Dear Roboticist,

as our small tradition since 2011, the Research Centre "E. Piaggio" in 
cooperation with the department of Advanced Robotics of IIT organize the 
annual workshop  "Robotics Research Jam Session 

The fourth edition of this Workshop will be held on July 14, 2014 at the 
School of Engineering in Pisa, where researchers belonging to different 
disciplines of human and robotics sciences will meet in a rather casual 
fashion to exchange research results and ideas.  The workshop this year 
is dedicated to human-robot interaction. The programme is available here 
and is appended below.

You are cordially invited to attend or follow us via streaming 
(instructions will be made available shortly).

With warmest regards

Antonio Bicchi
