AAATE Conference 1997: The Fourth European Conference for the Advancement of Assistive Technology
The AAATE Conference is aimed at people working or interested in rehabilitation and assistive technology. It brings together a wide spectrum of experiences and solutions to the wide range of problems in the field of rehabilitation. Different cultural backgrounds, problem-solving traditions and resources are also highlighted. AAATE has a special interest group (SIG-1) in robotics and will hold a special session on robotics at the conference.

Fellowships in Rehab Robotics

R.D. Jackson Fellowships
A limited number of visiting fellowships are available to students and researchers active in the field of rehabilitation robotics and associated assistive technologies. The fellowships are to visit and work at the Applied Science & Engineering Laboratories in Wilmington, Delaware and will last for a period of between six weeks and three months. Fellows will be expected to link their research to one or more areas of interest within the ASEL. Preference given to students and researchers working in European laboratories. Applicants should submit a statement of work (that has been discussed with the organizers) and a travel plan. Scholarship will cover travel to and from the Labs and a small stipend for the duration of the fellowship.
