In April 2018, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) held a Robotic
Materials workshop

Washington, DC. This workshop was the second in a series of
interdisciplinary workshops aimed <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__wrm2017.wordpress.com_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rStC00sfV_qVWqlcnmGhKrRoTMim5rLso-FTzVW2NfNyo&m=IQcIdrQECrC34n2gVBeiSwqMH3P6skQpTUeEGK96zP0&s=JUG6CjLrtDMKIM6vU8H2bhbN3CO2gnUZGH4ylvBDcn4&e=> at
transforming our notion of materials to become “robotic”, that is have the
ability to sense and impact their environment. Robotic materials has the
potential to constitute a new material age in which man-made materials that
mimic the complexity of biological tissue that includes muscles, nerves,
and vascular systems become common place. The workshop report has been
published here

Also, this week, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced their
Designing
Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer our Future (DMREF)

 program solicitation, which specifically calls out robotic materials.

All DMREF awards will be four years in duration. Awards are expected to
range from $1,000,000 to $1,750,000. The submission window dates are
January 28, 2019 – February 04, 2019. See the full solicitation here
