The National Science Foundation (NSF) in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is pleased to announce the first Disability and Rehabilitation Engineering (DARE) Conference on Transformative Opportunities for Modeling in Neurorehabilitation scheduled on 3-4 March 2023. This will be a hybrid event to be held at the University of Southern California. This conference will bring together leading engineers, clinicians, computational scientists, rehabilitation researchers, trainees, and client advocates to discuss the state of the science and identify transformative opportunities for computational modeling to advance neurorehabilitation.
Hosted by the University of Southern California and the University of Washington, this conference has been designed to critically discuss two questions:
1. What can computational modeling do for neurorehabilitation?
2. How can computational modeling improve neurorehabilitation?
How can you participate?
Scientific contribution: Submit a brief abstract (to be considered for both oral and poster sessions)- See instructions here . Due Date January 15th. Since attendance at the workshop is limited, individuals selected for a 10-minute podium or poster presentation will be given priority for registration.
Apply to be a DARE2023 Fellow. Application period: 12/20/2022–1/15/2023. The main goal of the conference is to catalyze a diverse community of Fellows that come together to address the two key questions above. They will receive travel assistance and be invited to co-write a Position Paper. Please see instructions here .
Want to learn more? This conference will bring together experts and trainees from around the world to discuss critical questions, challenges, and opportunities at the intersection of computational modeling and neurorehabilitation. Our mission is to identify the gaps and opportunities for using computational modeling and device design to understand, optimize, and improve neurorehabilitation. This conference will focus on four areas of impact, as described in :
This conference is sponsored by NSF Directorate for Engineering (ENG): the Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems’ (ENG/CBET) Disability and Rehabilitation Engineering (DARE) program and the Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation’s (ENG/CMMI) Biomechanics and Mechanobiology (BMMB) program. This conference is also supported by NIH National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR).
Questions pertaining to this conference should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to your participation in person or virtually.
