With rapidly growing interests in ‘Soft Robot,’ International Journal of Control, Automation, and Systems (IJCAS) is pleased to announce an upcoming Special Issue on Soft Robotics. This Special Issue is intended to address the state-of-art of Soft Robot related researches and the leading researchers in soft robotics are strongly encouraged to submit their contributions to share the past, present, and future directions of soft robotics research as well as to discuss their recent research outcomes. Various important works in soft robotics including sensors, actuators, structures, modeling & control, and fabrication techniques are intended to be addressed.

The special issue publishes original papers of novel discoveries, improvements, and results relevant to the field of Soft Robotics both in theory and applications. Also, priorities will be given to papers reporting original work strongly supported by experimental results and carefully designed studies that can be shared by the research community.

Topics of interest of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
 Soft Robot Modeling & Simulation
 Soft Robot Control
 Soft Sensors & Soft Actuators
 Soft Electronics
 Soft/Flexible Materials & Structures
 Soft Robot & Human Interface
 Soft Robot System
 Soft Robot Applications

To explore possible topics, feel free to contact the guest editors. Accepted papers will be published in the special issue of International Journal of Control, Automation, and Systems (indexed as SCIE), which is scheduled in February 2017. All manuscripts will go through regular review processes of the journal.
