Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the Workshop on *Multi-robot
Perception-Driven Control and Planning*, which will take place on *Friday
the 2nd of June* in Singapore.

We have a great line of international speakers and poster contributions.
The full program is available here:

Invited speakers:
Andrea Cavallaro, Queen Mary University of London
Gianni di Caro, Carnegie Mellon University
Geoffrey A. Hollinger, Oregon State University
Vijay Kumar, University of Pennsylvania
Gonzalo Lopez-Nicolas, Universidad de Zaragoza
Nathan Michael, Carnegie Mellon University
Anibal Ollero, Universidad de Sevilla
Edwin Olson, University of Michigan
Davide Scaramuzza, University of Zurich

The development of cheap, versatile robots has prompted an intense research
in the past decade in multi-robot systems and their applications. Almost
any robotic task can benefit from the cooperation of several robots,
working together towards a common goal. On the other hand, the coordination
of a team of robots has raised numerous questions and research problems
involving perception, planning and control. One of the main challenges in
these systems is to maintain optimality in the control actions and the
navigation plans for the whole team when each robot only has partial
information due to local sensing and limited communications.

The aim of this workshop is to discuss ideas to overcome these challenges,
analyze the state of the art in perception-based solutions for planning and
control of multi-robot systems and identify the most promising research
directions in the context of cooperative perception and navigation. To
achieve these goals, we will bring together leading researchers from
related areas to discuss the latest theoretical and algorithmic solutions
where the limitations of local perception and bandwidth represent the
centerpiece component of the problem.
