One of the starting points for this project was the workshop "Design and Control of Variable Impedance Actuators for Physical Interaction of Robots with Humans and their Environment" organized by consortium members at the Robotics Science and Systems Conference (RSS) in Zurich, 2008. Many thanks to the Conference organizers for the permission of using the RSS logo as a basis for the VIACTORS logo.
