Call for Papers of International Sessions in RSJ2014,
The 32nd Annual Conference of the Robotics Society of Japan

Date: Sep. 4 (Thu.) – 6 (Sat.), 2014
Venue: Kyushu Sangyo University
(3-1 Matsukadai 2-chome, Higashi-ku, Fukuoka 813-8503, Japan)
Deadline for paper submission: July 4 (Fri), 2014

* Background and Purpose of the International Sessions *

The 32nd annual conference of the Robotics Society of Japan (RSJ) will
be held at Kyushu Sangyo University. The conference includes more than
seven hundred academic or technical presentations from various areas
of robotics and has many participants from industries, research institutions,
and universities. This RSJ annual conference accepts English presentation
in any general or organized sessions as well as Japanese presentation.
However, majority of the conference participants are Japanese and
presentations and discussions are mostly in Japanese. In order to make
it easier for researchers whose native language is not Japanese to
attend the conference and present their work, the RSJ has been organizing
several 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. Conference registration fee is
charged to the participants in the international sessions this year
(the amount depends on your status, such as 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, your paper will be included in the conference DVD and
the conference digest.

* Paper Submission *

Authors are requested to follow the normal submission procedure and upload
their papers electronically in PDF format through the conference website.
The detailed procedure for submitting a paper is shown below. If you
are not a member of RSJ, please contact Session Organizer to obtain
temporary RSJ ID before paper submission. The fee for one paper submission
is included in the conference registration fee. For more submissions,
extra submission fee (JPY5000/paper) is required.
