== Description and History ==
The Portuguese Robotics Open (also known as Festival Nacional de Robótica)
had its 1st edition in 2001. The event has had enormous growth since
the 1st edition, both in the number of teams, participants and visitors
and also includes an international IEEE conference where national an
international researchers present their latest work in the field of
Robotics (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__icarsc2020.uac.pt_&d=DwIF-g&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=9_dxSVjtG3JVygKIDzERi_zuS893U5odMK9kJ1jZp1Q&s=pxILqsZq5Qda5P-0xP5AMXtTjBY1M-NhWCkSZ7JmXzQ&e= ).

The 20th edition of the Portuguese Robotics Open will be held in Ponta
Delgada, S. Miguel -  Azores, Portugal, on April 15-19, 2020.

Ponta Delgada is situated on the beautiful island of S. Miguel, Azores. It is
the largest municipality and economic capital of the Autonomous Region
of the Azores. The Azores is an archipelago of nine islands on the northeast,
at the Atlantic Ocean. The main touristic attractions are the whale watching
and the different lakes in the large volcanic craters of Sete Cidades,
Fogo and Furnas.

The airport of Ponta Delgada is very close to the city (10 minutes by car).
Daily regular flights from Lisbon are from TAP - Air Portugal,
SATA - Air Azores and Ryanair.

There are also direct connections to some other cities of Europe (more or
less, once a week).

== Hoping to see you visiting Azores ==

The Portuguese Robotics Open is currently an initiative of
Portuguese Society of Robotics.

Hoping to see you at the Portuguese Robotics Open!

Kind Regards,
The Portuguese Robotics Open Organizing Committee
