We would like to announce the launch of IROS TV at IROS 2022, from October 23-27, 2022, in Kyoto, Japan.

Partnering with award winning international film and broadcasting company, WebsEdge, IROS TV provides an amazing platform to highlight the latest news and stories, science and technology in intelligent robots and smart machines.

IROS TV is an onsite conference television channel featuring a new episode daily that is screened around the conference venue and online.

The TV shows profile the research of scientists, educators, and practitioners in this thriving field and provide an opportunity to learn about advances in robotics.

Each daily program consists of conference news, interviews and debates and pre-recorded case studies from the international community. WebsEdge will be reaching out to organisations to describe IROS TV and seek their engagement in creating documentary-style reports about their work to feature in the IROS TV programs.

There are a limited number of places available. If you would like to explore having a film in the program, please contact the IROS TV producers: Sally Nelson sally(at)websedge.com

Affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the IROS 2020 and 2021 were successfully held online, so we have not gathered in person for two years. We recognize the importance and value of the onsite meetings, which bring us together to meet physically, especially for newcomers to the IROS community.

The IROS 2022 organizing committee then decided to hold the IROS as a traditional in-person conference. Virtual attendance will also be an option for those who have travel restrictions by their organization or do not feel comfortable participating in large gatherings, with the recognition that the conference cannot be experienced fully while remote.

We will strive to make the in-person event fruitful and memorable while following safety precautions as warranted.
