Dear Robotics Worldwide Committee,
Can you please circulate the following email to your global member.

This is a call for poster abstracts for this workshop at RoboSoft (Deadline 17 March 2019).
We are delighted to announce a call for posters for the workshop on "Soft Robot Design, Development, and Manufacture - Insights from Industrial Applications" at RoboSoft 2019. In this workshop, we bring together the soft robotic community to talk about design, development, and manufacture from an industrial standpoint.
Please come and join our stimulating discussions in our workshop!

====================================
RoboSoft 2019 Workshop on Soft Robot Design, Development, and Manufacture – Insights from Industrial Applications
Seoul, South Korea --- 14 April 2019 (full-day)
====================================

Introduction
Soft robotics represents a new paradigm in terms of mechanics, control and power supply compared to traditional hard robotics. The potential for these systems is being explored where traditional industrial robots are unsafe for delicate interaction. Many innovative solutions have been developed in recent years to design soft systems; we have seen promising results in the areas of sub-sea manipulation, automation, and rehabilitative robotics. The impact of this technology has the potential to transform our work for the better.
In this workshop, we bring together the soft robotic community to talk about design, development, and manufacture from an industrial standpoint. We draw upon the cumulative knowledge and experience of academia and industry to highlight the future needs and potential applications of soft robotics and the gaps in translating lab-based demonstrations into real-world application. The field of soft robotics is in its infancy, and as we move towards realizing the industrial potential of this technology, we will need new design tools, control and instrumentation paradigms, and manufacturing processes that will allow soft robotics to thrive in the future.
