-------------------------------*Scope of the session:*
Investigations at micro and nano scales through robotics have recently
received increasing interest from both industrial and scientific
communities. Such an approach offers the opportunity to design
innovative miniaturized products but also to better understand
phenomenon in a unique and original way. Much of the previous research
in this area proposed proof of concept tools such as actuators, sensors,
gripping principles and tools, control, manipulation, and so on.
However, achieving high performance manipulation, assembly or
characterization tasks at small scales remains a challenge.

The aim of this special session is to provide most recent and original
results showing the successful realization of tasks at the micro or at
the micro scale and related tools and methodologies.  It will notably
target discussions about current most challenging research topics in
this field, such as high transparency teleoperation systems, dexterous
gripping of single objects, collaborative control approaches and
automating tasks to reach high-positioning accuracy, high-quality
feedback to the user, highly repeatable and high-throughput tasks.

*Session topics:*
Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
•    Untethered robotics
•    Tethered robotics
•    Dexterous gripping with or without contact
•    Visual servoing
•    Force control
•    Hybrid force-position control
•    Precision robot calibration
•    Accurate sensor fusion
•    Collaborative control of microrobots
•    Transparent teleoperation for micro and nano manipulation
•    Virtual and augmented reality environ-ments for micro and nano scales
•    Applications to manipulation of:
o    integrated optics, near field probes sensors, nanophotonics, …
o    biological cells, tissue …
o    natural objects such as fibers, grains, …
o    nanotubes, nanolamella, metamaterials, nanofibers
