Dear colleagues,

The School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, Ira A. Fulton 
Schools of Engineering, Arizona State University, is hosting a workshop 
focusing on Rehabilitation Robotics in Tempe, AZ, on February 8th and 
9th, 2016. The two-day workshop will include 2 plenary talks, 
single-track sessions, poster sessions, as well as industry and clinical 
discussion panels, company 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.) as well as Program Officers from Government 
agencies. Among these 11 speakers, there will be two plenary speakers: 
Dr. Mitsuo Kawato (ATR Computational Neuroscience Labs, Japan) and Dr. 
Michael Goldfarb (Vanderbilt University).

The main theme of the workshop is rehabilitation robotics, however the 
workshop covers a wider range of topics related to the multidisciplinary 
field of robotics, including human-robot interaction and human motor 
control. Based on the attendance of the 3rd 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:

This year the workshop will include two discussion panels:
(1) An industrial panel in which representatives of robotics industries 
(KUKA, ATI, Delsys, Barrett Technology) will discuss current and future 
directions of the industrial spectrum in human interactive robotics, 
including rehabilitation and assistive robotics.
(2) A clinical panel made up of clinicians (Mayo Clinic, Banner Health, 
Swan Rehabilitation) discussing the current needs of the clinical 
community and how best to facilitate translation of rehabilitation 
robotics and technology to the clinic.

Everyone is welcome to attend the workshop and registration is free of 
charge. Space is limited so we do ask that all attendees register in 
advance online 
Advance registration is required to attend.

For people interested in presenting posters, please email the title, 
authors list and a 200-word abstract to Dr. Panagiotis Artemiadis 
(panagiotis.artemiadis at asu.edu) by January 10th, 2016.

The workshop is supported by the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, ASU 
Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, as well as industrial sponsors 
including KUKA, ATI, Brainvision, Delsys and Barrett Technology.
