[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] BioRob 2018 Workshop on “Novel bioinspired actuator designs for robotics (BioAct)” (deadline extension)

Philipp Beckerle
Dear all,

We would kindly like to invite you to participate in *BioRob 2018* Workshop
on “Novel bioinspired actuator designs for robotics (BioAct)”, which will be
held on “Sunday 26th of August 2018”.

The objective of the workshop is to give an overview of the state of the art
in bioinspired (e.g., compliant) actuation, discuss the practical
implementation of such actuators, and brainstorm how bio-inspiration could
bring these actuators and the robots in which they are implemented to new
levels of versatility, agility, and energy-efficiency. This workshop is
composed of 4 sessions focusing on the following goals:

* Research on biological actuators (what can we learn from biology?)
* Variable impedance actuators and series/parallel compliance and their
relation to biology
* State of the art of engineered actuators mimicking muscle behaviours
* Application of the bioinspired actuators in robots and assistive devices.


For more information about the workshop and updates, please visit the
workshop webpage <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__lauflabor.ifs-2Dtud.de_doku.php-3Fid-3Dhome-3Abioact&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=rgpsvLejeE5aZmw1FG7GuJPm6cvO8HvmNNM8Th9gW4E&s=QGcq-xHgkzyCcqVK57LVzqGZ3Ons3ECjahMSt3RrhPw&e=>

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS:


We will welcome prospective participants to submit extended abstracts (1-2
pages) related to the workshop's topics of interest to be presented as
posters.
An accompanying video is optional and can also be provided as a weblink
(e.g., youtube).
All contributions must be sent as a pdf file to
