Call for papers

 

The fifth IEEE RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2014 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.

BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation and personal assistance.

The technical program of IEEE BioRob2014 will consist of invited talks, special sessions, posters, and paper presentations. Papers can cover areas of Biorobotics and Biomechatronics including:

  • Technology for assisted surgery and diagnosis
  • Biomechatronic and human-centered design
  • Micro/nano technologies in medicine and biology
  • Wearable assistive and augmenting devices
  • Biological systems modeling
  • Locomotion and manipulation in robots and biological systems
  • Technology Assessment, Ethical and Social Implications of Biorobotics and Biomechatronics
  • Biologically-inspired systems
  • Rehabilitation and assistive robotics
  • Human-machine interaction
  • Neuro-robotics
  • Prosthetic devices

Symposia on Surgical Robotics, Rehabilitation Robotics, and Biomimetic Robotics: In lieu of the success in BioRob 2012, as part of the BioRob 2014 program, there will also be single tracks symposia on Surgical Robotics, Rehabilitation Robotics, and Biomimetic Robotics. These symposia will comprise invited speakers, regular paper presentations and poster session(s)

The conference welcomes proposals for special sessions, workshops, and tutorials. Detailed instructions for the preparation and submission of papers can be found at www.biorob2014.org.

Venue: The venue for the conference is the Anhembi Convention Center in São Paulo, one of the most vibrant and dynamic cities in the world driving a “brave new emerging world” – Brazil and Latin America. São Paulo, the largest metropolis of South America, is easily accessible from all over the world.
