              CALL FOR PAPERS
       Special Track on Multi-Robotics
AAMAS, the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous 
agents and multi-agent systems, will feature a Special Track on 
Multi-Robotics in its 2008 edition, which will be held 12-16 May 2008 in 
Estoril, Portugal.

Papers on theory and applications concerning teams of multiple robots
are welcome, namely those focusing on real robots interacting with their
surrounding environments. The goal is to foster interaction between
researchers on multi-agent and multi-robot systems, so as to provide a
cradle for cross-fertilization of concepts from both fields.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  - cooperative perception
  - cooperative localization
  - middleware for multi-robot systems
  - multi-robot mapping and localization
  - networked robots
  - formal models of multi-robot plans
