We solicit the submission of abstracts for a Demo Competition that will be held during the unconference. The demo competition will provide a great platform to present your work.
The aim of the Demo Competition will be to highlight new perspectives and applications in the field of rehabilitation robotics. We’d like to give an overview of the future of this field, both from the technical solutions and clinical applications point of view.
To submit for a potential demonstration at the unconference, send your one-page contribution to EMBC2012UnconferenceDemoCompetition@srh-mal.net. Contributions are due August 15 (extended)!
Authors are encouraged to submit a video, together with the contribution, for increased visibility. If you are submitting a video, please upload it to YouTube and send us a link. All submitted abstracts and videos will be posted on the unconference website.
The most impressive abstract will be selected for a demo presentation.
The session will be organized using the speed geeking format. Attendees will be divided in groups. Each group will have about 5 minutes to examine each demonstration and discuss with the authors.
You can decide the way you want to make your demonstration!
We encourage you to find the more striking and effective way to show your work. Bring your device at the event or the part of it you believe to be the most representative of the novelty of your work.
Bring a model or a simplified version of your system, a video or a computer simulation showing the functioning of your system.
Be creative and maximize the impact of your work!
