Call for Papers - Springer Journal of "Robotics and Biomimetics"

Special Issue on Medical Robotics
Deadline for Paper Submission: June 30, 2014


Robotics and Biomimetics is a high-quality journal that publishes original
theoretical and experimental work in Robotics and Biomimetics. Robotics,
traditionally as an interdisciplinary area of engineering areas, has been
rapidly growing since the 1970s. In recent years, biological science is
bringing new breakthroughs in robotics science and technology, which in
turn bring benefits to biomedicine.

Interactions between robotics and biology involve two aspects. On one hand,
biological ideas and phenomena are inspiring innovations in every technical
area in robotics including mechanisms, actuation, sensing, control, etc. On
the other hand, applying robotics technology to biology and medicine is
significantly contributing to new understandings of biological systems, and
new methodologies in the field of medical robotics.

This special issue will focus on the recent advancements in medical
robotics and its associated leveraging areas. The main topics include, but
are not limited to:

- Rehabilitation Robotics
- Surgical Robotics
- Image-Guided Therapy
- Interventional Devices
- Human-in-the-loop System
- Computer-Assisted Surgery
- Tele-medicine
- Health monitoring
- Multi-modal sensor fusion
- Human-Robot Interactions
- Soft Medical Robotics
- Multi-modal sensor fusion
- Artificial Intelligence in Medical Robotics

Submission Information:
