The event was organised by the International Youth Robot Association (IYRC) in collaboration with the Centre for Youth Science and Technology Development (under the HCM City Youth Union).

The contestants, who are primary and secondary school students, were selected from the best in the provincial and municipal Robot Talents Contests (Robotacon), which were held nationwide during last April and May.

They competed in computer programming and robot control in seven individual and team events, focusing on material recycling, rescuing forests and oceans, football and creation.
