Europe's societal and industrial needs.
The first introductory camp will take place from 28 June to 1 July 2013 during this year's RoboCup in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The Camp will give an introduction to the new RoCKIn competitions and look at the current status of RoboCup@Home and RoboCup@Work, with the ultimate aim of facilitating the entry of new teams into RoCKIn@Home and RoCKIn@Work. Activities include lectures and participation in the RoboCup symposium.
Students and researchers from the EU, who have an interest in entering the RoCKIn@Home and RoCKIn@work competitions, are all invited to apply for RoCKIn Camp 2013.
