  Previous Workshops

     The series of workshop on Cybernics began at Amsterdam in March 2008 (invitation only, about 20 scientific presentations and more than 60 participants), and then the second workshop meeting at Tsukuba, Japan, in November 2009 (about 15 scientific presentations and more than 50 participants). We have also organized a workshop in conjunction with IEEE ICRA2009 at Kobe, Japan in May 2009.

     This workshop is organized and supported by the Global Centers of Excellence for Cybernics Program funded by MEXT, Japan (Ministry of education, culture, sports, science and technology, Japan), with the support of the University of Tsukuba.
