(09/07/20): Announced that IROS 2020 will not be held in-person. The safety and well-being of our participants is our priority. With the continued resurgence of COVID-19 within the State of Nevada, in particular Las Vegas, along with the city’s prohibiting large or even moderately-sized public gatherings, it makes it an impossibility to hold the in-person event as originally planned.

(09/23/20): Announced that IROS 2020 is free with access to every Technical Talk, Plenary and Keynote, over 60 Workshops and Tutorials, the Competitions, and includes publishing of accepted papers in the IROS Proceedings and IEEE XPlore.

This unprecedented offering is made possible thanks to the support and leadership of the Sponsoring Societies: the Robotics Society of Japan (RSJ); the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS); the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES); the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE); and the New Technology Foundation (NTF) in light of COV-19, to share the latest advances in robotics, and to broaden attendance globally.
