  • Collects presentations at the RoboCup 2006 International Symposium, held in Bremen, Germany, in June 2006
  • Presents 22 revised full papers and 36 revised short papers together with two award-winning papers
  • Serves as a valuable source of reference and inspiration for those interested in robotics or distributed intelligence

This book constitutes the 10th official archival publication devoted to RoboCup. It documents the achievements presented at the RoboCup 2006 International Symposium, held in Bremen, Germany, in June 2006, in conjunction with the RoboCup Competition.

The 22 revised full papers and 36 revised poster papers presented together with two award-winning papers went through two rounds of reviewing and improvement, and were carefully selected from 143 submissions.

The book provides a valuable source of reference and inspiration for R&D professionals active or interested in robotics or distributed intelligence and is mandatory reading for the rapidly growing RoboCup community.
