Expanded papers selected from DARS (Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems) 2012 http://www.dars2012.com/ held here in Baltimore last November will appear as a special issue of Robotica in August 2013.
We are opening this special issue to submissions that were not presented at DARS.
Papers should be submitted via the online submission system
and `DARS2012' should be included as a keyword during the submission/review process.
If you are interested, please email a short abstract of your planned submission to eic.robotica at gmail.com by
Friday, January 18, 2013, 11:59pm EST
and follow up with full papers through the online submission system no

Robotica is a forum for the multidisciplinary subject of robotics and encourages developments, applications and research in this important field of automation and robotics with regard to industry, health, education and economic and social aspects of relevance. The Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems special issue of Robotica seeks to stimulate, and advance the exchange of, research ideas regarding advanced distributed robotic systems, a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary research area lying at the intersection of computer science, communication and control systems, and electrical and mechanical engineering. Papers on technologies, algorithms, system architectures, and applications are encouraged from presentation.
Topics for the special issue 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
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.
