RSS 2015 Workshop Principles of Multi-Robot Systems

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS for the Poster Session

- Extended abstract submission deadline: May 1st, 2015
- Notification of acceptance:  May 10th, 2015
- Workshop: July 16th, 2015

The objective of this workshop is to give in-depth overviews of several 
areas of interest related to the field of multi-robot systems. In 
particular, we aim at providing a set of methodologies that can define 
the common background for researchers involved in the several areas that 
constitute the multi-robot systems community. While many workshops are 
narrowly focused on highly specialized topics, the intent of this 
workshop is to provide insight on a broad range of topics within 
multi-robot systems so that ideas and approaches can be shared across 
the varied subfields.

Researchers interested in multi-robot systems represent an inherently 
diverse community since several competences are needed in this field, 
ranging from control systems to mechanical design, estimation, 
perception, planning, and interaction, just to list a few. This causes, 
in general, a lack of a common background among multi-robot systems 
researchers, that represents an obstacle for dialogue and interchange, 
subsequently slowing down the development of the overall field.

The main objective of this workshop is then in contributing to the 
definition of this common background. For this purpose, each talk will 
represent a seminar that will aim at providing a comprehensive overview 
of a specific topic. The intended audience is constituted of researchers 
that work (or are starting to work) in the field of multi- robot 
systems, and that are not necessarily expert in the topics that will be 
touched by each talk.
