Frederick Crabbe, Workshop Chair, William D. Smart, Competition General Chair, and Sheila Tejada, Competition General Chair
The events of the Thirteenth AAAI Robot Competition and Exhibition, held Wednesday, July 28, 2004 as part of Nineteenth National Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-2004), included "Robot Challenge," and "Robot Rescue" competitions, and "Open Interaction Taxk" event. In addition, the exhibition was held to allow groups to demonstrate their research outside of the robot competitions. Even though participants focused on the research and work done prior to the competition and exhibition, they also discussed the performance of the systems during the contest — instances of both failure and success were heard. The future direction of each team's research was briefly mentioned as well. This workshop gave the participants an opportunity to share their research with fellow researchers and to get valuable feedback for future work. Each of the participants was invited to submit a paper to this technical report.
