Publications

SPL teams publish papers in high-quality venues, including the RoboCup Symposium, each year. The SPL has used humanoid Nao robots since 2008 and hence publications are separated around this time frame. Although many of the same people took part, publications before this apply to four-legged league. Publications are collected below under the following headings:

Selected representative publications from the league

As there are numerous papers, below are a few representative publications for our league.
