Dear roboticists,

this is the last CALL FOR PARTICIPATION in the EURATHLON 2013.
Your expression of interest has to be received by 14.Apr.2013 latest!

EURATHLON is a new robot competition supported by the European Commission

The basic concept evolved from the C-ELROB events, however there will be 
major changes:

  - Price money
  - Student travel support
  - Common Shared Data Sets (ROS bags)
  - Free hardware loans (incl. ROS driver)
  - Workshops and static/dynamic display

The scenarios are

  - Reconnaissance and surveillance in urban structures (USAR)
  - Mobile manipulation for handling hazardous material
  - Search and rescue in a smoke filled underground structure
  - Autonomous navigation using  GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO

We would be happy to welcome you and your team to the EURATHLON tournament 
on the 23.-27. September in Berchtesgaden!
