[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] ERL Smart City Robot Competition and Forum during IROS2018

Pedro U Lima
IROS 2018 week will be full of exciting events concerning robot competitions, in particular the European Robotics League (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__eu-2Drobotics.net_robotics-5Fleague_&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=hi3FrWr-wIr2EIX4FhVkTIxRPA_kwi31pQed5pr8aO0&s=hLGrzsGJj7uCWF8j-iBgodjvzhlmKxf-Fy8gs87Afrg&e=) Consumer Robots Tournament, that will take place during the conference (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sites.google.com_site_erlsriros2018_&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=hi3FrWr-wIr2EIX4FhVkTIxRPA_kwi31pQed5pr8aO0&s=O6-DaANZHG0NB_IGj8aihWemS8Gn2WlOZ75c_-3sh3s&e=), involving 8 teams and 40 team members with their robot systems performing several domestic assistance tasks, interacting with humans in an apartment-like test bed.
 
After this competition, we are organizing the IROS 2018 Forum on Smart City Robot Competitions(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sites.google.com_site_erlsriros2018_forum&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=hi3FrWr-wIr2EIX4FhVkTIxRPA_kwi31pQed5pr8aO0&s=m-crnOERl9bSyIjOslJMilmzl-YgTK7X1NKOl8oRhkw&e=),  during which the ERL Consumer tournament winners will be given awards.  There will also be several talks on the ongoing ERL activities, particularly the upcoming ERL Smart City major event (Sept 16th to Sept 22nd 2019 at The Centre:MK, Milton Keynes, UK) which will showcase robots competing in relatable tasks in a shopping mall.  We will also host a debate on the impact of robot competitions on tech transfer, research advances, and student recruiting by companies, for which we are inviting experts on robotics research and development, tech transfer, robot competitions, recruiters, research funding mana
 gers and robotics company representatives.
 
Both events will take place under the scope of the H2020 SciRoc project (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__sciroc.kmi.open.ac.uk&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=hi3FrWr-wIr2EIX4FhVkTIxRPA_kwi31pQed5pr8aO0&s=SJAwW7DuJR58FSVLi8NCSwvMbXm0nzYaDM7AsNr68z0&e=).
 
Everyone attending IROS2018 is cordially invited to attend the ERL Consumer Robot tournament (all day from Oct 1- Oct 4) and participate in the Forum, on Oct 4, 16:00-19:00, at Room 4.L.7 (Restaurante)
 
Hope to meet many of you there
