The 23rd Annual RoboCup International Symposium will be held in conjunction with RoboCup 2019 at the International Convention Centre Sydney, Australia. We call for submissions of papers reporting innovative, original research with relevance to areas of robotics and artificial intelligence as listed below. Within the described scope of topics we also encourage submissions of high-quality overview articles, papers describing real-world research, and papers reporting theoretical results. Researchers are invited to submit their work independently of whether they participate in the RoboCup competitions or have a RoboCup team. In addition to the main track with regular papers there will be a special development track on hardware development, software frameworks and open-source development.
|Submission of full papers||8 April, 2019|
|Notification to authors||21 May, 2019|
|Submission of camera-ready copies||4 June, 2019|
|RoboCup 2019 Symposium||8 July 2019|
All papers will be peer-reviewed, and evaluated by members of the senior program committee. The proceedings of the RoboCup International Symposium will be published and archived within the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) series by Springer-Verlag after the conference. Papers should be formatted following the LNAI author guidelines and must be electronically submitted through the EasyChair electronic submission system which is linked to the symposium website.
Regular papers are limited to 12 pages and papers of the development track should adhere to the limit of 8 pages.
Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
The development track encourages reports on innovative hardware developments, software frameworks and open-source releases of software components. Review of papers describing these contributions will be based on technical aspects and benefit to the practice of communities working in the above fields in general and RoboCup in particular.

Please direct all general registration questions and inquiries via email to April.RoboCup@gmail.com. Please direct any questions regarding the distribution of letters of invitation via email to email@example.com.
We are using a web-based system
Only qualified teams can register. Please wait until your league qualifies the teams and your team will be available in RegOnline. There is a registration code necessary which we will send to the team leaders of the qualified teams.
Registration proceeds separately for each qualified team and for the team leader and team members. When registering a team, you need to include the information for a "point of contact" for the team. Please note, though, that the person serving as point of contact is not registered at that time, but only the team is registered. In addition to registering your team, all team leaders and team members need to register as Faculty/Staff or Student participants.
Registrations are only complete when payment is received. Credit card payments are immediately validated. We strongly recommend payment by credit card.
The other available method of payment takes time. No registration is considered complete until full payment is received.
The invitation letter will be sent by email to the participants at our very earliest convenience after the registration is complete. Please wait patiently for the payment to be complete. If you still have questions, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is possible for both faculty and students to register as Symposium Only participants. Invitation letters to Symposium Only participants are issued to those with accepted publications therein, only.
On the registration web site, choose “Symposium Only Faculty/Staff'' or ''Symposium Only Student''.
|“Symposium Only” Registration:|
All registered team members are automatically admitted to the Symposium. Team members do not need to register separately for the symposium.
Our registration web site offers the following payment options:
Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard, AMEX)
This is the preferred method.
Wire Transfer (USD)
Available only until june 7, 2019.
Wire transfer should be used in exceptional cases only, and if credit card payment is not possible. Registration will be considered complete only if the amount due is received in its totality in us dollars in the bank account on or before the respective date (e.g., April 30th, for early registration). It is your responsibility to ensure that this will be the case. In order to help expedite the payment process, we ask that you please send your wire transfer transaction information to email@example.com. Please note that wire transfer payments will be deactivated after June 7, 2019.
Participants from some countries do require a visa for Australia
For those who need a visa, here is the policy:
An Invitation Letter will be sent to a team member once the team registration and the team member registration have been completed, i.e., payment has been received. There will be no exceptions.
