(3) Registration status and a New Video Submission Site!

We are sorry to report that we had to close Alpena, Delta College, and Traverse City sites this year (they have agreed to host for 2006). But we are pleased to announce a new site called “Video Submission” site. Any team around the world can enroll only exhibition teams to that site. Send a 5-10 minute videotape, CD, or DVD of your team’s exhibition postmarked by April 14. We will notify the acceptance to the World Robofest by April 18.

 

Please send videos to:
