John Anderson, along with Rodrigo de Silva Guerra from the University of Osaka, are handling qualifications for the 2008 RoboCup simulation league mixed reality competitions. Qualified teams will receive a set of the second generation citizen microrobots, and will be expected to compete at RoboCup 2008 in China.

The official Call for Teams and qualification submission instructions are hosted locally. The main page for the competitions is at the University of Osaka. Deadline for submissions (a 12-page team description paper in LNCS format) has been extended to February 8, 2008.

We will be hosting RoboCup 2018 in Montreal, the first time RoboCup has come to Canada!  Jacky Baltes will be the General Chair of the event.

The Autonomous Agents Laboratory is one of the research laboratories within the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba, and is directed by Dr. John Anderson and Dr. Jacky Baltes. The goal of our work is the improvement of technology surrounding hardware and software agents as well as the development of applications employing these technologies. We are especially interested in cooperation in multi-agent settings, and the infrastructure necessary to support this and other forms of social interaction in intelligent systems.
