Welcome to the official website of the National Robotics Festival 2018. The next edition of this event will take place in Torres Vedras, from April 25th to April 29th, 2018. It is promoted by São Gonçalo School, Autarchy of Torres Vedras and the Portuguese Robotics Society in partnership with Lisbon Institute of Engineering (ISEL), Polytechnic Institute of Leiria (IPL), Ministry of Education and the National Association of ITC Teachers.

The National Robotics Festival promotes Science and Technology among young people, teachers, researchers and the general public, through autonomous robot competitions. This event takes place in a different city every year.

The National Robotics Festival 2018 includes the IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions (ICARSC 2018), where national and foreign researchers in the area of Robotics are given the opportunity to present their latest research results in their area.

Robotic competitions are designed to promote innovative and enterprising spirit in children and young people through active teaching methods, as well as the acquisition of transversal competences. These competitions are also important to disseminate this area to the public in general.

In the National Robotics Festival, the Portuguese teams are qualified for Robocup, a world-class robotics competition that brings together the best teams in each country, and in which Portugal has already a track record of good results.
