The UK’s independent authority on slip resistance

RehabWeek 2019, 24-28 June 2019 in Toronto

“For scheduling reasons, we will not be able to extend the workshop submission deadline, and it’s hence important that all members are aware of it. Also, we highly recommend that those who are planning to submit a workshop already have a look at the submission platform NOW. This will allow you to know what information is needed and prevent last-minute panic attacks five minutes before midnight on October 1st.”

RehabWeek 2019 will take place from 24 – 28 June 2019 in Toronto. As Toronto Rehabilitation Institute-UHN is the hosting institution, they are still looking for participants in all aspects of this exciting conference: from submitting a workshop proposal to becoming a volunteer, from presenting work to meeting delegates from all over the world.

Sophia Yue Li (Strategic Project Manager, Research) is inviting everyone to submit a workshop proposal. RehabWeek accepts workshop proposals about all aspects of Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology. Workshops can for example focus on basic research, technical aspects, regulatory issues, financial questions or clinical application.

The ideal RehabWeek workshop attracts attendees from different backgrounds and is interesting for both engineers and clinicians. It is interactive and includes the audience, for example through discussions or hands-on sessions. Ideal RehabWeek workshops are organized in teams with several speakers/organizers. Workshops not including any aspect of Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology can unfortunately not be accepted. If you wish to present data from a single study, please consider submitting an abstract or paper, rather than a workshop.

Please submit your workshop proposals by October 1, 2018, at the following web page:
