The 5th Workshop on Humanoid Soccer Robots  


Humanoid soccer has seen a lot of progress recently, e.g., with the introduction of a bipedal
standard platform robot, soccer games for larger robots, and the introduction of competitions
for simulated humanoid robots. The ultimate goal of Humanoid Soccer Robotics is to develop
a team of "humanoid soccer players" – i.e. robots with human-like motion, intelligence, and
skills in playing soccer. This initiative poses a unique set of challenges to robotics, AI and
many other fields. The workshop will bring together researchers from the RoboCup and FIRA
communities, as well as other researchers interested in the subject. The program consists of
one invited talk, nine oral presentations, a poster session, and a panel discussion. All
accepted presentations have been subject to a peer review process. Covered topics include
bipedal locomotion, generation of complex motions, control architectures, motion planning,
visual perception of the game situation, team coordination, skill and strategy learning, and
game monitoring.
