Registration is Now Open for

The 8th International Conference on Field and Service Robotics
July 20-22, 2011,
Matsushima, Miyagi, Japan



Field and Service Robotics
is a series of biennial conferences initiated in 1997, Canberra 
Australia. It is a single track conference with specific focuses on 
field and service applications of robotics technology, such as:

  *  Mining, Agriculture and Forestry Robotics
  *  Construction Robots
  *  Search and Rescue Robotics
  *  Cleaning, Floor and Lawn Care Robotics
  *  Security Robotics
  *  Medical and Health Care Robotics
  *  Entertainment Robotics
  *  Autonomous Vehicles for Land, Air and Sea
  *  Planetary Exploration Robots
  *  Intelligent Automobiles

The 8th FSR was originally planned to be held in 2011, but due to 
large-scale earthquakes and tsunami in March 2011, it has been postponed 
to 2012. The conference takes place in Tohoku University, Sendai and 
Hotel Taikanso, Matsushima. The area had relatively minor damages and is 
already back to normal. A special program is organized to feature the 
robotics for disaster response, relief and recovery.

We are happy to announce that there are a number of invited keynote 
talks delivered by internationally recognized technology experts.
