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 2016 Edition will be held 26-29 June 2016 in Singapore.
New Final Extension:
To address many requests we have received for an extension due to busy schedules, we are delighted to be able to extend the final deadline one last time by more than one month to 1 March 2016 for student competition papers and 4 March 2016 for regular papers. Please note that after this date we will not be able to accommodate any further extensions.
Late Breaking Announcement:
STUDENT PAPER AND POSTER COMPETITION
IEEE BioRob 2016 announces an exciting student paper and poster competition. There will be 3 major awards and 7 consolation prizes awarded to 7 students and post-doctoral fellows. The awardees will receive cash prizes, financial support for participating in the conference, as well as academic recognition to be publicized through the sponsoring IEEE EMBS and RAS societies.
Deadline for submission of student papers has been extended to 1 March 2016. Submitted papers will be judged and finalists announced before the conference, and awards will be given out at the Conference.
