XV Latin American Robotics Competition

XIV Brazilian Robotics Competition

Touching virtual hexagons

Welcome to XV Latin American Robotics Competition (LARC) and XIII Brazilian Robotics Competition (CBR). LARC/CBR is composed by RoboCup Brazil Open and IEEE Latin American Robotics Contest. There are several challenges for soccer robots, service robots, logistics, education robots, rescue robots and others. Students and researchers can test your robots in any of these challenges. See the Categories that will be present in LARC/CBR 2017.

Call for papers

All teams should submit a Team Description Paper (TDP) to participate in LARC/CBR 2015. TDPs can be written in English or Portuguese.

Teams who do not submit a TDP or have their TDP rejected can not attend the event even if they have made ​​the payment of registration. Amounts paid will not be returned under any circumstances.

Teams from the same institution that participate in different categories, should submit different TDPs  for each category.

The TDP shall describe the ideas implemented in the team. You can describe the whole system or  focus on one or two main components. We recommend that the innovative and important topics or alternative approaches adopted by other teams to the same problem and topics that might interest the other teams are included in the TDP.

It is especially important to provide clear and objective explanations. You can assume that readers are familiar to general topics related to the category (description, rules, etc.) and focus your text on the important topics of your work. It should be explained the technical details of how your approach works so that other researchers can replicate your experiments and results. Thus all researchers can benefit from each other’s experiences presented.

TDPs Format

The TDP should have the same format as LARS.

MS Word template: ieeeconf_A4.dot

LaTex template: ieeeconf.zip

Number of Pages: 4 to 6 pages.

Each team should pre-register on Olympo System (http://www.sistemaolimpo.org/) until 23th June, 2017. To perform pre-registration follow these steps:

1. Log in Olimpo System or select the Register option to register an account to access the system. If you have forgotten your password, click Forgot Password?

2. Choose the option Events and locate the LARC/CBR – Latin American and Brazilian Robotics Competition – 2016.

3. Click on the button Participate.

4. In the confirmation window, choose your institution and Confirm. If your account is not associated to any institution you should cancel this procedure and select My data -> My Institutions. In this window you can associate your account to an existing institution or register a new institution in the system before associate it to your account. When you finish, go back and confirm your participation.

5. Go to My interests and select the button My jobs in LARC/CBR – Latin American and Brazilian Robotics Competition – 2016.

6. Click Include job and then Continue.

7. In the next window you will see a field called Title of Work. You should fill in this field with your TEAM NAME. Attention: It is not your TDP title, it is your TEAM NAME. You can not change this name after final registration.

8. In the next window select ONLY ONE category to pre-register your team. Each team should be pre-registered exactly to ONE category.

9. After choosing your team category, you should add all your team members in the field Authors. Even if you are not sure if a team member will attend the competition, you should add him in this field. It will not be possible to add or change team members after TDP submission, so it is better to add all possible team members at this point. To add a team member click in the button . In the registration of Authors window, you should choose if the team member is a Teacher or Student. Then you need to fill in at least the mandatory fields(*). It is a better practice that each team member register himself before you proceed with this step, so when you type the member Name you will see his registration and just choose it and retrieve all information. Repeat this step for each team member.

10. At this point your team pre-registration is finished and you can save it by clicking in the button Save for After Submitting. If you want to submit your TDP see further instructions in Papers.
