The forthcoming IROS 2021 conference aims at creating opportunities to meet, discuss, and become familiar with the most recent advances in the field of robotics, autonomous and intelligent systems, human-compliant robots, medical robotics, and many more. IROS 2021, as ever before, will include a large robotic exhibition as an essential part of the event.

The event is to be held at the new O2 Universum convention center located at the edge of the historic center of Prague. An ideal place to gather new findings an d ideas, discuss across the robotic community, while having an opportunity to enjoy comfortable historical and cultural places, or local cuisine just around the corner.

We do hope that the current situation with COVID-19 will come under control and will not substantially affect IROS 2021. Currently, the event is designed as an in-person meeting with extensions providing new hybrid features. At the same time, we are carefully observing and evaluating the situation to indicate any needs to adjust IROS 2021 to current conditions.
