We're the young enterprise established on April 18, 2008. I made an effort toward contribution to a local community through research and development of an artificial life and robotics, International Symposiumand Conference on Artificial Life and Robotics the other day.

In 2013, I made a new new middle period plan "ICAROB2014 to which a nickname is changed every below year" (Internatiol Conference on Artificial Life abd Robotics) start. ICAROB is the growth strategy which stood in the medium and long-term view which contemplated Tokyo Olympics in 2021. I'm aiming to achieve continual growth and the high-profit make-up by certain technical power while contemplating a market of a domestic and abroad researcher globally. An individual pursues 1 item set as an active guideline "Our Way" "growth strategy" in the business activity, and I'm working on reformation.

ALife Robotics Corporation Ltd. emphasizes social responsibility of an enterprise (CSR), makes an effort toward social continuous development and contribution to a local community and aims at good company of the future society based on symbiosis with a local community.

Please take care of everybody's further support and cooperation.

"Contract" about publication of Atlantis Press company and Jornal of Robotics, Networking and Artificial Life was exchanged and done.

JRNAL became ESCIjournal. (FYI, the link to Thomson Reuters with JRNAL mentioned: and will evaluate it for potential inclusion in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) in Q2 2017". Namely, JRNAL has been accepted for the ‘waiting list’ and should be indexed in SCIE by Q2 in 2022, which means by June 2022 at the latest.So you encourage to your colleagues to submit JRNAL and also I want you and your colleagues to cite the papers in JRNAL as much as possible in papers submitted to other journals, proceedings and books, as citations are an important criterium for selection of the journal in SCIE.This good news came in from publisher. Note that once JRNAL is indexed, all papers published starting from volume 1 will be indexed too and have an impact factor. Thomson Reuters’s SCIE is higher Index than EI and Scopus.
