> light conditions, Object Manipulation, Adaptive Behaviours, Behaviour
> Integration, Ambient Intelligence, Standardization and System Integration.

>   - Domestic Standard Platform League [DSPL] (Toyota HSR)
>   - Social Standard Platform League [SSPL] (SoftBank Robotics Pepper)
>   - Open Platform League [OPL]

> Step 1) Intention of Participation (strongly recommended)
> 
> The team sends an email to the Organizing Committee (oc at robocupathome.org)
> to indicate your intention to participate in the RoboCup at Home 2017 event,
> including the following basic information:
> Team Name:
> League:
> Country:
> Affiliation:
> Team Leader Name:
> Contact information (E-mail):
> Web site:
> 
> Only one platform can be specified per team.

> RoboCup at Home 2017 event. Please fill in the following information:
> Team Name:
> League:
> Country:
> Affiliation:
> Team Leader Name:
> Contact information (E-mail):
> Web site: Link to a team video:
> Link to a team web site devoted to their efforts:

>   - The email must be encoded in UTF-8 using only the ISO-8859-1 character
>   set.
> 
> *Important Notice:* As platforms are independent, you must send an
> application email for each platform you want to compete in, specifying
> different team names in each. Qualification Material (e.g. video and TDP)
> must match the robot to qualify.

> Instructions for the Team Video
> ===========================
> 
> As a proof of running hardware, each team has to provide a qualification
> video. As a minimum requirement for qualification, we consider showing the
> robot(s) successfully solving at least one test of the current or last
> year's rulebook.
> 
> *[Standard Platforms Only]* If the robot shown in the video is a Standard
> Platform one (Toyota HSR or SoftBank Robotics Pepper), it must not be
> altered or modified in any way. However, *teams are allowed to use any *
> other* robot for the video* but, in that case, the TDP must clearly state
> how your approach will be adapted to fit into a SPL robot (e.g., stereo
> vision instead of an active RGB-D commercial camera for a popular
> videogame).
> 
> 
> 
> 
> 
> Instructions for the TDP
> ========================
> 
> The TDP is an 8-pages long scientific paper, detailing information on the
> technical and scientific approach of the team’s research, while including
> also the following:
> 
>   - Innovative technology and scientific contribution
>   - Photo(s) of the robot
>   - Focus of research/research interests
>   - Re-usability of the system for other research groups
>   - Applicability of the robot in the real world
>   - Brief, compact list of the 3rd party robot's software (e.g. ROS vision
>   should be included, but not OpenCV).
>   - *[Open Platform Only]* Brief, compact description of the robot's
>   hardware.
>   - *[Standard Platforms Only]* Specify all external computing devices, if
>   any.
> 
> For the TDP, please use the Springer LNAI format
> <http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0> used in the
> RoboCup Symposium submissions and limit yourself to 8 pages without
> altering margins or spacing. You may download a template for the TDP from
> here <https://github.com/RoboCupAtHome/TDPTemplate>.
> 
> *Remark [Standard Platforms Only]: *If the robot shown in the Team Video
> for Qualification is not a standard one, the TDP must also specify the
> approach used to adapt what is shown in the video and explained in the TDP
> into the Standard Platform Robot.
> 
> 
> 
> 
> Instructions for the Web site
> ==========================
> 
> While the TDP goes into detail about the technical and scientific approach
> of the team’s research, the website should be designed for a broader
> audience, including:
> 
>   - Photos of the robot(s)
>   - Videos of the robot(s)
>   - Description of the approaches and information on scientific
>   achievements
>   - Relevant publications (last 5 years, preferably available to download)
>   - Link to repositories with software for the community
>   - Team members
>   - Previous participation in RoboCup
> 
> 
> 
> 
> Evaluation criteria:
> =================
> 
> Qualification materials will be judged by the following criteria:
> 
>   - Team description paper (clarity, scientific contributions,
>   re-usability by the league, applicability in real world)
>   - Qualification Video (navigation, human-robot interaction,
>   people/object recognition, object manipulation and new features)
>   - Website (multimedia, publications from last 5 years, downloadable
>   content, open-source software and other contributions)
>   - Relevant Scientific contribution/publications (downloadable papers and
>   open-source software)
>   - Novelty of approach (what you do is new for @Home)
> 
> We encourage teams to produce self-explicative videos for a general
> audience where complex tasks are solved. For Team Description Papers focus
> on the scientific contribution and avoid brief descriptions of the overall
> system.
> 
> *Note to experienced competitors:* Major changes are being done in the
> rulebook. You may download the latest version from:
> https://github.com/RoboCupAtHome/RuleBook.
>

> 
> 
> 
> With kind regards, and looking forward to see your team in Nagoya,
> The 2017 RoboCup at Home Organizing and Technical Committees
