Dear colleagues,

The 2015 prize for Contributions in Soft Robotics is intended to support and promote research that advances the field of soft robotics. In July 2015, an international panel of expert judges will award one entry $5,000. Researchers are invited to submit original work to the Soft Robotics Toolkit website in order to be considered for the award.

Eligible entries might include contributions in:

*         New soft robotics component technologies (actuators, sensors, pumps, valves, control hardware, etc.)

*         New modeling and analysis approaches for compliant electromechanical systems

*         New control architectures (hardware and/or software) for soft robotics systems

*         New experimental procedures for characterizing soft systems

To be considered for the award, entrants must alert the toolkit team of their participation by May 15th 2015, and must document their work on the Soft Robotics Toolkit website before June 15th 2015. For more details on the competition, please see http://softroboticstoolkit.com/contribution-prize

Kind regards,
The Soft Robotics Toolkit team
