Dear Colleagues, We invite you to attend the "IROS Workshop on Robotics 
for Neurology and Rehabilitation" that will be held on September 
30th-9th, 2011, during the International Conference on Intelligent 
Robots and Systems 2011, in San Francisco, USA. http://www.iros2011.org/_

?Workshop overview:_
The recent advances in computational models of the human body, in 
measuring technology and in neuro-stimulation have led to cutting edge 
applications in the field of Neurology and Rehabilitation. Applications 
of Robotics in those fields are now common. However there is still a 
lack of common ground and common knowledge so that these 
interdisciplinary fields find a proper balance.
We propose to bridge a gap between the clinical and robotics aspects in 
order to exchange new ideas and approaches.
This workshop covers at once several aspects of Robotics for neurology 
and rehabilitation: the human body dynamics modeling, the functional 
electrical stimulation, the neuro-muscular modeling as well as the 
clinical development of robotics systems for rehabilitation.

?Workshop confirmed program
_The workshop features the participation of 7 invited speakers and 4 
selected talks.
