The fourth IEEE RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2012 - 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. Biorobotic systems can also be used as powerful experimental platforms for investigations in the biological domain, e.g. for basic research in neuroscience. 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.
BioRob is a highly interdisciplinary conference that brings together scientists and engineers from different backgrounds to share and learn about research activities in this fast growing field.
The IEEE RAS and EMBS share this vision and thus jointly sponsor t his conference.
The technical program of IEEE BioRob2012 will consist of invited talks, special sessions, posters, and paper presentations. Submitted papers must describe original work, in the form of modeling abstractions, algorithms, theoretical analysis, case studies, and experiments. Papers can cover areas of Biorobotics and Biomechatronics including:
· Technology for assisted surgery and diagnosis
· Rehabilitation and assistive robotics
· Micro/nano technologies in medicine and biology
· Prosthetic devices
· Wearable assistive and augmenting devices
· Biological systems modeling
· Biologically-inspired systems
· Biomechatronic and human-centred design
· Human-machine interaction
· Locomotion and manipulation in robots and biological systems
· Technology Assessment, Ethical and Social Implications of Biorobotics and Biomechatronics
