Dear colleagues,

We kindly invite you to take part in the workshop "Advances in touch
enabled robotics", taking place on 4 July 2016 as part of Eurohaptics in
London. Participants are encouraged to present their work during the poster
session. The deadline for abstract submission is May 15th.

*Workshop abstract*
While robot manipulators traditionally relied on vision and some force
sensing for control, recent years have seen a surge in new sensors to endow
them with the sense of touch and related applications, as well as a deeper
understanding of touch sensing in humans gained by experiments with
advanced robotic devices. This workshop will present new tools (electronic
skin, multisensory tiles etc.) available for equipping robots with the
sense of touch, illustrates some of the behaviours these novel sensors
enable to implement, and how this permits new ways for robots to interact
with humans.

Ravinder Dahiya (University of Glasgow, UK), Gordon Cheng (Technical
University Munich, Germany) and Etienne Burdet (Imperial College London, UK)
