RSJ is a member society of Asian Robotics Society Union (ARSU), which will construct the network among researchers in Asia according to the agreement matters of Asian Robotics Society Summit Meeting (ARSSM).

 RSJ, to provide opportunities to join international students, holds the International Robotics Forum for High School Students (IRH) to provide opportunities to learn more about industrial and service robots to high school students. The lectures and explanations throughout the Conference will be given in Japanese but will be simultaneously interpreted into English. The Conference will offer an ideal opportunity for senior high school students from the around the world to communicate with each other through robots.
