 The 2018 IEEE Symposium on:

                                        Computational Intelligence in
Robotics Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies (IEEE CIR2AT'2018)


Bengaluru, India, November 18-21, 2018

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

*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,
          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'2018will be held in the framework of the *201**8**IEEE Symposium
Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI

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 2018will 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.
