RoCKIn Camp 2014

logo

RoCKIn is short for “Robot Competitions Kick Innovation in Cognitive Systems and Robotics” and it is an EU-funded Coordination Action aiming at the promotion of research and education through competitions (http://rockinrobotchallenge.eu).

The RoCKIn Camp 2014 aims at supporting the preparation of teams to participate in the RoCKIn@Home and RoCKIn@Work challenges, during the competition events that will be organized by RoCKIn in 2014 and 2015.

The RoCKIn Camp 2014 will take place in Rome and is designed as a hands-on weekly school, where teams acquire new capabilities and/or improve the performance of their systems in the competition tasks. The activities planned in the fist four days of the RoCKIn Camp 2014 address the following topics: the robot platform and the basic software infrastructure, perception, manipulation and human robot interaction through speech. Each topic will include introductory lectures and practical sessions. The last day will be devoted to finalize a demonstration in the competition scenario.
New: The event is partially supported by the IEEE RAS-TEP program ( IEEE Robotics & Automation Society Technical Education Program – Summer Schools )

Students and researchers, who have an interest in entering the RoCKIn@Home and RoCKIn@Work competitions, are invited to apply for the RoCKIn Camp 2014. We accept application in two formats:
• team applications (for teams of 2-3 people, not necessarily from the same university, but with an already established joint team). Team applicants are encouraged to bring their robot to be used in the practical activities, but this is not a requirement.
• individual applications by existing or prospective team members.

For the practical sessions, participants will be arranged in teams. Accepted applicant teams will become RoCKIn-Camp-14 teams; individual participants may be joining existing teams also with the goal of creating additional collaborations and opportunities. If needed, additional teams will be created from individual applicants. Each team will be assigned a specific task, requiring modules and tools presented in the lectures. The selection will be based on the team submission material and will also consider the formation of new teams. The expected audience will be up to 12 teams and up to 36 participants.
All successful applicants will be offered:
• accommodation in shared rooms (including breakfast, 6 nights)
• lunch (5 days) and 1 social dinner
• attendance to lectures and practical sessions

In addition, the teams of 3 people that will carry a robot to be used in the practical sessions of the Camp are entitled to receive a travel support up to 1200 Euros (per team), and the teams of 3 people that plan to attend without a robot are entitled to receive a travel support up to 600 Euros (per team).

International Conference of the National Council of Resistance of Iran

International Conference on IranOn the afternoon of December 19 we hosted an international conference attended by prominent European and American political figures. Participants expressed their support for a call by Mrs Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, for an international campaign.

This campaign is aimed at securing the freedom of the seven Iranian dissidents taken hostage in Camp Ashraf on September 1. Other objectives of the campaign include guaranteeing the security of 3,000 Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty in Iraq, as well as support for demands by protesting prisoners throughout Iran, in particular cessation of arbitrary executions which have intensified under the rule the mullahs’ new president, Hassan Rouhani.

Speakers condemned the violation of human rights in Iran, especially the arbitrary executions, and called on the Italian government, the European Union, and the Security Council to make the abolition of the death sentence and the improvement of human rights in Iran a pre-condition to economic and political relations with this regime.

In addition to Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, others who made speeches at the conference included: Mr. Bernard Kouchner, former French Foreign Minister; Ms. Michèle Alliot-Marie, former French Foreign, Defense and Interior Minister; Lucio Malan, member of Italian Senate Presidential Board; Gianni Alemanno, former Mayor of Rome; Carlo Ciccioli, former representative and joint Chair of Italian Committee of Parliamentarians and Citizens for a Free Iran (CPCIL); Senator Ingrid Betancourt, Columbian Presidential candidate; Senator Robert Torricelli from U.S.; Dr. Juan Garces, prominent international jurist and Advisor to Salvador Allende; Taher Boumedra, UN official responsible for Ashraf dossier; Ms Soyem from Albania; General David Phillips, former commander for protection of Ashraf; and Colonel Wesley Martin, former senior Anti-terrorism Force Protection Officer for all Coalition Forces in Iraq and Commander of Forward Operation Base in Ashraf; and a number of Italian governors and mayors.

Participants expressed their content with a decree by the Spanish Court against the organizers and perpetrators of the September 1 massacre at Ashraf and offered their gratitude to Mrs Rajavi for her endeavors to end the pain and suffering of hundreds of members and supporters of the PMOI (MEK) and the Iranian Resistance who had staged a hunger strike for 108 days in an international campaign to win the release of the hostages.

Speakers emphasized that the massacre of the PMOI (MEK) in Camp Ashraf and the persistence of crimes against members of the Iranian Resistance in Camp Liberty and the continuation of the enchainment of seven Camp Ashraf hostages is the product of inaction and silence on part of United States and United Nations, despite their commitments to these people who are all ‘protected persons’ under the Fourth Geneva Convention, in addition to the fact that in view of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, they are recognized as refugees or asylum-seekers and ‘people of concern’.

Speakers called on the United Nations, the U.S. government, and the European Union to act in adherence with their legal obligations and repeated commitments vis-à-vis the safety and security of 3,000 Iranian refugees in Camp Liberty.

Referring to the Geneva agreement, Mrs Rajavi said: “While the mullahs’ nuclear project has borne no fruit for the Iranian people except to plunder their wealth and is utterly despised by them and while the clerical regime is engulfed in crises, had the P5+1 insisted on a firm policy of implementing in full the Security Council resolutions, it could have surely forced the mullahs at the Geneva negotiations to bring their nuclear program to a complete halt. Nonetheless, advocates of appeasement with the mullahs and those who shake mullahs’ bloody hands, are never capable of taking the bomb out of mullahs’ hands.

She added that this is while the mullahs are more vulnerable than ever and if western countries refrain from assisting them, and people of Iran would deal with this regime as they should.

Mrs Rajavi described the termination of mullahs’ nuclear program as a target at hand and noted that the ruling dictatorship is in its final phase. By compelling the mullahs to accept the Additional Protocol, oxidize their entire stockpile of uranium, and close down all their nuclear sites, together with the West refraining from any easing of sanctions until this regime accepts the Security Council resolutions, the mullahs can be forced into a complete retreat.

Mrs. Rajavi stressed: “The same policy that has led to the inaction of U.S., EU and UN in face of mullahs’ weaponization, has also ignored the barbaric violation of human rights in Iran, and stampeded on the legal commitments and responsibilities toward Ashraf and Camp Liberty. The ghastly policy that through negating realities intends to wash the hands of murderers, i.e. Maliki and Khamenei, will surely ignite the engine of a still greater atrocity.”

She warned that the U.S. government and United Nations bear complete responsibility for anything that happens to PMOI (MEK) members in Camp Liberty. They should guarantee the safety and security of PMOI (MEK) members in Camp Liberty as demanded by their obligations.
