The RoboCup Soccer Simulation 3D Competition provides a great opportunity to
experiment with humanoid robots without the need for investing in 
robot's hardware. It
facilitates experimenting with different learning and optimization 
techniques by providing
a simulated environment.

The top three teams
from RoboCup 2011 (UT Austin Villa, CIT3D and Apollo3D) are 
automatically qualified
after pre-registering their teams and submitting an appropriate Team 
Description Paper (TDP).
The other 25 teams will be selected through a qualification process.

different from the rules of
2011 competitions.

Good luck
