Nanosoccer at 2009 RoboCup in Austria
December 8, 2008

The World Cup may be two years away, but soccer aficionados can get an early start at satisfying their yen for global competition when the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the RoboCup Federation host the second-ever international nanosoccer contest next summer.

Nanosoccer–the Lilliputian competition where computer-driven “nanobots” the size of dust mites challenge one another on fields no bigger than a grain of rice–will be part of the RoboCup games in Graz, Austria, from June 29-July 5, 2009. NIST is now accepting applications for organizations wishing to field robots in the events.

Rules for the “Nanogram 2009” competition and the application form (called the “Team Description Paper”) are available online.

Teams wishing to compete in Austria must submit their application materials by Dec. 31, 2008, by either e-mail to nanogram@nist.gov or by regular mail to RoboCup Nanogram 2009, c/o Craig McGray, NIST, 100 Bureau Dr., MS 8120, Gaithersburg, Md. 20899-8120.
