Focus Issue on 4D Materials and Systems + Soft Robotics
The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 4DMS+SoRo: 4D Materials & Systems + Soft Robotics Symposium that took place during PRiME 2020.
This focus issue accepts submissions on all aspects of additive manufacturing (3D and 4D printing) of solid state materials and systems with a focus on soft robotics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, innovative technologies and materials, materials processing, energy storage, batteries, energy harvesting, power transmission, electronic displays, artificial intelligence, sensors and actuators for soft robotics, etc.
Focus issue submissions are open to all authors including authors presenting during PRiME 2020.
Contributors to this focus issue from PRiME 2020 are also encouraged to submit a paper to ECS Transactions as a precursor to the journal submission. Submissions are due no later than August 7, 2020.
Accepting Submissions: November 5, 2020 | Submission Deadline: February 3, 2021
(At the time of submission, indicate that the paper is intended for the 4D Materials and Systems + Soft Robotics focus issue.)
