Travel Awards 2018
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 Robotics Travel Awards, which have been granted to:
Martin Garrad, a PhD Student from Department of Engineering Mathematics, University of Bristol & University of the West of England will attend the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), from May 21–25, 2018, in Brisbane, Australia, to present his paper “Shaping Behaviour with Adaptive Morphology”.
Benjamin Shih, a PhD Student in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Bioinspired Robotics and Design Lab at UC San Diego. His research interests include soft robotics, bioinspiration, and control. Specifically, he focuses on sensing capabilities for soft robots and how they can be applied to soft manipulation. His work will be presented at the IEEE/RAS International Conference on Soft Robotics (RoboSoft) 2018 in Livorno, Italy, from April 24–28, 2018.
It was a difficult decision with such high quality applications for the awards and we would like to thank all applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics. We congratulate the winners for their accomplishments.

Travel Award 2017
On behalf of the Evalution Committee, we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Robotics Travel Award, which has been granted to:
Piyamate Wisanuvej, a PhD Candidate in Medical Robotics at the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Imperial College London. His recent work on single access transanal surgical system is the development of customised master interface for teleoperation of highly flexible surgical instruments. The work was presented in IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2017) in Vancouver, Canada, September 24–28, 2017.
Jinoh Lee, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Humanoid and Humancentered Mechatronics Laboratory, Advanced Robotics Department, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT). His professional is about humanoid robotics and control engineering which include human-like level reactive loco-manipulation and advanced compliant system control for safe human-robot interaction. He will attend 2017 IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots, November 15-17, 2017, Birmingham, UK, to present his paper and to organize a workshop titled, “Can we build Baymax? Part III: Design and Control for Soft Human-Robot Interaction” collaborating with Disney Research, CMU, and AIST.
