Robot Competition and Exhibition



IJCAI-15 will host a Robot Competition to help raise awareness of
robotics in the AI community and to identify robotics problems that AI
can help to address. The competition will take place at IJCAI-15 in
Buenos Aires. A list of expert judges will be announced later.

There will be five prizes on offer for real-time robot demonstrations
in the following categories: physical skills (e.g. manipulation and
motion), social skills (e.g. human-robot interaction, multi-robot
collaboration, theory of mind), service tasks (e.g. general-purpose
service, cleaning the house, cocktail waiter, security guard) and open
(e.g. incredibly awesome applications). As the theme of IJCAI-15 will
be AI and Arts, we also welcome entries that demonstrate the interplay
of Robotics and Arts.

The key criteria are:

- Innovation - what new value or potential impact does the
demonstrated capability bring;

- Significance - quality of new AI/Robotics research questions it
addresses or exposes;

- Technical Quality - how well is the demonstration accomplished;

- Understandability - quality of the demonstration presentation.

Demonstration are expected to be given in an arena such as a living
room and are required to be completed in 10 minutes with synchronous
presentation/commendatory, followed by a 10 minute Q&A.

If you are interested in participating in the IJCAI Robot Competition,
please complete the registration form below, and send it to the
ijcai1...@gmail.com as early as possible, but no later than May 5,


Entry Team Name:
Contact Details including email address:
Team Description including link to website if there is one:
Robot Description including link to website if there is one:
Task/Skill Description of the robot skill/task you will attempt, the
AI problems you will address, your general approach, photo/video(s) of
the robot(s) not more than 2 pages.


Successful teams will be notified by May 15 if they can be
accommodated at the IJCAI-15 venue. Physical constraints of the
demonstration area will be made available later. Specific requirements
should be pre-approved by the robotic program chairs.


A robot exhibition will be held together with the 2015 IJCAI Robot
Competition. The Robot Exhibition is designed to provide a unique
opportunity for universities and companies to bring their own robots
and show them at the exhibit area, which is open to the conference
participants and the public. If you are interested in participating in
the IJCAI Robot Exhibition, please send the registration form to
ijcai1...@gmail.com as early as possible, but no later than Friday
May 15, 2015.

Participants are expected to manage the logistics for their robots on their own.
