Call for Papers (deadline extended)

We welcome researchers in the field to submit papers or extended abstracts to be presented as posters. Considering the current situation due to Covid-19, both a 2-minute recorded presentation and a poster are required if the manuscript is accepted. Submitted manuscripts should be up to 2 pages plus references, formatted according to the IEEE conference proceedings template. The submitted contributions will go through a single-blind review process and be selected based on the originality, technical contributions, clarity in presentation, and relevance to the workshop topics. All accepted papers will be published on the workshop website shortly after the IROS 2020 conference. In addition, authors of selected contributions may be invited to submit full-length manuscripts to be included after independent peer-review in a special issue.

To submit the papers:

2-page submission deadline: 01st September 2020 20th September 2020

Notification of Acceptance: 07th September 2020 27th September 2020

The best poster and the best presentation will each be awarded a certificate from UK RAS Strategic Task Group on Soft Robotics.
