Closing Message

Dear Participants,

As the General Chair of ICRA2024, it gives me great pleasure to extend my profound gratitude to all who participated. With the conclusion of the conference, we can now reflect on the extraordinary success we achieved throughout our exciting week together in Yokohama. Your dedication, passion, and contributions were instrumental in making this possible.

I am profoundly grateful to all participants. Aligned with our conference theme, “CONNECT+,” we achieved a record attendance of 7,000 individuals, both in-person and online. Your relentless efforts to advance research and development in our research fields, establish new directions, demonstrate robots, share knowledge, and foster collaborations have been truly inspiring. High-quality discussions, active involvement, and significant contributions from all of you have greatly enhanced the impact and importance of ICRA2024.

I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to our valued partners for their unwavering support and contributions – key elements in making ICRA2024 a resounding achievement. Your invaluable insights, resources, and expertise greatly facilitated the dissemination of knowledge, the translation of research, and the implementation of technology. We are sincerely grateful for your outstanding commitment.

As the host organizer, I hope you enjoyed your time in Yokohama, experiencing both the cultural events at the conference and the rich Japanese culture in the city. These experiences, alongside the insights gained at ICRA2024, are sure to leave a lasting impression. Your participation not only contributed to the success of this conference but also helped to create a vibrant community that will continue to collaborate and innovate into the future.
