Workshops should present and focalize innovative research on emerging and rapidly developing areas at the intersection between biorobotics and biomechatronics. Tutorials should provide in-depth insights into methodologies and techniques that are bound to enable progress in biorobotics- and biomechatronics-related fields. Proposals should specify how the event engages attendees and encourages interaction with speakers that would not be otherwise possible via regular BioRob sessions.
If an invited speaker/organizer is involved in more than one proposal, this must be noted sorting proposals in descending order of priority. If multiple excellent proposals are received on overlapping topics, acceptance may be conditional to merging proposals into one single event.
Proposals must be submitted via PaperPlaza and must address the following points:
- Type and Duration
- List of speakers
- Intended audience
- Expected attendance
- Why this workshop/tutorial is not expected to be covered by a regular BioRob session
- Details of other workshops/tutorials where organizers/speakers are involved
- Special requests (equipment or other issues)
A Microsoft Word template is available to help structure the proposal. Organizers of accepted proposals will be asked to provide an abstract and a dedicated website for their event. For any question, please email Dr. Massimo Sartori.
