The events of the Twelfth AAAI Robot Competition and Exhibition, held August 9-15, 2003 as part of Eighteenth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-2003), included "Robot Rescue" and "Robot Host" competitions, and "Robot Challenge" event. In addition, the exhibition was held to allow groups to demonstrate their research outside of the robot competitions. Even though participants focused on the research and work done prior to the competition and exhibition, they also discussed the performance of the systems during the contest -- instances of both failure and success were heard. The future direction of each team's research was briefly mentioned as well. This workshop gave the participants an opportunity to share their research with fellow researchers and to get valuable feedback for future work. Each of the participants was invited to submit a paper to this technical report.
