Call For Participation

The 21th RoboCup competitions will be held in Nagoya, Japan, from 25 to 31 July 2017. We would like to invite all RoboCup Rescue Simulation teams to participate in the RoboCup 2017 World Championship.

Challenges for Artificial Intelligence

This problem involves advanced and interdisciplinary research themes. As AI/robotics research, for example, behavior strategy is a challenging problem...

Infrastructure Competition

The Infrastructure competition aim is to evaluate possible enhancements and expansions of the RoboCup Rescue Simulation League environment based on the new ideas and concepts proposed in these tools and simulators.


RoboCup Rescue Simulation is a Large Multi-Agent System. Decision Making Algorithms , Task Allocation Methods, Multi-Agent Coordination, Team Formation Methods and Behavior Modeling are some of research areas in this system.

What is RoboCup?

RoboCup is an international scientific initiative with the goal to advance the state of the art of intelligent robots. When established in 1997, the original mission was to field a team of robots capable of winning against the human soccer World Cup champions by 2050. RoboCup is the leading and most diverse competition for intelligent robots, and one of the world's most important technology events in research and training. The World Cup of robots combines a variety of interdisciplinary problems from robotics, artificial intelligence, informatics, as well as electrical and mechanical engineering, among others. As the central discipline, robots play soccer in different leagues. Additional visionary application disciplines, such as intelligent robots as assistants for rescue missions, in households and in industrial production have been added during the last few years.
