The 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (BIOROB 2018) is pleased to announce the Conference Theme, " High Tech Human Touch." The technical program will consist of invited talks, special sessions, posters, and paper presentations.
BIOROB 2018 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.
The conference will be held at the University of Twente in the Netherlands, August 26-29, 2018, and is a joint effort of IEEE Robotics & Automation Society and IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society (EMBS). Visit the conference website for more details: www.biorob2018.org.
