Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As you might have noticed, the IROS 2016 (www.iros2016.org) early
registration deadline is August 31. Please register at your earliest
convenience.

The 2016 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems
(IROS 2016) will be held in Daejeon, Korea, during October 9-14, 2016. The
venue for IROS 2016 is the Daejeon Convention Center (DCC). 

Daejeon is the leading city of science and technology in Korea, adjacent to
the Daedeok Innopolis, a large research complex where 20,000 engineering
graduates are working for over 250 research institutes, universities, and
technology companies. It also has many cultural attractions, such as the
Daejeon Culture and Arts Center, the Municipal Museum of Arts, and Baekjae
Cultural Zone. Various attractions and activities, such as making Korean
pottery, ginseng cultivation, and temple stay programs are accessible from
Daejeon.
