| Congress: Call for papers
On behalf of the 10th anniversary FIRA RoboWorld Cup (FIRA 2005) Organizing Committee, I
would like to invite your organization to take part in the FIRA Cup and Congress
planned in Singapore from 10 – 16 December, 2005.
The Federation of International Robosoccer Association (FIRA)
is a non-profit organization which organizes robotic competitions around the
globe annually. RoboSoccer competitions started in
1996. FIRA was established on June 5,
1997. FIRA RoboWorld Cup is
held every year on global-scale. This is the first time that this event is
coming to Singapore. Paris hosted the world Cup in
1998, followed by Brazil
Australia (2000), Beijing (2001), Korea (2002), Austria (2003) and Korea
(2004). The Singapore robotic teams have won top prizes in some of these events.
We are very proud to be the host of this event this year. Thus we would like to
make this as successful and memorable as possible to all its participants.
The objective of the competition is to promote the spirit of science and
technology to our younger generation. It also serves
to bring together skilled researchers and students from different backgrounds to
challenge one another in developing better robots for technologies of the
future. Robotics is an exciting, multi-disciplinary area which integrates
intelligent control, communications, image processing, mechatronics, sensor
fusion and many other aspects on one single platform. It is a worthwhile
learning experience for all who are involved.
