As discussed in the online team leaders meeting yesterday, we should form
our TC/OC committee immediately.
Please complete the form from the link below to submit your nomination to
join RoboCup@Work 2021 TC or OC.
We have been reminded last night that we must provide the new rules and
plans for the virtual event by the end of January so that the Federation
would have enough time to prepare accordingly. Therefore, we are really
short on time, and we appreciate your quick response to the form. We would
like to receive the nominations by Friday, January 22. We will finalize the
nominations over the weekend and hopefully, we can kick off the discussions
by next Monday. Let's try to release the rules by the end of January!!
Below are the responsibilities of TCs and OCs:
Technical Committee: Participate in rules discussion, finalize the changes
and release the rulebook, oversee the competition integrity and
adherence to the rules.
Organizing Committee: Participate in rules discussion (optional), schedule
the competitions, plan the infrastructure and logistics, oversee the
smoothness of the competition, collect and manage the competition results
from the referees.
Let us know if you had any questions.

Dear RoboCup@Work Teams,
Happy New Year! We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a
great and healthy 2021.
It is now confirmed that RoboCup 2021 in Bordeaux has been canceled. The
RoboCup Federation has informed us that there will not be a physical
RoboCup 2021, but there will be a virtual RoboCup 2021!
Although we feel very unfortunate that we will not be able to gather with
our Robots in 2021, we are very excited about the virtual event. In fact,
we are confident that we will have a successful competition as we have
already held a virtual event during vRCAP 2021. We are counting on every
team to come together and help make it a remarkable event.
The preliminary plan is to hold the competition within every team's arena
(lab) where the robot's performance is broadcasted with at least two
cameras. Prior to each round, the participating team will explain the task
that the robot will be completing. The points are awarded based on the
initial presentation and the robot's actual performance. We plan to run the
competition in three days with two runs per day.
The above is just a draft plan, details and confirmed settings will be
reflected in the league's rulebook soon. Before we decide about the arena
details, we need to know how many teams are planning to participate and
their available space and arena materials. As such, we would like to ask
all teams to fill in a survey form by clicking the link below:
We also would like all team leaders and team members (optional) to
participate in a virtual meeting to discuss vRoboCup 2021 in more detail.
Therefore, please fill in your availability in the Doodle link below so we
can try to choose a date that would be convenient to most of us.
Please respond to the survey and Doodle as soon as possible.
Feel free to reach out to me or Sebastian if you had any questions/concerns.
Asad & Sebastian
