The 2nd Workshop on Swarming in Natural and Engineered Systems will
be held at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia from May
16-17. See http://www.swarms.org/workshop/2007 for more information.
The workshop brings together experts in artificial intelligence,
control theory, robotics, systems engineering and biology with the
goal of understanding swarming behaviors in nature and applications
of biologically-inspired models of swarm behaviors to large networked
groups of autonomous vehicles. We are specifically interested in
developing a framework and methodology for the analysis of swarming
behavior in biology and the synthesis of bio-inspired swarming
behavior for engineered systems. The workshop will have three
overarching themes. (1) Scaling of group behaviors with numbers of
individuals and the size of individuals in nature and the design of
scalable algorithms for networked vehicles. (2) The role of
selfishness in aggregation and the implication for robotic swarms.
(3) Decentralized approaches to estimation and control for
applications beyond navigation.
The single-track workshop will feature invited talks, short oral
presentations, poster presentations of research results, and
The workshop is limited to 60 participants. Please contact the
organizers at swarmsworkshop_at_grasp.upenn.edu as soon as possible
if you are interested in attending. If you are interested in
presenting and submitting a paper for the proceedings, please email a
short abstract (text only, no attachments) to this address.
