ICRA 2012 Workshop on "New design principles and frontiers for wearable robotics"

Dear Colleague,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the workshop on "New design principles and frontiers for wearable robotics", which will be held on May 14, 2012 within the framework of the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.

The workshop primarily targets scientists and engineers active in the field of wearable powered robotics technologies.

Starting from the analysis of case-studies related to upper- and lower-limb wearable robots for functional motion assistance, rehabilitation or augmentation, this workshop aims at identifying major scientific and technological challenges, as well as the breakthroughs still needed to achieve the development of wearable robots endowed with advanced human-robot interaction modalities.

Fifteen experts (for the full list of speakers please visit: https://sites.google.com/site/icra2012wearablerobotics/home) will present selected recent case-studies related to basic enabling technologies or design methodologies. The confirmed speakers are prominent representatives of the different scientific fields contributing to the advancement of wearable robotics, such as: robotics, mechatronics, biomechanics, biomedical and rehabilitation engineering, mechanical engineering, control and system engineering.

Contributions by the experts, conveyed through oral presentations and discussions, will be organized in a public document, intended to serve researchers in the field of wearable robotics as a 5-to-10-year strategic research agenda.

We look forward to meeting you in St. Paul!

Best regards,
