IEEE RAS Summer School on Multi-Robot Systems (MRSSS 2016)

6-10 June 2016

General enquiries: mrsss2016 at googlegroups.com


The IEEE RAS Summer School on Multi-Robot Systems (MRSSS 2016) is a new
summer school to be held at National University of Singapore over five days
in tropical Singapore, from 6-10 June 2016. MRSSS 2016 is jointly organized
by the National University of Singapore (NUS), the Institute for Infocomm
Research (I2R) from the Agency for Science, Technology, and Research
(A*STAR) of Singapore, the Singapore University of Technology and Design
(SUTD), and the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Multi-Robot Systems, and
supported and funded by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS).

Multi-robot systems research is an area of increasing interest within IEEE
RAS and has the potential to bring about profound economic and social
benefits. The Summer School aims to promote multi-robot systems research
that will enable the students, academic researchers, and industrial
practitioners to realize its growing need in our society to improve our
quality of life and the exciting possibilities surrounding its use in
real-world application domains, as well as raise their awareness to the
challenges and issues faced by the multi-robot systems community in putting
theory into practice and scaling up single-robot algorithms to that for
multiple robots.


The main technical objective of the School is to cover the motivation
driving research in multi-robot systems, existing projects and results, and
open research problems in key areas of multi-robot systems. Underlying
research topics include (1) sensing/perception and estimation, (2) task
allocation and role assignment, (3) control, (4) planning and decision
making, and (5) real-world applications.

Please check the website for updates on the detailed technical program.


Application details can be found on the MRSSS 2016 website (
http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~lowkh/mrsss.html). Applications will be
processed as received. Spaces are limited so please send your application
as soon as possible. Applications are due by 1 April 2016.
