FULL-DAY Workshop – October 5, 2023 – Detroit, MI, USA
Robotic leg prostheses have evolved from devices tethered to a power supply and a desktop computer to self-contained devices with onboard electronics and batteries. Powered leg prostheses are now able to assist during walking, ambulation on stairs and ramps, and sit-stand transitions. However, there are significant challenges that the field needs to address for powered prostheses to fully realize their potential.
This workshop will focus on the state-of-the-art and open challenges in powered prosthetics. Top researchers in the field will present their current and future approaches to designing and controlling powered prostheses. Live demonstration of robotic leg prostheses will provide hands-on experience with leading technology. Poster sessions and panel discussions will provide further opportunities for participants to interact. This workshop will allow both established researchers and those new to the field of robotic prostheses, to experience where the field is today and what challenges lie ahead.
CALL For Contributions
We welcome prospective participants to submit a one-page abstract (video attachment is highly encouraged) to be presented at the workshop during the poster session with an associated demonstration if desired. Contributions will be selected based on their originality, relevance, and technical clarity while prioritizing inclusivity. Contributions should be submitted by email to email@example.com Submission deadline: August 21st, 2023, Notification of acceptance: August 30th, 2023
