Running from the 26th to 30th January, RoCKIn Camp 2014 is the second in a series of educational workshops happening as part of RoCKIn – an EU-funded initiative that uses competitions to drive innovation in robotics at home and at work. Taking place at Sapienza University in Rome, the Camp will bring together teams from around the world, providing expert instruction and practical experience in order to prepare them for the RoCKIn@Home and RoCKIn@Work competition events later in the year and again in 2015.

Of particular focus are vision based pattern recognition, object and people detection, object grasping and manipulation, and human-robot interaction in natural language. Following on from each lecture, a member of the RoCKIn Team will discuss benchmarking for each section: expanding upon how the competition events will run and success is measured.

With expert speakers from both sides of the Atlantic, the workshops should provide innovative insights and guidance on the future of robotics: sparking discussions that will then develop into the afternoon practical sessions. On the final day the competition scenario for each of the RoCKIn@Home and RoCKIn@Work Challenges will be introduced– giving competitors a marker from where to direct their future work and kick-start their Challenge entry. The preliminary schedule with links to the guest speakers can be found here (http://bit.ly/KeYQfT).

Applications for the Camp are now closed but information on future RoCKIn events and how to get involved will be posted on the website as soon as it’s available. The main slides from the Camp will be published online in early February, and you can catch up on the 2013 Camp here.

In the beautiful setting of the internal city and only a stones-throw away from the great monuments of the past, the 2014 RoCKIn Camp seeks to push the boundaries of robotics and drive a future society whereby, within domestic and industrial settings, human-robot interactions are common-place and will provide lifestyles previously limited to science-fiction.

To keep up-to-date with all the latest announcements, you can subscribe to the mailing list via the website and follow RoCKIn on Twitter, where the Team will be tweeting live throughout the event.
