DARS 2010
2010 International Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems
Lausanne, Swiyzerland
Nov. 1-3, 2010

The goal of the Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems is 
to exchange and stimulate research ideas to realize advanced distributed 
robotic systems. Distributed robotics is a rapidly growing, 
interdisciplinary research area lying at the intersection of computer 
science, communication and control systems, and electrical and 
mechanical engineering. Technologies, algorithms, system architectures, 
and applications will be presented and discussed during a single-track, 
3-days symposium.

DARS 2010 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). 
Successive editions happened in Karlsruhe, Germany (1998); Knoxville, 
Tennessee, USA (2000); Fukuoka, Japan (2002); Toulouse, France (2004); 
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA (2006); and Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan (2008). 

Accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings of DARS 2010, which 
will be published as a monograph by Springer Verlag. A special issue 
with the best papers in a top robotics journal is currently under 

Topics include but are not limited to:
• Architectures for teams of robots
• Self-organizing and self-assembling robotic systems
• Swarm robotic systems
• Hybrid symbiotic teams (humans and robots, animals and robots)
• Learning and adaptation in teams of robots
• Modular robotics
• Localization and navigation in multi-robot systems
• Multi-robot and multi-vehicle motion coordination
• Distributed cooperative perception
• Distributed cooperative action
• Distributed control and planning
• Control issues in multi-robot systems
• Performance metrics for robot teams
• Distributed decision making
• Distributed task allocation and execution
• Sensor and actuator networks
• Networking issues in multi-robot systems
• Wireless and robotic sensor networks
• Multi-robot applications in exploration, inspection, coverage, search 
and rescue, service, environmental monitoring, etc.
