Call for Papers

The 6th Workshop on Humanoid Soccer Robots
11th IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots
Bled, Slovenia, October 26th 2011

Motivation and Objectives

Humanoid soccer has seen a lot of progress in recent years, e.g.,
with the introduction of a bipedal standard platform robot (Nao),
soccer games for larger robots (TeenSize), and the introduction
of competitions for simulated humanoid robots (3D Simulation).
The ultimate goal of Humanoid Soccer Robotics is to develop a
team of "humanoid soccer players" – i.e. robots with human-like
motion, intelligence, and skills in playing soccer. This
initiative poses a unique set of challenges to robotics, AI, and
many other fields.
The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from the
RoboCup and FIRA communities, as well as other researchers
interested in the subject.


We solicit paper submissions, optionally accompanied by a video.
Papers should be up to 6 pages in length, formatted according to
IEEE conference layout (two-column). All contributed workshop
presentations are subject to a peer review process.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Design of humanoid soccer robots
* Bipedal locomotion
* Generation of complex motions
* Control architectures
* Motion planning for soccer
* Perception for soccer robots
* Team coordination
* Skill and strategy learning
* 3D simulation of humanoid robots

Important Dates

* Paper submission: September 18th, 2011
* Acceptance notification: October 9th, 2011
* Final paper due: October 19th, 2011
* Workshop: October 26th, 2011
