ICABB conference

Last week we had the very first ICABB conference in gorgeous Venice. The event attracted a fair number of researchers mostly from the field of biorobotics, rehab and biomimetics. There was a large number of Japanese besides the European folks, and probably the most interesting paper they presented was on a tube robot that can be mounted on the shaft of regular endoscopes to facilitate its motion in the high-angle curves of the bowels. You can read more here, under the title "Peristaltic Crawling Robot with Artificial Rubber Muscles Attached to Large Intestine Endoscope". 
Also, we had the CIS tutorial on the first day of the conference, attracting a moderate, but enthusiastic crowd. The presentations were excellent, and you can freely access them on the tutorial website!
