Dear Robotics Colleagues,

The first IEEE International Conference on Soft Robotics
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.robosoft2018.org_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=dzvcK5tbT5HmXJyAFfAQctkzBS98Zy7qgklSZmcwOIM&s=7SOy-S11T6NcXWTZzf78rnhkCG8CTeFgsiczfAfTx0Y&e=> was successfully launched in Livorno, Italy
earlier this year with more than 350 attendees.

This was an exciting event where the top researchers in the field of soft
robotics presented their latest results and discussed the potential of soft
robotics technology to solve the many problems that lie ahead of us.

To help this community grow, the second IEEE International Conference on
Soft Robotics <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.robosoft2019.org_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=dzvcK5tbT5HmXJyAFfAQctkzBS98Zy7qgklSZmcwOIM&s=Q-DoJJmW-LgAtjK_oJLUHrNEQoGtDB19d_WBL4_jBZU&e=> (RoboSoft 2019

The field of soft robotics is a recent and exciting area of robotics
research that challenges traditional robotic designs by using soft
materials and highly deformable structures for building unconventional
robots that are capturing the imagination of the public.

Their high impact in the scientific community and their wide range of
potential application has made this field one of the most dynamic in the
field of robotics.

Given the young and interdisciplinary community working on the field of
soft robotics, RoboSoft 2019 aims at presenting recent progresses in this
field, for discussing new concepts, new technologies and new opportunities
for applications.
