Submissions
We seek original contributions on all topics in wearable robotics and call
for the submission of regular technical papers.  Research reports, case
studies, or demonstration projects will be reviewed for relevance to
wearable robotics.  Additional criteria will consider if your submission
adds to existing knowledge or is innovative/cutting edge topic, contributes
to the major content areas of the conference, or promotes interdisciplinary
collaborations.  

Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.  Accepted technical paper
sessions at WeRob2019 will be invited to present as an Oral or a Poster
Presentation. Late breaking abstracts will not be published in IEEE Xplore
but will be distributed with conference proceedings.  

At least one author of the paper must register and attend the symposium in
order to upload a final paper. Full symposium registrations entitle the
registered author for a maximum of 2 papers. Reduced registrations
(including student registrations and single day registrations) entitle the
registered author for a maximum of 1 paper. If you are submitting more than
two contributions you need to complete a new registration for 2 extra
papers.

Authors must register before September 15, 2019. Otherwise, the paper will
be excluded from conference program and proceedings.
