[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] RoboSoft 2019: Call for Papers

Dear Robotics Colleagues,


The  <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.robosoft2018.org_&d=DwICAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=gNidL2XCOE_l3NrudXnYEAVLovMqk7CaDyxH8pyWiw0&s=ajMZryLUCEp4zMkkAJfCxM-6FOn7zTYZxKgyhNYutHM&e=> first IEEE International Conference on
Soft Robotics was successfully launched in Livorno, Italy earlier this year
with more than 350 attendees.

This was an exciting event where the top researchers in the field of soft
robotics presented their latest results and discussed the potential of soft
robotics technology to solve the many problems that lie ahead of us.

Korea, on April 14~18, 2019.  


The field of soft robotics is a recent and exciting area of robotics
research that challenges traditional robotic designs by using soft materials
and highly deformable structures for building unconventional robots that are
capturing the imagination of the public.

Their high impact in the scientific community and their wide range of
potential application has made this field one of the most dynamic in the
field of robotics.

Given the young and interdisciplinary community working on the field of soft
robotics, RoboSoft 2019 aims at presenting recent progresses in this field,
for discussing new concepts, new technologies and new opportunities for
