Resume & Achievements
History of ICAROB
ICAROB resulted from the AROB-symposium(The International Syposium on Artfifical Life and Robotics)
whose first edition was held in 1996 and the eighteenth and
last edition in 2013. The AROB symposium was annually organized
University and ALife Robotics Corporation Ltd., under the sponsorship of the Science and Technology Policy Bureau, the
Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture (Monbusho), presently,
the Ministry of Education,
Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (Monkasho),
Japanese Government, Japan
Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the Commemorative Organization for the Japan World Exposition ('70), Air
Force Office of Scientific Research, Asian Office of Aerospace Research and
Development (AFOSR/AOARD), USA. I would like to express my sincere thanks to not only Monkasho (annually
fund support from 1996 to 2013) but also JSPS, the Commemorative Organization for the Japan World Exposition ('70), and various other Japanese companies for their repeated support. The
old symposium (this symposium has been held every year at B-Con Plaza, Beppu, Oita, Japan except in Oita, Japan (AROB 5th f00) and in Tokyo, Japan (AROB
6th f01).) was organized by the International Organizing Committee of AROB and was co-operated by the Santa Fe Institute (USA), RSJ, IEEJ, ICASE (Now ICROS) (Korea), CAAI (P. R. China), ISCIE, IEICE,
IEEE (Japan Council), JARA, and SICE. The old AROB-symposium (Editor-in-Chief,
Masanori Sugisaka of Journal of Artificial Life and Robotics (1996~2013)) expanded much by absorbing much new knowledge and technologies
into it. This history and
character of the former AROB symposiums are passed on the current ICAROB
conference and to this journal, International Journal of Robotics, Networking and Artificial Life (JRNAL). From now on, ALife Robotics Corporation Ltd. is in charge of management of both the conference and the journal. The future of the ICAROB is brilliant from a point of view of yielding new technologies to human society in the 21st century. This conference invites you all.
