he third IEEE/RAS-EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics – BioRob 2010 – is a joint eort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation – RAS – and Engineering, Medicine, and Biology – EMBS.

BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a “biomechatronic” point of view, trying to understand the scientic and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems, for many dierent applications; and to develop novel nano-, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation and personal assistance.

BioRob is a highly interdisciplinary conference that brings together scientists and engineers from dierent backgrounds to share and learn about research activities in this fast growing eld. The IEEE RAS and EMBS share this vision and thus jointly sponsor this conference.
