The Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems 
dealswith new methodologies, alogrithms, hardwares, system 
architectures to realize advanced distributed robotic systems.
All interested researchers and engineers are invited to  
participate in DARS 2008 for presentation and discussion.
Excellent papers of the conference will be published in a book, 
by Springer.

The International Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic 
Systems successfully took place in 1992, 1994, and 1996 in Japan, 
in 1998 in Germany (Karlsruhe), in 2000 in USA (Knoxville,
Tennessee), in 2002 in Japan (Fukuoka), in 2004 in France 
(Toulouse) and in 2006 in USA (St. Paul, Minnesota). DARS 2008 
will be held in Japan.

Topics include but are not limited to:

Architectures for teams of robots
Ambient Intelligence
Biologically inspired systems
Control issues in multi-robot systems
Distributed decision making/problem solving
