It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 44th International Symposium on Robotics (ISR2013), which will be held from October 24 to 26, 2013, at the KINTEX in Seoul, Korea.

ISR is an annual Symposium sponsored by International Federation of Robotics (IFR). Since the first ISR in 1970, ISR has been the most authoritative conference, being a principal force for the development of industrial robotics, service robotics and other related technologies.

This year, ISR 2013 held in Korea promises to be the most interesting and remarkable symposium. Korea, where cultural heritage and modern culture are developed with harmony, will provide you an unforgettable experience. Notably, the world best robot festival, ¡°Robot World 2013¡±, will be held concurrently in KINTEX. This event will provide exciting opportunities by bringing together professionals from robot industry, and robot enthusiasts.

The theme of ISR2013, Human-Robot Coexistence, intends to have a harmonious integration of robot and human beings. The significant progress in all aspects of research, development, and application will cover this theme with other relevant events.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to express the warmest welcome to all of you to ISR2013, Korea. I look forward to seeing you in Seoul, Korea!
