The 5th Workshop on Humanoid Soccer Robots  

 Call for Papers

Motivation and objectives

Humanoid soccer has seen a lot of progress recently, e.g., with the introduction of a bipedal standard platform robot, soccer games for larger robots, and the introduction of competitions for simulated humanoid robots. 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. This workshop will be held for the fifth time in conjunction with the Humanoids conference. It will bring 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, both of which will be reviewed. Papers should be up to 6 pages in length, formatted according to IEEE conference layout (two-column). Accepted papers and videos will be assembled into proceedings and distributed in CD format at the workshop. If there is sufficient interest, we will pursue publication of a special journal issue to include the best papers. In the past, special issues appeared in IJHR and RAS.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
