Call for Papers
RoboCup International Symposium 2013
Eindhoven, The Netherlands
July 1st, 2012
http://www.robocup2013.org/
********************************************************************


OVERVIEW

The 17th annual RoboCup International Symposium will be held in conjunction with RoboCup 2013 (June 24-30). 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@Home, RoboCup@Work 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.

SUBMISSION

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 (http://www.springer.com/series/1244) and must be electronically submitted through the symposium web site:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=robocupsymposium2013
All contributions are peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers using a blind review process.

NEW TRACK

To encourage open-source releases of hard- and software components, a special track on open-source developments will be included in the 2013 RoboCup International Symposium. Contributions to this track are limited to eight pages, formatted according to LNAI requirements. They should include evidence of impact of the released component to the RoboCup community. Review of these contributions will be based on technical contribution and benefit for the RoboCup community.
