The theme of the 16th International Robot Olympiad has been released.  It will be “Robot: Stop Global Warming”.  This event is to be held November 5th-9th, in the Shijingshan District, Beijing, China, and will run concurrently with the19th FIRA RoboWorld Cup.

John Payne‘s insight:

The setting, Beijing in November (during the heating season), may add an all too poignant note of urgency to this theme.  Here’s hoping the kids come up with solutions that can really make a difference!  (Note: this is linked to the website for the 2013 IRO Competition, which was held in Denver, Colorado. A comparable website for the 2014 event does not yet appear to be available.)
