REHAB 2019 : 5th Workshop on ICTs for improving Patients Rehabilitation Research Techniques
Call For Papers
REHAB 2019 ( http://www.rehab-workshop.org), which will be organized between the 11st-13rd of September 2019, in University of Cauca, Popayán-Colombia.
During the last few years, there has been increasing interest in the application of Virtual Reality and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), in the field of rehabilitation, with clinical results that prove their effectiveness.
