Call for Abstracts

Roessingh Research and Development invites students from all educational degrees (bachelor, master, PhD) to submit abstracts for presentation at our Symposium entitled: “Enabling Technology for Active Life and Better Health”. Every two-years, RRD organizes a Symposium in which national and international speakers are invited to present their latest work in topics of interest bridging academia and healthcare practice.

Abstracts will be peer reviewed and acceptance will be based on content, available space, and overall program balance. All abstracts will be presented as a poster and a selection of the abstracts will give a short pitch, in a session of the program dedicated to this purpose. There will be a Best Poster Award donated by the platinum sponsor: Roessingh Concern.

Topics of interest include:

  1. Movement analysis
  2. Monitoring and Coaching
  3. Supportive technology
  4. Virtual coaches
  5. Bridging technology and Care practice
  6. Gaming in rehabilitation and eHealth
