[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Papers: RoboCup International Symposium 2018

Dirk Holz-2
RoboCup International Symposium 2018
Call for Papers


The 22nd Annual RoboCup International Symposium will be held in conjunction
with RoboCup 2018. The Symposium is a primary venue for presentation and
discussion of scientific contributions to a variety of research areas
related to all RoboCup divisions (RoboCup Soccer, RoboCup Rescue, RoboCup
at Home, RoboCup at Work, and RoboCup Junior). Its scope includes, but is
not restricted to, research and educational activities in robotics and
artificial intelligence.

Due to its interdisciplinary nature, the Symposium offers a unique venue
for exploring both theory and practice in wide spectrum of research fields.
The experimental, interactive, and benchmark character of the RoboCup
initiative presents an opportunity to disseminate novel ideas and promising
technologies, rapidly adopted and field-tested by a large, and still
growing, community.


We solicit submissions of papers reporting high-quality, original research
with relevance to robotics and artificial intelligence; topics of interest
include, but are not limited to, the AREAS OF INTEREST listed below.
Researchers in these areas, even if not actively participating in RoboCup
teams, are urged to submit their work. We welcome both papers describing
real- world research and papers reporting theoretical results, as well as
combinations thereof. 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 (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.springer.com_series_1244&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=4KElvHXnHBSzYClnt9lUGRP30E2yYsGFW-CV7Bvb8-E&s=-HE-78aXhKxkWkpyWkCG2xoGl2xrbSliCyK2ei1jiLQ&e=) and must be
electronically submitted through the symposium website: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=4KElvHXnHBSzYClnt9lUGRP30E2yYsGFW-CV7Bvb8-E&s=8Bl3Ngk6NmC9RhMofks24lGa-P_EMBuxa65hftHcNnI&e=.

All contributions are peer-reviewed by a number of reviewers, and evaluated
by members of the senior program committee.


To encourage open-source release of hardware and software components, a
special track on open-source development will be part of the 2018 RoboCup
International Symposium. Contributions to this track are limited to eight
pages, formatted according to LNAI requirements. Contributions should
include evidence of impact of the released component on the RoboCup
community. Review of these contributions will be based on technical
contribution and benefit to the RoboCup community.
