Dear colleagues,
The School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, Arizona State University, is organizing a workshop on Rehabilitation Robotics that will be held in Tempe, AZ, on February 28th and March 1st, 2014. The two-day workshop will include 3 plenary talks, single-track sessions as well as discussion panels, companies’ demonstrations and laboratory tours. 

We are excited to announce 11 confirmed speakers from top research institutions who work in the areas of neuroscience (motor control), physical rehabilitation, rehabilitation robotics, and robotics (software, hardware, etc.). Among these 11 speakers, there will be three plenary speakers: Dr. Antonio Bicchi (UNIPI), Dr. Emilio Bizzi (MIT)  and Dr. Andrew Schwartz (University of Pittsburgh). 

The main theme of the workshop is rehabilitation robotics, however we plan to include a wider range of topics covering the multidisciplinary field of robotics, including human-robot interaction and human motor control. Pioneers of these fields, including university professors, researchers, clinicians, students, and program managers from government agencies, will participate in the workshop. Based on the attendance of the 1st Workshop we organized last year, we expect the number of attendees to exceed 200. You can find more information on the agenda of the workshop, the speakers, and the venue at the workshop website: 

With regard to attendance to the workshop: we are asking attendees to register online – this is important for reserving the appropriate conference room and audio-visuals, as we will not be able to let in attendees without registration. Registration is free of charge.
For people interested in giving a poster presentation, please email the title and abstract to Dr. Panagiotis Artemiadis (panagiotis.artemiadis at asu.edu) by January 15th, 2014.
