Dear Robothon® Community!
We have great news:
In response to the postponement of automatica 2020, automatica sprint will premiere in a hybrid format (in-person and online) at the Munich Convention Center from 22-24 June 2021.
This event is a contemporary response to the current pandemic situation hosted by the same organizers of the original automatica, Messe München.
The Robothon® itself will take place on-site at the premises of Messe München to ensure a fair competition and will conclude with an award ceremony on Thursday, 24 June 2021.
Be assured, appropriate hygiene measures will be taken and checked regularly!
On behalf of Messe München, automatica and MSRM/TUM, we would like to renew our invitation to you.
