The 2022 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2022) chaired by Professor Ma was successfully held on October 23–27, 2022 at The Kyoto International Conference Center, Kyoto. The theme of IROS 2022 was “Embodied AI for a Symbiotic Society’’. Over 3800 on-site participants (along with 873 online participants) from all over the world attended the conference more than half of whom were young researchers and students. We believe that IROS2022 will have a great impact on their future research!
40th RSJ2022 was held at Tokyo University from September 5th-9th. Six students from our laboratory gave presentation. The conference was divided into various thematic sessions. Through the sessions that were close to our research, we noticed our strength and weaknesses. I strongly felt that I need to improve my ability to think logically and sharpen my presentation skill. This was my first presentation at a conference and a great experience for my future studies.
