Autonomous Robots and Multirobot Systems (ARMS) 2011

A full-day workshop to be held as part of AAMAS-2011
and to accompany the AAMAS Special Track on Robotics

May 2 2011, Taipei, Taiwan
Website: http://www.alg.ewi.tudelft.nl/arms2011/


The Autonomous Robots and Multirobot workshop aims to supply roboticists and agents researchers a chance to meet and interact, by offering a forum where researchers in this area can present promising innovative research directions, and new results. The workshop is coordinated and associated with the AAMAS robotics track.
