The Event

Robotica 2019 is the union among the most respected competitions and the most important scientific congresses in the fields of robotics and A.I (Artificial Intelligence) in Latin America. Every year Robotica takes place in Latin American Country. Robotica is a Latin-American event that brings together several sub-events that aim to encourage research and development in the area of Robotics. Robotica is promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), IEEE and by RobCup Brasil (Brazilian arm of RobCup Federation). In 2019, Robotica will include the following sub-events: 1. Finals of XIII OBR – Brazilian Robotics Olympiad; 2. XVII CBR – Brazilian Robotics Competition); 3. IX MNR – National Robotics Show; 4. XI WRE – Workshop on Robotics in Education; 5. XVI LARS – Latin America Robotics Symposium (Latin American Robotics Symposium); XVIII LARC – Latin American Robotics Competition (Latin American Robotics Competition). These events will all take place in parallel, between October 22 and 26, 2019, from Tuesday to Saturday. Robotica 2019 is an event that lasts 5 days and has an estimated participation of 2,000 participants from all over Latin America, from elementary students to researchers. Even though it is a Latin American event, every year Robotics receives researchers and teams from countries in Europe and Asia. It is a singular event with a great capacity of entertainment to the more than 20,000 expected visitors, in addition to enormous spontaneous generated media.
