Apologies for multiple postings.


Dear Colleagues,

This is to bring your kind attention the "new" submission deadline for the
special session on "Bendable, Stretchable Sensors and Systems" at the IEEE
Sensor 2012 Conference (http://ieee-sensors2012.org/). The submission
deadline has been extended to 21 May 2012 (GMT - 07). 

This special session will focus on the sensors systems with features like
bendability, flexibility, conformability, stretchability etc. of the sensor
systems. These features are considered important for robotic skin - to cover
body parts of various type of robots and to provide feedback through touch
sensing. Recent efforts reported in this direction include
robotic/artificial skin based on flexible PCBs, thin film transistors, and
MEMS based sensors etc. The special session will bring together experts
working on sensors systems with aforementioned features. Interested
contributors from robotic sensors community may submit their abstracts to
the "special session papers" track - including a remark that "the paper be
considered for the special session on Bendable, Stretchable Sensors and
Systems". Further submission details (including the abstract template) are
available at:
http://sensors2012.e-papers.org/ESR/login.php. For any related questions
please write to dahiya at fbk.eu  

A "special journal issue" on the same topic is planned in IEEE Sensor
Journal. Contributors of the special session will have an opportunity to
extend their conference papers for this special journal issue.
