Geriatronics Summit 2023

Call for Contributions

Important Dates

Submission date:                    June 6, 2023      
Notification of Acceptance:  June 16, 2023

We would like to invite early-career researchers working on topics related to Geriatronics, human-robot interaction, and technology for supporting the care of older adults to submit contributions to the Summit. We are looking for extended abstracts (máx) 4 pages (IEEE two-column Conference format) without references.
The papers will be peer-reviewed (single-blind) for the relevance of content to the workshop and basic quality. The selected extended abstracts and videos will be disseminated and available in this website. Accepted manuscripts will be invited to present a teaser of their work to all participants of the workshop (single-track presentation). The spotlight teasers will be accompanied by posters during the interactive session at the coffee-break.
We would like to especially encourage women and young researchers’ participation, in order to support gender balance in robotics and the promotion of early-career researchers to present themselves to the community.

Best Paper Award - 500 €

With the generous support of Friends of Geriatronics e.V. we are able to offer two best poster awards of each 500€.
