This full-day workshop deals with stability analysis and control
design for stability of bilateral teleoperator systems. Stability
analysis of bilateral and multilateral teleoperation systems,
particularly in the presence of communication delays, has become a
topic of intensive research interest over the last decade. As of
today, a number of fundamentally different approaches has been
developed to address the haptic teleoperation system stability problem
in different settings and from different points of view. The specific
results achieved within these approaches are very diverse, and
relationships between these results are often not clear. The goal of
this workshop is to bring together researchers working in the area of
teleoperator systems theory and design, and to create an environment
for exchange of ideas towards development of a more unified and
comprehensive theory of stability of teleoperation systems. The
workshop will include tutorial presentations on different approaches
to stability analysis and control design for stability of
teleoperation systems. The workshop will also feature poster
presentations related to its topic.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS: We invite participants to take the opportunity
to present their recent research on the topic of the workshop in the
form of posters. 1-page proposals for poster presentations should be
submitted to the organizers by e-mail before May 15th, 2017.
