2019 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

December 6-9, 2019 Xiamen, China


IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Robotics Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies (IEEE CIR2AT)

Millions of individuals of all ages experience permanent or temporary sensor, motor or cognitive limitations. The "cost" associated with these disabilities includes not only those incurred through medical and support services, but also less tangible costs, such as those due to lost wages and non-productivity. Computer-based Assistive and Rehabilitation Technologies offer tools, devices, systems and services that can be used to correct, enable, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. As a relieving measure, Assistive Technologies' scope is twofold: at first, to enable a more independent daily life, whether by providing assisted mobility, communication, or health, and either at home, school or work; and secondly, to offer all the benefits of an inclusive participation in the information society, from the more passive web content accessibility to the full participation in social media and all other Internet services. At the same time, as a corrective measure, the goals of Rehabilitation are to eliminate or at least ameliorate life-limiting disabilities and facilitate community re-entry. That is, while restoration of function is the most positive outcome of rehabilitation, compensatory strategies are also employed when the natural functions cannot be fully restored.

The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Click Here to know further guidelines for submission.

This symposium will highlight the latest results from world leading research labs, academia and industry in the fields of Computational Intelligence applied to both Assistive Technology and Robotic Rehabilitation.
