What is RoboCup?
The Robot World Cup Initiative (RoboCup) is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotic research by providing a standard problem, playing soccer, where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined.
Multi-agent systems represent a growing area of research in the AI community, but mostly due to the variety of applications in which multi-agent systems have been used, contacts and exchanges between groups of researchers working in this domain have not been so frequent. The RoboCup offers the possibility to confront and exchange ideas in a common domain and encourages researchers to establish and keeping contacts with each other.
What is the aim of the RoboCup US Committee?
The RoboCup US Committee has the aim to promote the RoboCup initiative in the US through organizing local events and putting in contact groups of research in the US that share the interest in RoboCup. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if:
- you want to know more about the initiative;
- you are participating or intend to participate in RoboCup (we would like to have links of all the groups in the US who want to participate in RoboCup).
