*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).
