Winter school on rehabilitation robots (2008)


Winter SchoolThis Winter School is primarily addressed to young researchers (PhD and advanced Master students) interested in Rehabilitation Robotics and in the new perspectives in this field provided by the direct link to neuroscience. The participants will get in touch with other young researchers in the field and they will have the opportunity to improve their knowledge through the tutorials given by world-wide known lecturers.

The main goal is that participants improve their knowledge about rehabilitation robotics, learn the analysis techniques and share their experiences with other colleagues that are in the same area. Simulations and practical sessions about design and developments of rehabilitation robots will contribute to this sharing experience.

The Winter School will involve a set of international experts in the field from the clinical, scientific and engineering communities. The list of confirmed lecturers is the following:

  • Eugenio Guglielmelli (Università Campus Bio-Medico, Roma, Italy)
  • Hermano Igo Krebs (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA)
  • Michelle Johnson (Marquette University, USA)
  • Jane Burridge (Univeristy of Shouthampton, UK)
  • William Harwin (University of Reading, UK)
  • Robert Riener (ETH Zürich, Switzerland)
  • Henning Schmidt (Fraunhofer IPK, Germany)
  • Etienne Burdet (Imperial College, UK)
  • Xavier Navarro (Institut de Neurociències, Barcelona, Spain)
  • Maria Chiara Carroza(Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Italy)
  • Sunil K. Agrawal(Univ of Delaware, USA)
