=== RoboCup at Home Education Challenge 2018 @ RoboCup 2018 Montreal ===

June 16 ~ 21, 2018
Montreal, Canada


RoboCup at Home Education is an educational initiative that promotes
educational efforts to boost RoboCup at Home participation and service
robot development. We have started @Home Education activities since
2015, organized various competitions in Japan Open 2015, 2016, 2017,
and RoboCup Asia-Pacific 2017, which generated more than 10 new teams
with more than 50 participants in @Home participation. As an
educational effort, since 2016 we have also conducted more than 8
workshops in domestic Japan and overseas. The workshop audiences were
ranging from 20~70 participants, not limited to technical university
students, but also inexperienced high school students and general
public. Last December, in collaboration with MathWorks, we had
organized the Education Challenge at RoboCup Asia-Pacific 2017
Bangkok, in a combined workshop and competition event. It was a great
success in transforming totally inexperienced participants to be able
to build robot and ace the competition.

With this inspiring motivation, we are honored to host the
RoboCup at Home Education Challenge 2018 Workshop & Competition in the
Innovation Summit of RoboCup 2018 Montreal on this coming June 2018
for the participation from worldwide RoboCup community.
