Call for Papers
RoboCup International Symposium 2010
June 25, 2010



The 14th annual RoboCup International Symposium will be held in  
conjunction with RoboCup 2010. The Symposium represents the core  
meeting for presentation and discussion of scientific contributions to  
a variety of research areas related to all RoboCup divisions  
(RoboCupSoccer, RoboCupRescue, RoboCup at Home, and RoboCupJunior). Its  
scope encompasses, but is not restricted to, research and educational  
activities within the fields of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.

Due to its interdisciplinary nature, the symposium offers a unique  
venue for exploring various and intimate connections of theory and  
practice across a wide spectrum of research fields. The experimental,  
interactive, and benchmark character of the RoboCup initiative  
presents the opportunity to disseminate novel ideas and promising  
technologies, which are rapidly adopted and field-tested by a large  
(and still growing) community.


We solicit submissions of papers reporting on high-quality, original  
research with relevance to the areas mentioned below. All researchers  
working in these areas, even if not actively participating in RoboCup  
teams, are urged to submit their work. Both papers describing real- 
world research and papers reporting theoretical results, as well as  
combinations thereof, are welcome. We also encourage the submission of  
high-quality overview articles for any field related to the general  
scope of RoboCup.

The proceedings of the RoboCup International Symposium are published  
and archived within the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial  
Intelligence (LNAI) series. Submitted papers are limited to 12 pages  
formatted according to the LNAI requirements and must be  
electronically submitted through the symposium web site. All  
contributions are peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers using a  
blind review process.
