IEEE-RAS Humanoids´2014 conference will be held in Madrid, Spain, during 
November 18th-20th, 2014. It will follow the previous ones in Atlanta, 
USA (2013), and Osaka, Japan (2012). The conference theme "Humans and 
Robots Face-to-Face" confirms the growing interest in the field of 
human-humanoid interaction and cooperation, especially during daily life 
activities in real environments. The conference's new scopes will help 
focus on the next generation of humanoids. While Madrid, founded in the 
9th century, possesses a modern infrastructure, it has preserved the 
look and feel of its historic neighborhoods and streets. Madrid's museum 
triangle makes it unique for world cultural heritage. It is the 10th 
most livable city in the world according to the 2010 Monocle index. The 
venue will be the Hotel Melia located in the city center with excellent 
access.

The Welcome Reception will be held on November 18th 2014 in the 
"Santiago Bernabeu" Stadium, the official headquarter of Real Madrid 
football team with 90.000 seats. The conference Banquet will be 
celebrated in "Casino de Madrid" on November 19th, an impressive 
neobaroque building with a huge paintings and sculptures heritage. The 
Farewell Party will take place in the Hotel Melia Castilla, the 
conference venue.
