Dear Roboticist,

the fifth edition of the "Robotics Research Jam Session 
organized by Centro  "E. Piaggio" - University of Pisa with the Advanced 
Robotics Dept. of IIT will be held on July 21, 2015.  Researchers 
belonging to different disciplines of human and robotics sciences will 
meet in a rather casual fashion to exchange research results and ideas.

The program, inspired to the theme /of //Soft Robotics for Natural 
Human-Robot Interaction,/ is available here 
and appended below for convenience.

You are cordially invited to attend (free registration HERE 

With warmest regards

Antonio Bicchi
