   The 9th Workshop on Humanoid Soccer Robots
   IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots
   November 18th 2014, Madrid, Spain

* Motivation:

Humanoid soccer has seen impressive progress in recent years. Bipedal 
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 
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

* Objective:

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from the RoboCup and 
communities, as well as other researchers interested in the subject. The 
day program will consist of 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We solicit submissions of original, previously unpublished research papers,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 
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: October 5th, 2014
  - Acceptance notification: October 19th, 2014
-Final paper: November 2nd, 2014
  - Workshop day: November 18th, 2014

* Further information and paper submission:
