Call for Papers

RO-MAN 2009 will be held in Toyama, Japan, during Sep. 27 to Oct.2, 2009. RO-MAN addresses fundamental issues in coexistence of robots and humans from psychological and philosophical aspects over interaction and communication mechanisms to technological systems and architectures. Authors will have choice of ordinary "oral session" or "interactive oral session" that requires 3min. of plenary talk, poster and exhibition of robots/systems. Toyama city is located in the center of Japan, and surrounded by beautiful nature such as the Japan Sea and Alps. One can travel to the three big cities, Tokyo, Osaka, or Nagoya in only a few hours by JR train. There are international flights to Seoul, Vladivostok, Dalian and Shanghai
