New schedule for the 24th edition of RoboCup in June 2021

The RoboCup Federation and the University of Bordeaux, on behalf of the local organising committee, announce the postponement of the 24th edition of RoboCup in France TO NOW BE HELD FROM June 22 to 28, 2021. The current situation linked to the COVID-19 led the organising committee to postpone the event for a year and thus make it possible to host the biggest robotics and artificial intelligence competition in the best possible conditions in France. The joint events planned for this occasion, NAIA, EduCamp, Farming, Perseverons conference and the GDR robotics workshop will be hosted next year too. All of the event’s partners, the 3,500 international RoboCupers, the 3,000 robots and the organising committee, will meet you in the summer of 2021, in Bordeaux, for the 24th edition of the RoboCup. The RoboCup Federation will follow up shortly with further information for participants on what to expect in the coming year.
