The RoboCup Soccer Simulation 3D Competition provides a great opportunity to
experiment with humanoid robots without the need for investing in
robot's hardware. It
facilitates experimenting with different learning and optimization
techniques by providing
a simulated environment.

Information about the registration and qualification process for the
RoboCup 2011
Soccer Simulation League, 3D competition:

You should receive a confirmation e-mail for your pre-registration in a
few days (up to 4 days).
Please make sure that you receive the confirmation e-mail before the
deadline.


Qualification
------------------

Qualification is based on a team's current performance, previous
achievements in RoboCup,
and scientific contributions to the RoboCup community in past years,
cooperation in
the 3D mailing list and development of the simulator.

In RoboCup 2011, up to 28 teams will participate in the 3D competitions.
The top three teams
from RoboCup 2010 (Apollo3D, Nao Team Humboldt and HfutEngine) are
automatically qualified
after pre-registering their teams and submitting an appropriate Team
Description Paper (TDP).
The other 25 teams will be selected through a qualification process.

The qualification deadline and rules are not finalized yet. The OC does
not accept qualification
materials from teams who have not been pre-registered by the
pre-registration deadline. The
qualification deadline and its rules will be announced soon. However,
the rules will not be
very different from the rules of 2010 competitions.

Good luck
