Call for Papers

At the beginning of the third millenium, Paris and Evry are proud to extend their hospitality to the international scientific community in the field of assistive technology. For the first time in France and after the sixth conference hosted by Stanford University in USA, the biannual International Conference On Rehabilitation Robotics (ICORR) will be held on April 25-27, 2001, at the "Institut National des TÚlÚcommunications, Evry".

The ICORR'2001 theme is "Integration of Assistive Technology in the Information Age". The goal is to close the gap between high technology and accessibility for people having lost their independence due to the loss of physical and/or cognitive capabilities. Robots and mechatronic devices bring the opportunity to improve the autonomy of disabled people and facilitate their social and professionial integration by assisting them to perform daily living tasks.


Technical topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Communication and learning applications in SCI an CP

- Interface and Internet-based designs
- Issues in human-machine interaction
- Personal robotics
- Hardware and control
- Evaluation methods
- Clinical experience
- Orthotics and prosthetics
- Robotics for older adults
- Service robotics
- Movement physiology and motor control


Authors should submit a camera-ready manuscript electronically in Microsoft WORD, WordPerfect, Rich Text Format (RTF) or Adobe Frame format (PDF). The recommended length of papers is 6 pages; posters summaries and hardware descriptions may be substantially shorter.

Use paper of A4 size, with the following typing area: length: 25 cm (or 10"), and width: 15.6 cm (or 6" 1/8). The recommended typefont is Times. As a second choice, use Garamond.
