We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the next DARS in 2008 in Lausanne.
The goal of the Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems is to exchange and stimulate research ideas to realize advanced distributed robotic systems. Technologies, algorithms, and system architectures will be presented and discussed during the symposium.
DARS 2006 will build upon past successes and provide an exciting environment for researchers to present and discuss their novel theoretical results, implementations, and applications. DARS successfully took place in 1992, 1994, and 1996 in Japan (Riken, Wako), in 1998 in Germany (Karlsruhe), in 2000 in Knoxville, Tennessee (USA), in 2002 at Fukuoka (Japan), and in 2004 at LAAS, Toulouse, France.
DARS 2006 will be held in the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota, in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science building.
Accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings of DARS 2006, which will be published as a monograph by Springer-Verlag.
Topics include but are not limited to:
|Architectures for teams of robots||Distributed robotic systems|
|Biologically inspired systems||Human and robot interaction|
|Learning and adaptation in teams of robots||Cooperation of multiple robots|
|Multi-robot applications in exploration, search and rescue, service, etc||Control issues in multi-robot systems|
|Multi-robot motion coordination||Distributed/cooperative perception|
|Performance metrics for robot teams||Distributed decision making|
|Robot societies||Distributed planning|
|Self-organizing robotic systems||Distributed task execution|
|Sensor networks||Swarm robotics|
Submit papers of not over 10 pages by January 22, 2006
The deadline is January 22, 2006 at 11:59pm Hawaii time.
