        Call for Participation

     European Robotics League (ERL)
      Professional Service Robots

         Local Tournament:
          7-9 March 2019
    University of Koblenz-Landau,
         Koblenz, Germany


The European Robotics League is an innovative concept for robot 
competitions. The ERL is composed of multiple "Local Tournaments", held 
in different research labs across Europe, with certified test beds, and 
a few competitions as part of "Major Tournaments" such as RoboCup. Teams 
participate in a minimum of two tournaments (Local and/or Major) per 
year and get scores based on their performances. Scores of the best two 
participations in tournaments for each team are added and teams are 
ranked based on their cumulative score. Prizes for the top teams will be 
awarded during this year's European Robotics Forum (ERF). For more 
information, please visit <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__eu-2Drobotics.net_robotics-5Fleague_&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=EXaFC0y-ZWv0HH0E9h299FtgH5FaW6SDqd5VMGj_LYQ&s=H7dOR6prrN-iEVIJqrt_OIAJUdtIvyj5KBkmqDRzVJo&e=>.
