FIRA Frontier Camp (FFC) 2019

Call for participation

8th – 10th August 2019, Changwon, Korea

The FIRA Frontiers Camp (FFC), to be held just prior to FIRA RoboWorld Cup, provides a unique opportunity to learn the fundamentals of robotics. The focus is on basic problem solving strategies, system development, testing, and debugging. Students will learn physics, 3D modeling, 3D printing, and software design. It also teaches students how to apply their robotics skills in other subjects such as physics and biology.


It must be stressed that the goal of the school is not to directly improve the chances of winning the following FIRA competitions. In fact, the lecturers and coaches will not be directly involved in the following FIRA competition as much as possible and will be told not to provide tricks and hints for the coming competition.

The FIRA Frontiers Camp is agnostic to the specific robot development kit and uses open-source software and hardware as much as possible.


Each participant must submit their own qualification material in English. Please provide a 1 – 2 page description of your previous experience, your current robot system and development environment, and your interest in robotics. In addition, participant personal data, such as name, school, address, phone, email, etc, is also included.


Submit your material as a pdf file to the Christine Kim ([email protected] )
