The School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering is hosting a two-day workshop covering the multidisciplinary field of rehabilitation robotics and efforts aimed at improving quality of life, including human-robot interaction, bio-inspired robotics and human motor control.
Time is reserved for ASU researchers involved in the areas of motor control, neurorehabilitation, assistive technologies and rehabilitation robotics to participate in group presentations, poster presentations and lab tours.
Important deadline for interested faculty participants: January 15.
For faculty interested in giving a poster presentation, please email a title and abstract to Veronica Santos by January 15.
For faculty interested in giving a lab tour on the Tempe campus on February 23, please email the lab name and location to Panagiotis Artemiadis by January 15.
ASU researchers will be joined by 15 confirmed speakers from top research institutions to discuss advances and challenges in this field. Plenary speakers include one of the pioneers in rehabilitation robotics, Neville Hogan, Sun Jae Professor of Mechanical Engineering and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Henrik Christensen, KUKA Chair of Robotics and director of the Robotics and Intelligent Machines Center at Georgia Tech.
Supported by a grant from Piper Health Solutions, there is no registration fee to attend the event, however attendees must register online in advance.
