Call for Participation
RoboCup 2021 (Virtual) 3D Soccer Simulation League
June 22 – June 28, 2021
https://2021.robocup.org/

The RoboCup Soccer Simulation 3D Competition provides a great opportunity to experiment with humanoid robots without the need for investing in robot hardware. It facilitates experimenting using different learning and optimization techniques by providing a simulated environment. Since the games are played with teams of 11 players, the league is also a very good environment for experimenting on multi-robot coordination methodologies.

We would like to invite you to participate in the RoboCup 2021 Soccer Simulation League 3D competition, which will take place from June 22 – June 28 as a remote event worldwide. If you are interested in participating, please register your team and follow the procedure as outlined below.

Important Dates
Team Qualification Materials Submission Deadline: May 2, 2021 (23:59 AoE)
Qualified Teams Announcement: May 22, 2021
Competition: June 22 – 28 2021

*No Pre-Registration required this year.*

Qualification
Qualification is based on a team's current performance, previous achievements in RoboCup, and scientific contributions in relevant areas in past years, cooperation in the 3D mailing list and development of the simulator. Also, up to six slots will be assigned in priority to new teams. Since RoboCup 2020 had to be postponed to 2021, as a special rule for this year only, all ten teams qualified for 2020 are automatically qualified for 2021 once they register. In RoboCup 2021, up to 24 teams will participate in the 3D Soccer Simulation competition. The remaining (at least) 14 slots will be selected through a qualification process.

The qualification deadline is 2nd of May 2021.
