RoboCup 2021 (Virtual) Small Size League
June 22 - 28, 2020

About RoboCup
RoboCup is an international scientific initiative with the goal to advance the state of the art of intelligent robots. When established in 1997, the original mission was to field a team of robots capable of winning against the human soccer World Cup champions by 2050.

About the Small Size League
The RoboCup Small Size League is a part of the RoboCup Research Federation focused on multi-agent coordination and control. Teams currently compete in 11 vs. 11 soccer matches (6 vs. 6 in Div. B). The robots must fit within an 18 cm diameter circle and must be no higher than 15 cm. The robots play soccer with an orange golf ball on a green carpeted field that is about 12 m long by 9 m wide.

About the qualification
To qualify for the competition, each team must submit a Team Description Paper and a video by February 16, 2021. More information on the qualification requirements and processes are located on the website: https://ssl.robocup.org/robocup-2021-qulification/

Intent of participation
As stated in emails before, all teams that qualified for the 2020 are automatically qualified for the RoboCup 2021. However, we will request that all teams send an intent of participation email. The date of this email will be informed later, as the Organising Committee wants to have aligned how the competition will happen with all the uncertainties brought by COVID-19. Therefore, we will request an intent of participation from all teams when the competition is better defined.
