============================================================================== 

   The 9th Workshop on Humanoid Soccer Robots
   IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots
   November 18th 2014, Madrid, Spain
   http://www.humanoidsoccer.org/ws14
============================================================================== 


* 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 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We solicit submissions of original, previously unpublished research papers,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: October 5th, 2014
  - Acceptance notification: October 19th, 2014
-Final paper: November 2nd, 2014
  - Workshop day: November 18th, 2014
