It is our great pleasure to announce you the second International Workshop on Underactuated Grasping (UG2015). It is our aim that this workshop contributes to networking and inspiration for future research regarding underactuated grasping. Underactuation in grasping has quietly progressed from an anecdotical topic and is currently perhaps the most promising source of innovative design in robotic hands. Considering this continuing growth of interest in the research community, it seemed to us the right time to organize a second edition of this workshop in order to bring the people working on this technology together again to share and expand our mutual knowledge.
We, as the organizing committee, are excited to see your enthusiasm and effort to contribute to this workshop and are looking forward to seeing you in Twente next year!
Profs. Lionel Birglen and Just Herder
