Manufacturing industries are changing rapidly towards more flexibility and autonomy. The RoboCup Logistics League (RCLL) and RoboCup@Work tackle research questions in this domain focusing on automated reasoning and planning, and mobile manipulation respectively. However, future scenarios will require both aspects (and more) and will most likely operate with more heterogeneous systems. In this paper, we propose a cross-over challenge to foster closer cooperation among the two leagues to address these challenges. We outline four integration milestones and propose a specific scenario and task for the first milestone. The effort is driven by stakeholders of both leagues.

How is it possible to meet the government's 2035-goals whilst continuously supplying district heating in Denmark at low costs and at a high security of supply?
This semester project analyses the possibilities of replacing the in-renewable heat production from the coal-fired CHP production unit FV07 at Fynsværket, with large industrial heat pumps.
When using heat pumps as the only supply unit, regulatory energy is required to maintain the security of supply. This project analyses the possibilities of using a heat storage facility to supply the district heating in times where the electricity price is _ high. To analyse the scenario, a MATLAB model is set up, minimising the hourly production costs and determining the minimum heat pump capacity and storage capacity needed to meet the demand in Fjernvarme Fyn's supply area.
Legislative and financial aspects of shutting down CHP plants and integrating heat pumps are considered. As the district heating production becomes reliant on the electricity production, the overall consumer costs in a heat pump based network will fluctuate with respect to the Nordpool spot price. This could set the foundation for making the district heating sector hourly charged, allocating the demand and lowering the price. Furthermore, the model concludes that the overall costs in the heat pump scenario becomes significantly lower than in the current network, as the fuel costs, including the CO2-quotas, are eliminated.

China is a fantastic country with a fantastic culture, but it can sometimes be a difficult or uncomfortable place for the unaccustomed traveler. This document is the result of an accumulation of lessons learned over many trips to China. It is not my intention to rob anyone of a great story or life lesson, but having learned everything on this list the hard way, I hope this advice can be useful.
As a disclaimer to the reader, the sole intention of this document is to help foreign travelers prepare for living in China, especially those who have never visited China before. It is not my intention to pass any judgment on China, Chinese people, Chinese culture, or Chinese institutions, and I encourage you to consider the contents of this document with the same spirit. I also encourage you to spend your time in China with an adventurous spirit. Explore, seek adventure, and spend as much time as you can with local Chinese people. Enjoy the food, the culture, the fantastic transportation system, and keep an open mind :).
If anything in this document seems incorrect or inappropriate, I would greatly appreciate any feedback you might have - feel free to send me an email. Finally, some of this information (e.g. visas) is specific to U.S. citizens. I apologize for being less inclusive of readers from other nations, but I am an American and thus my experiences come entirely from a U.S. perspective.
Voor seminarie kregen wij de opdracht een moirépatroon op bestelling te maken. We moesten aanvankelijk het niveaulijnpatroon vinden waarvan de glanskrommen afgeronde vierkanten voorstellen. Gezien we hier vrij snel in geslaagd waren, hebben we de opdracht uitgebreid. Ons uiteindelijke doel werd het maken van vier moirépatronen, met name de vier symbolen van het kaartspel. In dit verslag staat stap voor stap uitgeschreven hoe we tot dit resultaat zijn gekomen, van functies met twee variabelen tot het uiteindelijke plotten van de moirépatronen met het computeralgebrapakket Sage.
