This paper reports the launching and organizing procedures of Robomech 2020, the first online conference in the history of Robomech series. We discuss the required functions of an online academic conference and show an implementation example. Analysis of the conference results and responses from the participants reveals the advantages and disadvantages of Facebook that is used as a platform of the online conference. The analysis also indicates the constitutive problems of the online conference. Consequently, this paper provides multiple clues for constructing a new platform suitable for more active and efficient online academic conferences.
