The purpose of this new edition of the RoboAssist workshop is to discuss the new technological challenges that affect the development of the existing wearable robot devices such as technologies enabling better sensing and interpretation of human-robot interaction, new controllable actuators enabling a better interaction, and the enhanced computing power enabling complex reasoning and control strategies. 
The purpose of this second part is to gather PhD students and researchers from academia, industry, and different fields related to wearable robotics, to lively discuss, based on the case studies presented by the invited speakers in each session, the current trends, the major advances that have been made as well as new research directions and future challenges in the field of wearable robots.

As continuity of the successful previous editions of this workshop held at Neurotechnix 2013, IEEE/ICRA 2014, IEEE/RAS-EMBS ICORR 2015, and IEEE/RSJ IROS 2016, this workshop proposal would be the fifth edition of RoboAssist Workshops and aims at contributing to discuss the state of the art and the future trends of the use of wearable robotics for motion assistance and rehabilitation.

We welcome prospective participants to submit extended abstracts (up to 2 pages) to be presented as posters. The manuscripts should use the IEEE IROS two-column format. Please submit a PDF copy of your manuscript by email to: samer.mohammed at u-pec.fr <mailto:samer.mohammed at u-pec.fr> by August 15th. Each paper will receive a minimum of two reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance to the workshop topics, contributions, technical clarity, and presentation. Accepted papers require that at least one of the authors to register to the workshop. This workshop is an excellent opportunity to present and discuss your ongoing work and get an early feedback from the participants.
