It brings together the world’s top academics, researchers, and industry representatives – and we expect more than 5,000 people to attend the 41st ICRA conference in Japan.

The conference is being held at Pacific Convention Plaza Yokohama(PACIFICO Yokohama)between 13 May and 17 May 2024. The event will share the latest research and findings in robotics and automation and will include a range of workshops and tutorial sessions, forums, exhibitions, robot competitions and a range of social events.
