[:en]Dear colleagues,

Call for Papers of International Session in RSJ2012,

The 30th Annual Conference of the Robotics Society of Japan

1.Background and Purpose of the International Sessions

The 30th annual conference of the Robotics Society of Japan (RSJ) will be held at Sapporo Convention Center.

Papers are welcome from various areas of robotics. The conference has many participants from industries,

research institutions and universities.

This RSJ annual conference accepts not only Japanese but also English presentation in any general or

organized sessions. Majority of the conference participants are however Japanese and presentations and

discussions are mostly in Japanese. In order to make it easier for English speakers to present and discuss

their works, the RSJ has been organizing several international sessions in this annual conference.

The official language of the international sessions is English and all participants including presenters,

chairpersons, and audiences are required to use English.

We do not charge any fee for participating the international sessions. The cost for presenting papers in

the international sessions and participating these international sessions is totally FREE.

Please note, however, that the conference DVD and the conference digest (conference kit) are NOT provided to

the participants of the international sessions. If you need the conference kit, you have to pay a conference

registration fee (the amount depends on your status, such as RSJ member, non-member, or student).

Also note that you have to pay the conference registration fee to attend other sessions which is NOT arranged

as an international session.
