Summary This book constitutes the proceedings of the International Conference on Research and Education in Robotics, EUROBOT 2011, held in Prague, Czech Republic, in June 2011. The 28 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The papers present current basic research such as robot control and behaviour, applications of autonomous intelligent robots, and perception, processing and action; as well as educationally oriented papers addressing issues like robotics at school and at university, practical educational robotics activities, practices in educational robot design, and future pedagogical activities
