RoboCup China Open 2015

Introduction

RoboCup is an international academic and educational initiative. It aims to foster Robotics and AI research by providing standard problems and benchmarking platforms where a wide range of technologies can be developed, integrated and examined, as well as being used for integrated project-oriented education.

The RoboCup China Open 2015 is an international event to promote RoboCup research, education and competition in China. It will be held in Guiyang, Guizhou Province on October 17-19. Although RoboCup 2015 was held in Hefei, China and more Chinese teams participated than usual, China Open 2015 is still the only chance of national competition for much more Chinese teams.

Guiyang is the capital city of Guizhou Province. It has a population of 5.68 million and is located in ridge-upon-ridge mountains in Southwest China. The flight distance between Shanghai and Guiyang is about 1600km. This area is famous for tourism traditionally. But now it is a national inland-opening area, approved by the Chinese central government last year.
