Call For Papers

Millions of individuals of all ages experience permanent or temporary sensor, motor or cognitive limitations. The "cost" associated with these disabilities includes not only those incurred through medical and support services, but also less tangible costs, such as those due to lost wages and non-productivity. Computer-based Assistive and Rehabilitation Technologies offer tools, devices, systems and services that can be used to correct, enable, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. As a relieving measure, Assistive Technologies' scope is twofold: at first, to enable a more independent daily life, whether by providing assisted mobility, communication, or health, and either at home, school or work; and secondly, to offer all the benefits of an inclusive participation in the information society, from the more passive web content accessibility to the full participation in social media and all other Internet services. At the same time, as a corrective measure, the goals of Rehabilitation are to eliminate or at least ameliorate life-limiting disabilities and facilitate community re-entry. That is, while restoration of function is the most positive outcome of rehabilitation, compensatory strategies are also employed when the natural functions cannot be fully restored.

IEEE CIR2AT'2016 will highlight the latest results from world leading research labs, academia and industry in the fields of Computational Intelligence applied to both Assistive Technology and Robotic Rehabilitation.

Topics include but are not limited to:
Assistive Technologies for Persons with Visual Impairment
Assistive Technologies for Hearing enhancement
Augmentative and Alternative Communication systems
Assistive Technologies for Persons with Cognitive Impairment
Assistive technologies for persons with print disabilities
Rehabilitation Robotics and Telemanipulation
Assisting Recovery from Stroke
Technologies to Enhance Mobility and Function for Individuals with Severe Disability (e.g. Spinal Cord Injury, ASL, Muscle Dystrophy, etc.)
Telerehabilitation
Wheelchair Transportation Safety
Wheeled Mobility
School and Workplace Accommodations
Robotic Prosthetic and Orthotics
Technologies for Improving Quality of Daily Living
Recreational Technologies and Exercise Physiology Benefiting Persons with Disabilities

CIR2AT'2016 will be held in the framework of the 2016 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2016) http://ssci2016.cs.surrey.ac.uk/
SSCI is a flagship annual international conference on computational intelligence sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.
All accepted paper will appear in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and indexed by EI, SCOPUS etc.

As a tradition, IEEE SSCI 2016 will co-locate a number of symposiums, each dedicated to a special topic related to computational intelligence, thereby providing a unique platform for promoting cross-fertilization.

SSCI 2016 will be featured by cross-symposium tutorials, keynote speeches, panel discussions, PhD consortia, oral presentations and poster sessions. Student grants, Best paper Awards and Student Best Paper Award will be given.
