SciRoc camp is an online training session, where university students and young professionals from around the world can learn about the central concepts of robot competitions and benchmarking via  lectures and collaborative sessions. Furthermore, the participants will get an overview of the "Smart Cities Competition: SciRoc" to be held in 2021.

The camp will be accompanied by a symposium for the Commemoration of Prof Gerhard Kraetzschmar. The symposium will bring together many stalwarts from the robotics community to talk about the recent advances in the filed of robotics, robotics competition and robotics benchmarking. 

All talks will be streamed and for the on-site talks there is a limited number of seats available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
