==============================================================================
   The 8th Workshop on Humanoid Soccer Robots
   IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots
   October 15th 2013, Atlanta, GA
   http://www.humanoidsoccer.org/ws13
==============================================================================

Motivation:

Humanoid soccer has seen impressive progress in recent years. Bipedal 
standard
or open platforms (Nao, DARwIn-OP, NimbRo-OP) make soccer robots 
accessible to
many research groups, advanced 3D simulation games make the investigation of
team play with complex humanoid robots possible, and soccer games for larger
robots are a step towards playing with humans. The ultimate goal of this
initiative is to develop a team of humanoid soccer players - i.e. robots 
with
human-like awareness of the game situation, motion skills, and cooperation
abilities. This poses a unique set of challenges to robotics, AI, and other
fields.


Objective:

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from the RoboCup and FIRA
communities, as well as other researchers interested in the subject. The 
full-
day program will consist of several invited talks, contributed 
presentations,
and a panel discussion.


Call for papers:

We solicit submissions of original, previously unpublished research papers,
optionally accompanied by a video. Papers should be up to 6 pages in 
length,
formatted according to IEEE conference layout (two-column). Accepted papers
and videos will be available online.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Design of humanoid robots
* Bipedal locomotion
* Dynamic full-body motions
* Control architectures
* Motion and action planning
* Perception of the game situation
* Team coordination
* Skill and strategy learning
* 3D simulation of humanoid robots


Important dates:

* Paper submission: August 31st, 2013
* Acceptance notification: September 15th, 2013
* Final paper: September 30th, 2013
* Workshop day: October 15th, 2013

the workshop organizers:
* Sven Behnke, University of Bonn
* Daniel D. Lee, University of Pennsylvania
* Klaus Dorer, Hochschule Offenburg
* Subramanian Ramamoorthy, University of Edinburgh
