Dear Roboticists.

I would like to draw your attention on the upcoming paper submission
deadline for DARS 2014.

Best regards.



International Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic
Systems (DARS 2014)

November 2-5, 2014, Daejeon Convention Center, Daejeon, Korea

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 a single-track, 3-days symposium.
DARS 2014 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); Lausanne, Switzerland (2010);
Baltimore, Maryland, USA (2012).

*** Plenary Speakers

"Design and navigation of robots that role, run and fly"

* Jonathan How (MIT, USA)
"Decentralized autonomy: planning and learning"

* Dong Sun (City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong)
