Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate to our full-day workshop 
on "Rehabilitation Robotics and Human-Robot Interaction", which will be 
held on Tuesday May 26, from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM at ICRA2015, at the 
Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington, USA . Please 
find the abstract below.

Online program: http://horc.engineering.asu.edu/HORC/ICRA15Workshop.html

The workshop will host a poster session of approximately 20 posters. The 
poster presenters will be given the opportunity for a 3-minute pitch 
presentation of their research, in addition to 1 hour of poster 
To participate, please submit a 1-page abstract via email to:
Panagiotis Artemiadis: panagiotis.artemiadis at asu.edu

Please use the typical IEEE conference format, available here:
The submissions will undergo a review by the organizers to assess the 
quality and relevance to the workshop.

Submission deadline: March 15, 2015
Acceptance notification: March 30, 2015

The demand for motor rehabilitation is growing apace with the graying of 
the population. The utilization of robotic devices in sensorimotor 
rehabilitation therapy has received increased attention during the last 
decade. Despite the growing interest in using robotic devices for 
rehabilitation of sensorimotor function, their widespread use remains 
somewhat limited by a number of factors, including the assessment of the 
true cost-to-benefit ratio relative to other types of rehabilitation 
approaches and parameters that would optimize their long-term efficacy. 
The goal of this workshop is to cover the recent advancements in 
rehabilitation robotics and human-robot physical interaction, from the 
principles used in hardware design to the models used for defining the 
therapeutic protocols. A poster session will encourage student 
participation and allow informal interaction. Moreover, we will define 
the challenges of the field and come up with a list of major future 
endeavors for rehabilitation robotics.

Best regards,
The workshop organizers,
