2006 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics (ROBIO 2006) was successfully held in Kunming, China, December 17-20, 2006. A young and well-respected annual conference, the Kunming meeting built on ROBIO's success the previous two years in Shenyang and Hong Kong, and offered an excellent forum for researchers in robotics and biomimetics from Asia as well as around the world to exchange their ideas and latest results. Thanks go to all the sponsors, participants, and volunteers. Hope to see you again in Sanya at ROBIO 2007!
