[robotics-worldwide] [Journals] Special Issue - New Materials and Designs for Soft Actuators - Now Open for Submissions

Aslan Miriyev
Dear Colleagues,

I
​am glad
 to invite you to submit your paper
​s​
to the
​"​
Actuators
​"​
journal
​'s ​
Special Issue on New Materials and Designs for Soft Actuators.


The Special Issue will focus on new materials, designs and ​fabrication
methods of soft actuators. The submission is open until September 30, 2018.



For more details, please visit the Special Issue website:
