Become a Sponsor or an Exhibitor

CDSR attracts a wide range of researchers in the field of control, dynamic systems, and robotics. As a prominent company in the field of control, dynamic systems, and robotics, we would like to offer you an exhibit at CDSR. Please visit Sponsors for more information.

Symposium

The Organizing Committee has selected the following fields for specialized and focused symposiums under the umbrella of CDSR'17:

  • Intelligent Manufacturing and Automation
  • UAV Systems
  • Control theory: Linear, Nonlinear, Learning, and Adaptive
  • Mechatronics and Robotics
  • Healthcare, Medical, and Assistive Robotics
  • Sensing, Instrumentation, and Measurement
  • 3D printing technologies
  • Human-machine and Human-robot Interaction

If you are interested for your article to be part of the above-mentioned symposiums, please inform us when submitting your article. Symposium articles will go through a regular peer-review process. Accepted symposium articles will be published along with the rest of the accepted manuscripts in the main proceedings. A minimum of 7 articles need to be accepted for each Symposium to go ahead as planned. Should this requirement not be reached, accepted papers will be moved to the main track of the conference in related sessions.

If you would like to propose a symposium other than the ones mentioned above, please submit your proposal to info@cdsr.net. The proposal will be evaluated by the Organizing and Scientific Committees. Upon approval, the Organizing Committee will disseminate the news through the conference website and call for papers. To obtain a high attendance, we kindly ask that the prospective chairs also publicize the event and personally contact researchers who they think will be interested to contribute. The minimum number of registered presenters for the event to take place is 7. Should attendance reach this minimum requirement, registration fees for the Chair will be waived.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@cdsr.net.

Assistive robots can be used as physical, social and cognitive aids to promote independence and improve quality of life. This workshop will introduce the state of the art in Assistive Robotics from the research, design, application, and commercialization perspectives.

Dr. Goldie Nejat will present some of her team's recent research efforts in developing intelligent socially assistive robots for the elderly and their integration into health monitoring, and social and cognitive interventions. The ability of such robots to autonomously provide cognitive and social stimuli, guidance, and support, and serve as general assistance to individuals as well as groups of users will be discussed. Studies conducted during human-robot interaction scenarios with the autonomous human-like assistive robots Brian, Tangy and Casper will also be discussed. This talk will also include demonstrations of the robots developed by the ASBLab (asblab.mie.utoronto.ca) research team at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Ahmadi will talk about the design challenges imposed on medical robotics, state of the physically assistive robotics. A number of key medical and healthcare issues, and how assistive devices can be helpful, will be reviewed. Dr. Ahmadi will highlight the ongoing research projects at the Advanced Biomechatronics and Locomotion Laboratory (ABL) at Carleton University, including general robotic systems development, a virtual gait rehabilitation robot (ViGRR robot), an intelligent robotic mobility system (Solowalk now commercilaized by GaitTronics), and current research on potential of assistive devices in improving human balance capabilities and the role of assistive devices with biofeedback. Finally, the challenges on knowledge mobilization and commercialization in this area will be discussed.

Schedule:

  • 45 minutes for each of the above presentations including Q&A.
  • 30 minutes of interactive panel discussion involving audience which will end with an informal networking among attendees.

The workshop will be held in the afternoon of August 22, 2017. All conference attendees are welcome to attend the workshop free of charge. The registration fee for non-conference attendees will be 113 CAD (HST included). Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation. For registration, please visit: here.
