Call for papers for IROS11 Workshop on Robotics for Neurology and 

Full Day Workshop
Friday, September 30th, 2011
San-Francisco, California, USA

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.

For more information, please visit the website of the workshop: 

Submitting Abstracts:
We propose to add 3 or 4 speakers among the invited presenters selected 
(see: http://www.tuat.ac.jp/~venture/iros/program.htm).
These speakers will be selected by the program committee. Before 
submission, intended presenters are welcome to contact the organizers of 
the workshop as soon as possible to verify that planned submission falls 
within the scope.

If you intend to submit a paper:
1. Send the following information asap to:
venture at cc.tuat.ac.jp and fraisse at lirmm.fr and 
Mitsuhiro.Hayashibe at sophia.inria.fr

   * Title of the paper
   * Authors (Name, Institution, email, homepage)
   * Abstract (less than 400 words)

2. Prepare a 2 to 4 pages paper with the IEEE standards
   * Deadline for 2 to 4 pages paper submission: June 20th
   * Notification of acceptance: July  1st

Thank you for your participation,

Best regards

Mistuhiro Hayashibe, Thierry Keller, Philippe Fraisse, Gentiane Venture
