=====================================================================

If robots are to perform everyday tasks in the real world, they will need
sophisticated tactile sensing. The tactile data must be integrated into
multi-sensory representations that support exploration, manipulation, and
other tasks.

This workshop asks the following questions:

   -

   What kinds of tactile technologies are currently available, and what are
   needed?
   -

   What type of representations are best for capturing and exploiting
   tactile data?
   -

   How can tactile information be combined with other information to
   support specific tasks?
   -

   Can learning help to provide suitable representations from
   high-dimensional sensory data?

This workshop will bring together experts from the fields of tactile
sensing, sensor design, manipulation, and machine learning. We expect that
the pairing of theoretical and applied knowledge will lead to an
interesting exchange of ideas and stimulate an open discussion about the
goals and challenges of tactile sensing.

We welcome submissions in, but not limited to, the following topics:

   -

   Grasping, manipulation and in-hand manipulation with tactile data
   -

   Hardware design of tactile sensors
   -

   Learning approaches for tactile sensing
   -

   Challenges in control with contacts
   -

   Force sensing
   -

   Haptic perception
   -

   Active touch
   -

   Whole-arm / Whole-body artificial skin
   -

   Whole-body planning with contacts
   -

   Multiple sensory modalities

July 15, 2017  -  Workshop

Submission : Papers
The workshop aims to encourage meaningful discussions about various
relevant topics in these fields, and therefore, both unpublished work and
recently published (or under review) materials could be accepted for
presentation. Our criteria of acceptance depend on the significance and
contributions of the participants’ research work as well as the relevance
to the workshop theme.

We solicit contributions in the form of extended abstracts (min 2 pages, max
4 pages) in RSS paper format (available here
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.roboticsconference.org_docs_paper-2Dtemplate-2Dlatex.tar.gz&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=nTX9CPB_CMRstOn9tCe3hOz61zRnuliYKR5HoKgENkI&s=w_6NuPg3i7KeV3_Ri6odCGm5Yx4wtWH7wcURGnPliFw&e= >), to
be presented at the workshop as posters. Outstanding contributions may be
selected for oral presentations.

Submission : Demos

We invite you to show a demo of your recent work relevant to the workshop
theme. In order to participate, please send a 1-page description of the
demo in PDF format. Optionally, a link to a video can be included. Please
include in your description the basic requirements such as screens, plugs,
and desks. Note, a demo could either be a stand-alone submission or could
accompany a paper submission.

To submit your contribution (paper and/or demo), please email a single PDF
file (optionally with a link to a video) to [hidden email] by June
1st, 2017. Accepted papers and eventual supplementary material will be made
available on the workshop website (here
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sites.google.com_view_rss17ts_accepted-2Dpapers&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=nTX9CPB_CMRstOn9tCe3hOz61zRnuliYKR5HoKgENkI&s=N0iFIYElGQHWlfbAA1EvGIZo7nnqN8clMlOQkgJuYq0&e= >). However, this
does not constitute an archival publication and no formal workshop
proceedings will be made available, meaning contributors are free to
publish their work in archival journals or conferences.
