IEEE/RSJ International Workshop at IROS 2019
RoboTac 2019: New Advances in Tactile Sensation, Perception, and Learning in Robotics:
Emerging Materials and Technologies for Manipulation

Monday, November 4th, 2019, Macao, China
 Workshop URL: https://robotac19.aau.at/

 Paper Submission guidelines:

We welcome submissions regarding any robotics application where tactile sensing modalities are used. As we aim to encourage meaningful discussion in the tactile perception and learning domain, work that is unpublished, recently published or under review can be accepted for presentation depending on the novelty, significance and contributions of the work to the workshop theme.
For further information please visit  https://robotac19.aau.at/.

 Award: The outstanding posters and demos will receive awards from the BMW research, AI and Robotics Center of Excellence.
