich from June 27 to July 1, 2011 combining three events:
-- ICORR 2011 International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics, June 29 - July 1
-- INRS 2011 International Neurorehabilitation Symposium, June 27 - June 29
-- ICVR 2011 International Conference on Virtual Rehabilitation, June 27 - June 29 

SPECIAL SESSIONS AND WORKSHOPS
Workshops and special sessions on the scientific topics and beyond are solicited, e.g. the standardization of assessments in rehabilitation robotics. Proposals for workshops should be submitted to icorr2011 at rehabweekzurich.com and will be evaluated by the scientific committee.

EXHIBITION/INTERACTIVE DEMOS
Leading institutions, manufacturers and distributors can use this unique platform to demonstrate their research prototypes and products. Contact icorr2011 at rehabweekzurich.com for further information.
