Workshop Scope

RoboCup was founded in 1997 with the main goal of “developing by 2050 a Robot Soccer team capable of winning against the human team champion of the FIFA World Cup”. In the next years, RoboCup proposed several soccer platforms that have been established as standard platforms for robotics research. This domain demonstrated the capability of capturing key aspects of complex real world problems, stimulating the development of a wide range of technologies, including the design of electrical-mechanical-computational integrated techniques for autonomous robots. After more than 15 years of RoboCup, nowadays robot soccer represents only a part of the available platforms. RoboCup encompasses more than 15 major leagues that, in addition to Soccer, cover Rescue (Robots and Simulation), @Home (assistive robots in home environments), Festo Logistics League and @Work (Industrial environments), as well as RoboCupJunior leagues for kids. These domains offer a wide range of platforms for researchers with the potential to speed up the developments in the mobile robotics field. This workshop aims to discuss the advances of the electrical, mechanical and computational aspects of robotics based on RoboCup platforms.

Topics of interest

This workshop aims to present the state-of-the-art concerning Robotics and Artificial Intelligence developments based on RoboCup leagues platforms. All papers are required to demonstrate strong relationship with RoboCup platforms. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

(*) Specific contributions on RoboCup@home are encouraged to be submitted to the RoboCup@home workshop in ICAR.
