第36回日本ロボット学会学術講演会

International Sessions (IS)

Background and Purpose of the International Sessions

The 36th annual conference of the Robotics Society of Japan (RSJ) will be held at Chubu University. The conference including more than seven hundred academic or technical presentations from various areas of robotics has many participants from industries, research institutions, and universities. This RSJ annual conference accepts English presentations as well as Japanese presentations. The majority of the conference participants are Japanese. Therefore, presentations and discussions are mostly in Japanese. For researchers whose native language is not Japanese to attend the conference and present their work, the RSJ will organize two international sessions in this annual conference. The official language of the international sessions is English and all participants of these international sessions including presenters, chairpersons, and audiences are required to use English. A conference registration fee will be charged to the participants in the international sessions (the amount depends on your status, such as an RSJ member, non-member, or student). In contrast to other regular/organized sessions, RSJ membership is not required for presenters in the international sessions. Moreover, short papers of a minimum of one page are welcome. Other than the relaxed requirements for the membership and the paper length, the international sessions will be treated in the same way as other regular/organized sessions, namely, papers will be included in the conference DVD and the conference digest.

  3. Abstract
      Robotics and AI are getting more related to each other. In fact, the number of presentations regarding Bayesian models and deep neural networks at international conferences in robotics is increasing. The aim of this session is to provide an opportunity to have fruitful discussions on fusing robotics and AI. We, thus, welcome not only robotics researchers but also AI researchers to this session. In this session, any topic related to robotics and AI will be covered such as perception, recognition, scene analysis, natural language processing, dialog, planning, and human-robot interaction.

 IS2: Special issue on assistive robotics

  1. Organizer
       Tetsunari INAMURA (National Institute of Informatics)

  3. Abstract
       Robotics has a potential to develop innovations in assisting the lives of both healthy and unhealthy persons. This session aims at providing an opportunity for exchanging ideas and sharing practices about assistive robotics across people and research teams. Topics may cover a broad spectrum of assistive robotics, such as basic technologies in mechatronics, control, planning, human behavior recognition, or applications in personal robots, human-robot interaction, rehabilitation, and so on.

 IS3: Robotics, mechatronics and control

  3. Abstract
      This session is for all of robotics-related studies other than those covered by the other international sessions (IS1 and IS2). We welcome researchers from overseas institutes, foreign researchers in Japan, and anyone who wants to present and discuss his/her activities in English. The international sessions accept speakers without an RSJ membership.
