*Call for Participation*- *GORE_2*
3rd of February till 6th of February 2022 (Remote)
RoboCup is an international initiative that fosters research and education in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence through a variety of competitions (RoboCupSoccer, RoboCupRescue, RoboCup@Home, RoboCupJunior) involving mostly multi-robot systems. RoboCup currently includes a number of different robot soccer leagues that focus on different research challenges.
In addition to the SPL RoboCup events in 2022, we would like to offer GORE_2. GORE started as an replacement event for the cancelled GermanOpen in 2021 and focuses on 5 vs. 5 game play in two remote arenas in Europe. To maximize the number of played games, we use a modified version of the swiss tournament system. All human members of the teams stay at home or in their lab but only the robots will travel to one of the hosting arenas.
The former rules for GORE 2021 can be found in this document: https://collaborating.tuhh.de/HULKs/gore/-/blob/master/GORe-Rules.pdf. For the GORE_2 event the new rules will be based on the once from 2021 but integrate the rule changes for RoboCup 2022 being drafted at the moment. The RoboCup rules have been modified regarding robot safety and standardization to make it easier for hosting teams to manage robots. We will update you as soon as they are out and we adapted to them. The website https://gore-event.netlify.app/%C2%A0will also be updated soon.
Here you find all key dates for GORE_2.
