Register now for upcoming RAS Seasonal School on “Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies Based on Soft Robotics”

IEEE RAS Seasonal School on Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies Based on Soft Robotics

Location: virtually from 14- 18 of June 2021

The Seasonal School is one of the Technical Education Programs (TEPs) sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society in 2021. It aims to provide:

  *   Technical knowledge of engineering processes for designing, developing and validating robotic systems for rehabilitation and assistance;
  *   Technical knowledge of engineering processes for designing, developing and validating soft robotic systems;
  *   Practical experience of shared (medical/engineer) design process of robotic systems for rehabilitation and assistive devices;
  *   Knowledge of expected rehabilitation and assistance from the medical side.

World-class experts in various related disciplines will deliver plenary talks and will organize hands-on workshops.
We are looking forward to welcoming you virtually in June 2021!
Prospective applicants must fill in the Application Form by June 1st, 2021. The admission to the school will be decided upon a selection made by the School’s Advisory Committee.
