News regarding IEEE-ROBIO2020:

After intensive discussions between the IEEE-ROBIO 2020 Organizing Committee and the Steering Committee of the IEEE-ROBIO, we decided to postpone the IEEE-ROBIO 2020 conference to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the new conference dates have not been confirmed, the March 2021 has been considered. The final decision on the conference dates will be made in the September 2020. Please stay tuned.

In accordance with the new conference dates the submission deadlines for conference papers will also be postponed. We will make sure the authors have sufficient time to prepare and submit their papers. The submission site is currently deactivated until new deadlines have been decided. We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may bring to you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

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-, and macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation, and personal assistance.

Major Conference Themes

The technical program of IEEE BioRob2020 will include invited talks, contributed paper sessions, workshops and tutorials, contributed posters, late breaking results poster sessions, continuing medical credits (CME), exhibitions, and more.

Papers can cover areas of Biorobotics and Biomechatronics, including:

Robotics and Rehabilitation

Biologically Inspired Robotics

Robotic Surgery

Human Machine Interaction

Wearable Technologies

Brain Machine Interface

Robotics in Ageing

Robotic Companions and Home Care

Human Augmentation

Micro Robotics

Nano Robotics

The main purpose of this conference is to discuss frontier research and realistic applications on cyborg- and bionic systems, which are concerned with hybrid fusion techniques for organic and biomechatronic body parts. Of central interest is the integration of artifacts and technologies like biomorphic actuators and sensors into an effective biocybernetic system. CBS 2020 is sponsored by the IEEE-RAS TC on Cyborgs and Bionic Systems. One of the primary goal is to make an organism restored or enhanced beyond its original biological characteristics. With the rapid development of bionic technologies, biomorphic chips and nanotechnology, we think that cyborgs and bionic systems can assist humans to conquer many limitations such as disease, disabilities, speed, strength, dexterity as well as intelligence. In addition, understanding neural principles, spiking circuits as well as brains and modeling of the functionality of artificial brains linked to sensors, actuators and robots and to organic natural bodies are further topic of interest. Biomorphic chips, spiking neural computation and its underlying learning methodologies form the basic IT-substrate for cyborgs.
