[robotics-worldwide] [journals] CFP <Submission deadline extended>: IEEE RA-L Special Issue on "Human Cooperative Wearable Robotic Systems"

Fei Chen-2
Submission deadline is extended to May 24th 2017 PST due to a number of requests from authors

Dear colleagues,

You are invited to submit relevant manuscripts for a special issue on "Human Cooperative Wearable Robotic Systems" in IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters (RA-L).


All the submissions should present original works under the RA-L terms. As a joint event with the ICARM 2017, authors from all accepted special issue papers are cordially invited to participate in the special session "Human Cooperative Wearable Robotics" of the ICARM

2017 conference at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ieee-2Darm.org_index.php_special-2Dsession_&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=NwkUa6qsbu735VOnNx7AmK8iYfTh-W-yCAfw3J5tnAc&s=Z-d7oW4lnHyFXVNwEwRWTy8RBTf3l6D8AXtFVDMl8y4&e= . Rejected papers by RA-L letter are possible to be accepted by the IEEE ICARM 2017 after necessary revisions as well, and will be presented in the same special session. For more information about the special issue and conference, please refer to https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ieee-2Darm.org&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=NwkUa6qsbu735VOnNx7AmK8iYfTh-W-yCAfw3J5tnAc&s=Pb6vGt8QQPSxSnmlA7SHiIb-MwBD6mW9h3h5R7meseI&e=  and the submission link at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ieee-2Dras.org_publications_ra-2Dl_special-2Dissues_human-2Dcooperative-2Dwearable-2D

*****Introduction*****
Intelligent techniques foster the dissemination of new discoveries and novel technologies that advance the ability of robotics to assist and support humans. Intelligent robots aim to understand the increasingly coupled relationships between human and machine. With the increasing trend towards home service and health care, we are faced with a need for improved control systems of human-centered assistive and rehabilitation robots capable of performing in the unstructured environments. Although big progress has been made in the recent years, there are still open issues due to the limitation in technology, but also the insufficient knowledge about the human.

The special issue addresses a broad spectrum of topics within wearable robotics. Special attention should be given to the integration of robotics with intelligent control technology, cognitive science and bio-mechatronics systems with the goal of developing new multi-dimensional robotic services. This includes mechanism modeling and design, model identification and intelligent control, cognitive computing, biological signal processing, neural impedance adaptation, tele-operation and tele-manipulation, robot learning from human demonstration and cognitive modeling for human-robot interaction or collaboration. The special issue publishes original papers of innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and improvements, and novel applications and business models relevant to the field of human robot interaction.

*****Relevant topics*****
Design, modeling and control of wearable robots and exoskeletons
Novel development of human-in-loop cooperative robotic/mechatronics systems and applications
Impedance control and shared control for human robot cooperation
Intelligent control of prosthetic robots for the disabled
Biological signal processing, modeling and control
Development of bio-mechatronic systems for human-centered intelligent robots
Robotic tele-operation and tele-manipulation
Neuro-robotics for innovative computation and control
Human motion understanding, intention estimation and sensorimotor learning
Motivation and Endorsements
