General Info

(英文の下に和文続く)

Welcome to Japan League VIQRC 2023-2024 FULL VOLUME!

After registering for the league, please proceed to "Register Each Session" to sign up for the ranking sessions and the finals session you wish to participate in, and make the payment for the registration fee.

The purpose of organizing a league rather than tournaments in Japan is to provide VIQRC teams with more opportunities to participate in competitive events. Previously, tournaments were primarily held with the aim of qualifying for the World Championship, and these tournaments took place only once per season.
By adopting a league format, not only teams aiming for the World Championship but also teams not specifically targeting World Championship qualification will have the opportunity to participate in a greater number of domestic competitions.

Ranking Session: 
Teams aiming for participation in the World Championship need to take part in the Finals Session and achieve excellent results. However, in the regular league format, all teams are ranked based on the number of matches played, with teams that have participated in over 60% of the total matches being ranked higher than those who have participated in less than 60% of the total matches. Only the top-ranked teams qualify for participation in the Finals Session. At the current stage, regional ranking sessions are not being conducted, and the number of registered teams does not exceed the number of teams that can participate in the Finals Session. Therefore, the majority of teams aiming for participation in the World Championship should be able to participate in the Finals Session (as of July 13, 2023). However, if the number of teams aiming for the World Championship exceeds expectations, the teams participating in the Finals Session will be determined according to the rules set by the REC Foundation.

Finals Session: 
On March 3rd (Sunday), the finals for both the elementary school teams and the junior high school teams will be held simultaneously. Originally, robot skills were planned to be judged based on the rankings session results, and there were no plans to conduct matches on the day of the competition. However, as the number of teams aiming for participation in the world competition this season has increased to 26, all teams will now have the opportunity to participate in the Finals Session. However, due to the presence of teams residing outside the Kanto region and teams that faced operational challenges in participating in the rankings session at their schools, on March 3rd, we will conduct a rankings session, including skills matches, in the morning, and the Finals Session will take place in the afternoon. Both the rankings session and the Finals Session will be held on the same day (changed to January 22nd).

Eng. Notebook for the Finals Session: 
Please submit a scanned (or photographed for duplication) Engineering Notebook by 11:59 AM on the 22nd (Thursday). Submissions after this deadline will not be accepted until March 3rd, so please be aware of this.
Starting from the afternoon of the 22nd (Thursday), specialized judges for the Engineering Notebook will begin evaluations, taking 10 days to assess each notebook individually. We will decide the nominees for each award by the morning of March 3rd.
On the day of the event, March 3rd, the evaluation of morning interviews will be combined with the selection of award-winning teams in the afternoon.
However, there's an important announcement!
You don't need to wait scanning the Engineering Notebooks until the final activity day of this week. Many teams are likely to improve their robots over the remaining 10 days. Any additional content added to the Engineering Notebook, such as enhancements to the robot or programming and changes in strategy, will be considered in the evaluation until March 3rd (Sunday).
So, please make sure to bring your Engineering Notebook on the event day! Don't forget.
To submit your Engineering Notebook(s), please upload it through your team’s account on robotevents.com. (updated on Feb 19)

ようこそ、Japan League VIQRC 2023-2024 FULL VOLUMEへ!

リーグへの登録の後、次は【Register Each Session】より、参加をご希望するランキンセッション及びファイナルズセッションを登録して、参加料金をお支払いください。

日本でトーナメントではなくリーグを開催する目的は、VIQRCチームに競技イベントへの参加機会をより多く提供することです。以前は、主に世界大会予選を目指すトーナメントが開催され、シーズンに一度しか競技大会が行われませんでした。リーグ形式を採用することで、世界大会を目指すチームだけでなく、世界大会を目指さないチームも国内の大会により多く参加する機会が与えられます。

ランキングセッション:
世界大会出場を目指すチームは、ファイナルズセッションに参加し、優秀な成績を残す必要があります。ただし、通常リーグの場合、すべてのチームは試合数に基づいてランク付けされ、総試合数の60%以上参加したチームが、総試合数60%未満のチームよりも上位にランク付けされ、上位のチームだけがファイナルズセッションの参加資格を獲得できます。ただし、現段階では、地域別のランキングセッションが行われないこと、また登録チーム数が、ファイナルズセッションに参加できるチーム数を満たしていないこともあり、世界大会出場を目指すチームのほとんどが、ファイナルズセッションに参加できるはずです(2023年6月26日現在)。 ただし、世界大会を目指すチーム数が予想を上回る場合、ファイナルズセッションへの参加チームは、REC Foundationのルールに従って決定されます。

ファイナルズセッション:
3月3日(日)は、小学生チームと中学生チームのファイナルを同時に開催します。ロボットスキルは、ランキングセッション成績を元に審査され、試合当日は行わない予定でしたが、今シーズン、世界大会出場を目指すのは26チームになったため、全てのチームがファイナルズセッションに出場できることになりました。 ただし、関東エリア以外に住むチームや、学校の運営上なかなかランキングセッションに出場することができなかったチームも混在するため、3月3日は、午前中にスキルスマッチを含めたランキングセッションを開催し、午後にファイナルズセッションを行います。ランキングセッションとファイナルズセッションの両方を同日に開催します(1月22日に変更)。

エンジニアリングノートブックについて:
22日(木曜日)の午前11:59までに、スキャン(もしくは撮影による複写)したエンジニアリングノートブックの提出をお願いいたします。この期限を過ぎると、3月3日までの提出は受け付けられませんので、ご注意ください。
22日(木曜日)の午後からは、エンジニアリングノートブック専門のジャッジによる審査が始まり、10日間かけて一冊ずつ評価されます。3月3日の午前中には各アワードを受賞する該当チームが選ばれます。
3月3日大会当日には、午前中のインタビューの評価とともに、その日の午後に各アワードの受賞チームが決定します。 
ここで重要なお知らせがあります!
スキャンは、今週の最終活動日まで待つ必要はありません。なぜなら、多くのチームが残りの10日間でロボットを改良する可能性が高いからです。スキャン後も、3月3日(日曜日)までの期間において、ロボットやプログラミングの改良、作戦の変更など、新たにエンジニアリングノートブックに加えられた内容も審査の基準に含まれます。
ですので、当日も必ずエンジニアリングノートブックをお持ちください!お忘れなく。
エンジニアリングノートブックの提出は、robotevents.comの各チームのアカウントよりアップロードしてください。(2月19日に更新)
