IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering
Special Issue on Wearable Robotics for Motion Assistance and Rehabilitation

Abstract deadline : October 31, 2014
Paper submission deadline: December 31, 2014

This special issue aims to gather researchers from different backgrounds 
to highlight the state of the art, the current and future trends of the 
field of Wearable Robotics for Motion Assistance and Rehabilitation. The 
accepted papers will provide discussions about the challenges and 
limiting factors for developing sustainable wearable robots for 
assistance and rehabilitation of human movements. The special issue aims 
at publishing original, significant and visionary papers describing the 
growing challenges of using novel human-robot multimodal interaction 
paradigms. Research related to novel kinematics and actuation solutions 
for wearable robots will be considered, and also issues related to 
cognitive human robot interactions. The special issue is also about 
understanding the recent trends to promote: energy harvesting, complete 
wearability, portability and reliability of the device, as well as 
user’s safety. Submissions of scientific results from experts in 
academia and industry worldwide are strongly encouraged.

Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
• biosignal processing and applications for wearable robotics;
• neurological disorders and rehabilitation using wearable robots;
• neuro-interface orthotic and prosthetic devices;
• mechatronic artefacts and control of human movements;
• cognitive/physical interaction paradigms for assistive robotics;
• novel kinematics and actuation solutions.

Paper submission and selection:
Interested authors are encouraged to submit one IEEE page A4 abstract to 
the guest editors (emails-below) BY 31 October 2014. After validation by 
guest editors, selected contributors will be asked to submit full 
version paper by 31th of December 2014. All submitted full papers will 
be rigorously reviewed and the selection of papers will be based on 
their originality, timeliness, significance and relevance to the scope 
of the special issue. Submitted papers should not be under consideration 
for publication anywhere else. Information concerning the template can 
be found at the following link:
