*** Call for Participation ***

Dear All,

you are cordially invited to participate to the Second Workshop on 
"Advances in tactile sensing and touch-based human-robot interaction", 
to be held in conjunction with the 2012 IEEE/RSJ International 
Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2012) at Vilamoura, 
Portugal, October 11, 2012 (afternoon, room Fenix 3).

The half-day Workshop will feature two invited talks, nine oral 
presentations and seven posters, discussing emerging trends in tactile 
sensing, technological and modeling advances as well as emerging 
industrial exploitation activities.

For more information please visit the WS website at 
http://www.roboskin.eu/index.php/workshop-iros-2012 or send an email to 
fulvio.mastrogiovanni at unige.it

We look forward to see you in Portugal!
