For RoboCup Participants

The RoboCup Symposium is a primary venue for presentation and discussion of scientific contributions to a variety of research areas related to all RoboCup divisions (RoboCup Soccer, RoboCup Rescue, RoboCup@Home, RoboCup@Work, and RoboCupJunior). Its scope includes, but is not restricted to, research and educational activities in robotics and artificial intelligence. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, the Symposium offers a unique venue for exploring both theory and practice in wide spectrum of research fields. The experimental, interactive, and benchmark character of the RoboCup initiative presents an opportunity to disseminate novel ideas and promising technologies, rapidly adopted and field-tested by a large, and still growing, community.

The Symposium is co-located every year with the worldwide competition and its proceedings have been published every year by Springer-Verlag’s Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence.
