===== Call for abstracts/posters =====

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to contribute to the ICRA 2017 Full Day Workshop on "Mechanics of Human Locomotion and the Development of Wearable Robotic Systems" to be held at the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), Singapore, May 29, 2017

*** Overview ***

One of the most promising, yet most challenging applications of human-robot interaction is technology that assists with human locomotor performance, such as exoskeletons, and robotic prostheses. These systems have the potential to drastically improve quality of life, but there remain significant gaps in understanding that span robotics, machine learning, and biomechanics, among other fields. These interdisciplinary gaps in knowledge must be addressed before there will be seamless interaction between humans and wearable, assistive machines, that lead to lasting changes in human performance and clinical care. The intent of this workshop is to foster collaboration and discussion regarding current work in the field, and the major technical barriers that must be addressed to reach our goal. We have assembled many of the leading speakers in the areas of biomechanics, wearable robotics, intent recognition, and control. The focus will be on wearable and assistive technologies for the lower extremities, including discussion of biomechanics and dynamics of gait.

*** Author Instruction ***
We invite extended abstracts and short papers of 1-2 pages in the standard IEEE conference format. Please send the submission to hyunglae.lee at asu.edu<mailto:hyunglae.lee at asu.edu> by April 7, 2017. Accepted extended abstracts will be presented at the workshop as posters.

*** Important Dates ***

April 7: Submission deadline

April 22: Notification of acceptance

May 6: Camera-ready abstract

May 29: Workshop (Full-day)

*** Topics of interests ***
Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
-  Human-in-the-loop control of wearable systems
-  Novel sensors and actuators for wearable robots
-  Intent recognition algorithms for gait
-  Biomechanics of locomotion
-  System identification of human joint dynamics
-  Rehabilitation robotics
