Call For Papers

The second IEEE RAS / EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics ā?? BioRob 2008 ā?? is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation ā?? RAS ā?? and Engineering, Medicine, and Biology ā?? 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 ā??biomechatronicā?? 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 diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation and personal assistance.

BioRob is a highly interdisciplinary conference that brings together scientists and engineers from different backgrounds to share and learn about research activities in this fast growing field. The IEEE RAS and EMBS share this vision and thus jointly sponsor this conference.

The technical program of IEEE BioRob2008 will consist of invited talks, special sessions, posters, and paper presentations. Submitted papers must describe original work, in the form of modeling abstractions, algorithms, theoretical analysis, case studies, and experiments. Papers can cover areas of biorobotics including:

Biologically-inspired systems

Biomechatronic systems


Exoskeletons and augmenting devices

Human-machine interaction

Locomotion and manipulation in robots and biological systems

Micro/nano technologies in medicine and biology

Modeling interactions between robots and biological systems



Rehabilitiation and assistive robotics

Surgery and diagnosis

Paper Submissions: Author(s) should submit full papers electronically in double column IEEE-compliant PDF format. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will have a choice for oral and/or poster presentations, and will be published in CD-ROM. Posters will be displayed throughout the conference and Poster Sessions will be scheduled for author/audience interaction. Six pages are allowed per paper, and detailed instructions for paper preparation and submission will be available on the conference web site:

Venue: The venue for the conference is FireSky Resort ( This luxurious hotel is a five minute walk to historic Old Town Scottsdale. Camelback Mountain , Taliesan West Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, Desert Botanical Gardens , and more are close by. FireSky is ~9 miles from Arizona State University and ~13 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport .
