The FIRA RoboWorld Congress is hosted together with the renowned FIRA RoboWorld Cup, 18 ~ 20 August 2009, the first robotic soccer competition in the world, which started in 1996. The theme of the FIRA congress is "Where Theory and Practice Meet" which genuinely reflects its tradition of combining real-life robotic competitions and high quality presentations of scientific research in robotics, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
The Steering Committee of FIRA RoboWorld Congress and the Executive Committee of RoboWorld Cup are devoted to provide a common platform where scientists, academic researchers, robotic engineers and students meet to share their pioneering works and insights, to strive for unraveling challenges, and to propel the community to the next level of
excitement, breakthrough and vision in the robotics community.
The conference welcomes paper submissions from researchers, practitioners and students, and will cover myriad topics in intelligent control, autonomous systems and various robots including soccer robots, edutainment robots, service robots, personal robots and humanoid robots for HuroCup.
