New application deadline: January, 27th 2015 (Extended)
The RoCKIn Camp 2015 aims at leveraging the preparation of teams to participate in the RoCKIn@Home and RoCKIn@Work challenges, the competition event that will be organized by RoCKIn in Lisbon 2015.
The Camp 2015 will take place from 18th to 22nd March in the ECHORD++ facility of Peccioli (Italy) and it is designed as a hands-on week long school, where teams improve the performance of their systems through working sessions in the RoCKIn competition tasks and functional benchmarks. At the Camp site, a realistic environment for both competitions will be provided by relying on the existing ECHORD++ testbeds and equipped with the RoCKIn ground truth system for logging data and create benchmarks.
The RoCKIn Camp 2014 will take place from 26th to 30th January in Rome at the Auditorium Antonianum (http://www.auditoriumantonianum.it/?lang=en). It is designed as a hands-on weekly school, where teams acquire new capabilities and/or improve the performance of their systems in the competition tasks.
RoCKIn Camp 2013 is the first of the three camps scheduled within the RoCKIn Coordinated Action. In particular, the main goal of Camp 2013 is to introduce students and researchers to robot competitions and benchmarking. Participants not previously involved in any other robotic competition are very welcome, since RoCKIn's effort is in giving life to new robotic teams for competitions. We also encourage members of other robotic competitions (e.g. RoboCup) to apply for a different track with respect to the one they've already experience on.
