th This volume is an edition of the papers selected from the 12 FIRA RoboWorld C- gress, held in Incheon, Korea, August 16a18, 2009. The Federation of International Robosoccer Association (FIRA a www. fira. net) is a non-profit organization, which organizes robotic competitions and meetings around the globe annually. The RoboSoccer competitions started in 1996 and FIRA was - tablished on June 5, 1997. The Robot Soccer competitions are aimed at promoting the spirit of science and technology to the younger generation. The congress is a forum in which to share ideas and future directions of technologies, and to enlarge the human networks in robotics area. The objectives of the FIRA Cup and Congress are to explore the technical dev- opment and achievement in the field of robotics, and provide participants with a robot festival including technical presentations, robot soccer competitions and exhibits - der the theme aWhere Theory and Practice Meet. a th Under the umbrella of the 12 FIRA RoboWorld Incheon Congress 2009, six int- national conferences were held for greater impact and scientific exchange: th ac 6 International Conference on Computational Intelligence, Robotics and Autonomous Systems (CIRAS) th ac 5 International Symposium on Autonomous Minirobots for Research and Edutainment (AMiRE) ac International Conference on Social Robotics (ICSR) ac International Conference on Advanced Humanoid Robotics Research (ICAHRR) ac International Conference on Entertainment Robotics (ICER) ac International Robotics Education Forum (IREF) This volume consists of selected quality papers from the six conferences.Proceedings Jong-Hwan Kim, Shuzhi Sam Ge, Prahlad Vadakkepat, Norbert Jesse, Abdullah Al Mamun, Sadasivan Puthusserypady, Ulrich RA¼ckert ...
