Call for Papers
The seventh IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics – Biorob 2018 -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-, and macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation and personal assistance.
Under the theme of High Tech Human Touch, prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality papers and videos presenting original results. The technical program will consist of invited talks, special sessions, interactive sessions, and oral presentations.
Best Conference Papers, Best Student Papers, and Best Demos will be awarded.
Please submit papers via the customary PaperPlaza process, follow the format guidelines, and use the templates available in LaTex and MS Word. Papers should be six pages in length, with up to two extra pages at the cost of $185 per extra page. For further submission instructions, please refer to author instructions page. All papers are reviewed using a single-blind review process: authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers do not know each other’s identities, nor do the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript.
Further details about this will be posted here once the review process is underway.
