You are invited to participate in a poster session to be held during
the DARS (Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems) Symposium in Baltimore, MD
November 9-11, 2012.

The Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems deals with new methodologies,
algorithms, hardware, and system architectures to realize advanced distributed robotic systems.
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.

Each poster presenter will be provided an easel which is used to display the poster which will
have a maximum allowable size of A0 (841 × 1189 mm). Poster presenters should be at their
poster during the poster session at a minimum (conference participants will also be able to view
the posters during scheduled breaks). The poster must be set-up no later than 8:00 AM on
Friday, November 9, 2012 and should remain in place until 12:00pm on Sunday, November 11,

Interested candidates should send their poster abstracts by September 15, 2012 to
dars2012.posters at gmail.com with the subject line “DARS Poster Submission (last name of
primary author)”. Abstracts are limited to one (1) letter size paper. Submissions accepted for the
poster session must provide a version in PDF format to dars2012.posters at gmail.com with the
subject line “DARS Poster Accepted (last name of primary author)” and follow the standard style
for the layout (found here: http://www.dars2012.com/call-for-posters.html).

All contributions will be refereed. Space is limited. Poster abstracts will
be posted online, but will not be included in the proceedings. As such, each individual
participating in the poster session has the choice to register for the conference
either at the regular or the student rate.
