Networked Multi-Agent Systems: From Theory to Practice 

A half-day workshop to be held on Monday, May 6, 2pm - 6:15pm at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, Kongresszentrum Karlsruhe in room SR2.10, Karlsruhe, Germany. 


Organized by Nora Ayanian, Stephanie Gil, and Daniela Rus

The goal of this workshop is to discuss recent and targeted advances in networked multi-agent system capabilities, identify the major needs and challenges in translating these capabilities to practical arenas, and encourage an exchanging of ideas from robotics and communication experts to tackle these challenges towards development of high performing and reliable networked multi-agent systems for the real-world.
