Dear Colleagues,

As you might have noticed, 2019 IEEE International Conference on Soft
Robotics (RoboSoft 2019) regular registration deadline is March 20, after
which the registration fees will increase. 
Too many on-site registrations will cause various issues, so we encourage
you to register at your earliest convenience. 

Here are a few highlights and links.

Apart from the technical programs, participants are also cordially invited
to attend various social events, such as the Welcome Reception, Banquet and
Farewell Party with Award Ceremony etc. 

Sebitseom (Banquet Place): It is a cultural complex built to be a landmark
on the Han River in the heart of downtown Seoul, a place where you can enjoy
special cultural contents at the water’s edge. It is the world’s first
floating structure with buildings that can float on water. Sebitseom
consists of three glowing islands that brighten the Han River gloriously,
along with Yevit, a place that screens a variety of video clips and
contents. It symbolizes the life of Seoul citizens and illuminates Seoul and
the Han River. Chavit is, like the sun rising in the east, a glorious light
that opens up a vibrant day. Solvit rises to the top and illuminates all
directions like the sun at noon. Gavit shines beautifully and elegantly as
it, like the sunset, puts the crowning glory on the day. The media art
gallery Yevit will be a venue for art like the delicate moonlight
illuminating the night.

We are looking forward to seeing many of you soon in Seoul.
