    Robots are versatile machines that are increasingly being used not only to per- form dirty, dangerous, and dull tasks in manufacturing industries, but also to achieve societal objectives, such as enhancing safety in transportation, reducing the use of pesticide in agriculture, helping people with health conditions, provid- ing companionship, and improving efficacy in the fight against crime and civilian protection. The 2014 event of SIMPAR was held at the “Giovanni XXIII‿ Conference Center in Bergamo, Italy during October 20–23. It followed the previous works of the first SIMPAR 2008 in Venice, Italy, the second SIMPAR 2010 in Darmstadt, Germany, and the third SIMPAR 2012 in Tsukuba, Japan and provided a forum for concentrated discussions on the topics of interest.
