Welcome to ACIRS

We are very happy to welcome you to the 2021 6th Asia-Pacific Conference on Intelligent Robot Systems (ACIRS 2021), held in Tokyo, Japan as Virtual Conference, between 16-18 July, 2021, with its workshop ICEET 2021. ACIRS 2021 is co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Robotics & Automation Society, China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) and Beijing Institute of Control Robots and Intelligent Technology. It is a great opportunity to get together and share ideas and knowledge among the Industry experts, researchers and academics. Several current and upcoming frontier technologies, innovative solutions, research results, as well as enterprises related to Intelligent Robot Systems and their applications will be presented.

The ACIRS 2021 is an annual event, addressing researchers and industries from all areas of Intelligent Robot Systems. It provides an international forum for the exchange between those fields, to present advances in the state of the art, identify emerging research topics, and together define the future of these exciting research domains.

This conference will feature excellent speakers, major technical parallel sessions, and invited tracks. We hope 2021 ACIRS will be remarkable and an unforgettable event.

We invite researchers from Intelligent Robot Systems to participate and submit their work to the program. Likewise, any work on AI that has a relation to any of these fields or potential for the usage in any of them is welcome. You are also welcomed to suggest any topic, activity or scientific program you would like to see covered during the conference. Your active contribution will be crucial to the success of the conference and its impact on our global mission.

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads worldwide, taking into account the various circumstances of the participant, ACIRS will adopt all available social media methods, such as online/video presentation, etc, besides the regular presentation styles (oral & poster). The online/video presentation session will be arranged accordingly. Authors who cannot travel to Tokyo due can participate by submitting a recorded presentation and connecting at the time of their session on Zoom.
