Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate and contribute to the 
following full day WORKSHOP at IEEE-RAS Robosoft 2018 on April 24, 2018 
in Livorno, Italy:

***Towards Soft Perceptive Robots: From Robotic and 
Biologically-Inspired Solutions, To Soft Sensing Technologies***

Workshop website: *https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__softperceptiverobots.it_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=lPU-xfzfn7l2HY-MfLJEFBpF6z6e8WLJ6gZwzKWc3EM&s=LDX4NcPMQGXih55-2HGk0CJ4i1CaVagGIZxhTXrEOcs&e= *

Obtaining autonomy and going beyond open-loop controlin soft robotics 
requires integrating sensors within soft-bodied systems to provide 
multiple modes of proprioceptive and exteroceptive feedback. All this is 
highly challenging since the bodies deform and adapt to the exterior 
during movement, leading to a strong interplay among the actuation 
mechanics of soft bodies, the sensing morphology and functionality, and 
the mechanical interaction with the environment. In this workshop, we 
aim to gather scientists from various fields (including material 
science, robotics, biology, and engineering) to discuss bio-inspired 
approaches, robotic strategies and sensing solutions towards the 
development of perceptive soft robots.
_/Topics include:////sensorized soft robots, //biomimetic soft 
locomotion//, embodied sensing//, soft robot control, biomimetic and 
soft tactile sensing//, elastic electronics//, hyperelastic materials 
for mechanical sensing//, 2D/3D printing of soft materials./

We invite attendees to share their research results with DEMOS, 
Young researchers and students and are encouraged to participate.
Last minute works are welcome.
