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 the symposium.

     * 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 un 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

DARS 2012 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); Tsukuba,
Ibaraki, Japan (2008) and Lausanne, Switzerland (2010).
