Internationals 2022 Expressions of Interest

RoboCup Junior Australia is seeking expressions of interest from mentors about participation in the RoboCup Junior International competition in 2022. This event will be held in Bangkok, Thailand approximately July 11-17 2022.

Interested mentors should fill in the following form: https://forms.office.com/r/4e7S4hmvu9 

This form must be submitted by December 10th 2021.

Unlike competitions in Australia, teams need to qualify for the international competition. Since 2021 presented a significant challenge for many teams to participate in events due to COVID restrictions, the qualification process for internationals will be different this year:
1. Interested mentors should fill in this EOI by the due date
2. Teams who are successful in their EOI may be asked to submit various documentation and participate in an online interview. The details for this will be sent to selected teams in due course
3. Mentors will be notified if they have been successful in qualifying 

Mentors should note that the international competition is challenging. The level of competitiveness is significantly higher than in Australian events. The rules for the international competition also differ from Australian rules; robots need to be modified accordingly. Please refer here for details: https://junior.robocup.org/

Additionally, all members of the team must be age 14+ as of July 1st 2022. There are no separate divisions for beginner or experienced teams. There are also limits on the team size:

  • The minimum team size is 2 students
  • The maximum team size is 4 students for the Soccer and Rescue leagues, and 5 students for OnStage

By submitting this EOI, you should have a reasonable expectation that you will be ready and able to travel to Thailand in 2022. Teams are required to fund all travel and registration expenses.

Any questions should be directed to the international representative, Graham Stock graham.stock@robocupjunior.org.au

RoboCup is an international organisation whose purpose is to foster Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics research by providing a standard problem where a wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. 

Teams from around the world compete annually in the RoboCup international competition. The RCJA Australian National Championships serves as the qualification event for the international event.

The international challenges differ slightly from those offered in Australia, which means modifications may be required for robots. For more information, visit RoboCupJunior.
