*Call for Participation*

IJCAI-13 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 -13 in Beijing and it is
open to all intelligent robots.

There will be four 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). The key criteria are as follows:

   - 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.

Each demonstration is expected to be performed in an arena (like a living
room) and required to be completed in less than 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
jianmin at ustc.edu.cn by Friday May 10, 2013.

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 20 if they can be accommodated at
the IJCAI-13 venue.

A robot exhibition will be held together with the 2013 IJCAI Robot
Competition. The Robot Exhibition is designed to provide a unique
opportunity for universities and companies to bring your 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 tojianmin at ustc.edu.cn by
