The First IEEE-RAS International Conference on Soft Robotics
April 24-28, 2018. Livorno Italy


Soft robotics is a recent exciting trend of robotics, taking the challenge
of using soft materials and deformable structures for building robots, with
high potential for impact in science and in applications. Given the young
and fast growing area and the lively interdisciplinary community that grew
around soft robotics, the RoboSoft international conference aims at
presenting recent progresses in this field, for discussing new science, new
technologies and new opportunities for applications. More detailed
information about the whole conference can be found on:
