Ranking & Metrics Impact Score is a novel metric devised to rank conferences based on the number of contributing the best scientists in addition to the h-index estimated from the scientific papers published by the best scientists. See more details on our methodology page.

Research Impact Score: 0.50
Contributing Best Scientists: 2
H5-index:
Papers published by Best Scientists 3
Research Ranking (Medicine) 66

Overview

Top Research Topics at International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics?

  • Simulation (48.82%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (37.03%)
  • Rehabilitation (22.41%)

The conference facilitates discussions on Simulation, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Rehabilitation, Robot and Artificial intelligence. The presented research on Simulation deals specifically with Torque but it also addresses topics in Actuator. Topics in Physical medicine and rehabilitation were tackled in line with various other fields like Work (physics), Task (project management) and Rehabilitation robotics.

Neurorehabilitation is a key component of Rehabilitation research discussed in the event. Some problems in Robot that were presented in it overlapped with concepts under Control engineering, Haptic technology and Human–computer interaction. The conference focused on Control engineering research but expanded to cover Control theory.

It links adjacent topics like Artificial intelligence with Computer vision. Exoskeleton research presented is mostly focused on the subject of Powered exoskeleton. International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics features studies on Gait (human), including topics such as Gait training.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Defining socially assistive robotics (578 citations)
  • An EMG-controlled exoskeleton for hand rehabilitation (174 citations)
  • An EMG-position controlled system for an active ankle-foot prosthesis: an initial experimental study (152 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics:

The most cited papers explore disciplines such as Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Simulation, Rehabilitation, Robot and Gait (human). While the published articles focused on Rehabilitation, they were also able to explore topics like Work (physics), Software, Robotics and Artificial intelligence. Control engineering, User interface and Pneumatic actuator, Actuator are some topics wherein Robot research discussed in the conference papers has an impact.

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2019 edition, 0.00% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 0.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 0.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 0.00% of all publications and 100.00% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
