Scalability and new domains of application of novel fluidic
compliant actuators



This workshop is part of the IEEE RoboSoft 2018 Conference
and aims to be a dialogue about fluid-driven soft robots
between researchers involved in fluid-(soft)structure
interaction and researchers working on soft actuators. We
identified two main topics respectively divided in focused
sub-themes: (1) scalability and (2) application domains.
Scientists who contributed to the development of novel
actuators or to the study of the physics entailed with them
will have the chance to take part in a highly focused and
application-driven discussion on the challenges and future
development of this fascinating and promising field.

Invited speakers:
-Koichi Suzumori, Tokyo Tech
-Francesco Giorgio-Serchi, University of Southampton
-Benny Gamus, Technion
-Herbert Shea, EPFL
-Vito Cacucciolo, EPFL
-Naoki Hosoya, Shibaura Institute of Technology
-Pablo Valdivia y Alvarado, Singapore University of
-Tommaso Ranzani, Boston University
-Stephen Litch, University of Rhode Island
