    Seattle, USA

    Please visit:

    The RoboCup International Symposium will be held in conjunction with
    the RoboCup 2001 Competitions and Demonstrations as the core meeting
    for the presentation of scientific contributions in areas of relevance
    to RoboCup. Its scope is mainly within the fields of Artificial
    Intelligence and Robotics with a broad range of areas of interest,

    * Sensor-Motor Control
    * Vision and Image-Processing
    * Self-localisation and Navigation
    * Planning, Reasoning, and Modeling
    * Learning and Adaptive Systems
    * Multi-Agent Systems
    * Multi-Robot Systems
    * Co-operation and Collaboration
    * Simulation and Visualisation
    * Realtime and Concurrent Programming
    * Embedded and Mobile Hardware
    * Non-conventional actuation systems, especially artificial muscles
    * Next generation sensors for robotics
    * Mobile Robots and Humanoids
    * Search and rescue robots
    * Disaster rescue information systems
    * Wireless Communication and Mobile Computing
    * System integration and Software-Engineering
    * Robotics and Science Education
    * Computer and Robotic Entertainment
    * Commentators, Speech Synthesis and Natural Language Generation
    Submissions to the RoboCup International Symposium do not necessarily
    need to be linked to an active participation in the RoboCup games and
    competitions. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, the RoboCup
    International Symposium provides an excellent opportunity to introduce
    and spread novel ideas and approaches into various scientific
    disciplines. The experimental character of the RoboCup games gives in
    addition the possibility to get novel ideas and approaches adopted and
    field-tested by a constantly growing community. Papers describing
    real-world research as well as papers dealing with strong theoretical
    results are both welcome. We also encourage the submission of
    high-quality overview articles for any field related to the scope of
    RoboCup, especially the ones listed above.

    The proceedings of RoboCup are published within the Springer
    LNAI-series. All submissions to the International Symposium enter the
    selection process for the RoboCup "Scientific Challenge Award", which
    recognizes outstanding research within a field related to the scope of

    Important dates
