We are glad to invite you to the 14th edition of the IEEE/RAS-EMBS
International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics (ICORR 2015) , the
biannual conference on theoretical and experimental issues in the fields of
Rehabilitation Robotics and neuroscience applied to Healthcare. This year
the conference will be held in Singapore and hosted by Nanyang Technological
University (NTU) on 23rd-28th June 2015.
The ICORR2015 will share the event with ICREATE (International Conference on
REhabilitation and Assistive TEchnology) and SeriousGAMES conferences and
they will run concurrently and in the same convention venue.
The confluence of all stakeholders engineers, physicians, industry,
government, patients, and caregivers will be unique but in line with United
Nations 2012 unanimous decision to make healthcare and rehabilitation a
human right.

ICORR covers several disciplines with both theoretical and experimental
challenges in robotics, control engineering and neuroscience applied to
healthcare. Primary focus is to propose cutting edge solutions to boost the
rehabilitation process, providing robotic assistance to address and speed
motor recovery , trying to unveil the mechanisms underlying brain
plasticity. Profound understanding of how neurological impairments can be
treated reinserting people in the society is the main question we aim to
answer with the purpose of providing the Health System with technological
instruments to assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, rehabilitation
and personal assistance.

The technical program of IEEE ICORR2015 will be single track consisting of
invited talks, special sessions, posters, and paper presentations.
Furthermore for the first time this year a 1-day preconference tutorial will
be organized to introduce the young students in the topic of rehabilitation
robotics and neuromotor recovery.

Papers can cover areas of Rehabilitation Robotics, Haptics, Assistive
technology, behavioral studies and psychophysics :

•        Wearable assistive devices
•        Behavioral Neuroscience
•        Biologically-inspired assistive systems
•        Rehabilitation and assistive robotics
•        Human-machine interaction
•        Neuro-robotics
•        Prosthetic devices
•        Locomotion and manipulation assistance
•        Technology Assessment, Ethical and Social Implications

The venue for the conference is the Nanyang Technological University in
Singapore, one of the most futuristic and dynamic cities of ASIA and all
over the world.
