Hello, and thank you for visiting the homepage of the Korean Robotics Society.

The Korean Robotics Society was established on September 9, 2003, with the aim of promoting academic and technological exchanges related to robotics engineering domestically and internationally, fostering academic activities, contributing to the development of industrial technology, and promoting fellowship among members.

The society covers most engineering fields related to robotics, including mechanical, electrical and electronic, industrial, software engineering, and artificial intelligence, and also addresses non-engineering fields such as design, ethics, and entertainment. It is a leading professional society representing robotics in South Korea.

In particular, we operate 16 technical committees and 5 domestic and international branches to support diverse activities of our members domestically and internationally by forming a strong network connecting universities, research institutes, and companies.

The 19th Korean Robotics Conference was successfully held in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province, with approximately 1,600 participants on February 21. The 21st Ubiquitous Robotics International Conference is scheduled to be held in New York, USA on June 24. Additionally, we run Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Summer/Winter Schools during summer and winter vacations.

We are currently undergoing improvements to our homepage and plan to launch regular English homepage services soon. We apologize for any inconvenience. For inquiries, please contact us at [kros@kros.org], and our office is located at 506, Korea Science and Technology Hall, 22, Teheran-ro 7-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.
