Dear all, The sixth IEEE RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics – BioRob 2016 – 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 BioRob2016 will consist of invited talks, special sessions, posters, and paper presentations. Papers cover areas of Biorobotics and Biomechatronics including:

  • Neuromorphic Engineering
  • Brain Machine Interface/Cognitive Engineering
  • Neuroprosthesis
  • Technology for assisted surgery and diagnosis
  • Biomechatronic and human-centered design
  • Micro/nano technologies in medicine and biology
  • Rehabilitation and assistive robotics
  • Pediatric Rehabilitation: Mobility, Socialization, Developmental milestones
  • Geriatric Rehabilitation: Enhancing balance, Fall prevention
  • Locomotion and manipulation in robots and biological systems
  • Technology Assessment, Ethical and Social Implications of Biorobotics and Biomechatronics
  • Biological systems modelling
  • Biologically-inspired systems
  • Human-machine interactio
  • Neuro-robotics
  • Prosthetic devices
  • Biomechatronic and human-centered design
  • Wearable assistive and augmenting devices

Symposia on Surgical Robotics, Rehabilitation Robotics, and Biomimetic Robotics: Due to the success at BioRob 2012 and BioRob 2014, as part of the BioRob 2016 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).
