The International Symposium on Multi-Robot and Multi-Agent Systems (MRS)
is a new, single-track conference to be inaugurated at the University of
Southern California, USA on 4-5 December 2017. MRS is an initiative of
the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Multi-Robot Systems
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__multirobotsystems.org_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rStC00sfV_qVWqlcnmGhKrRoTMim5rLso-FTzVW2NfNyo&m=S_DhaytGJRhJPgJL2xN54L9cxiyCbZxlxHO0S6rSdY8&s=tBXTfNbhGqitVi5NnZA6lZGqI6c_XPgjeDy_klfzy0A&e=), and is technically co-sponsored by the
IEEE.

The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers who are in
the field of multi-robot systems both directly and indirectly, to
cross-fertilize ideas. Typically MRS research is spread across large
conferences, and this makes it difficult for MRS researchers to keep up
to date on new findings and meet others in the area. The intent of the
conference is to bring those researchers together with a high-quality
symposium to highlight the best in the field. We would like to see the
top advances in multi-robot and multi-agent research represented at MRS
2017.

The focus of the MRS conference is on all aspects of multi-robot and
multi-agent systems. We envision papers from a broad range of topics in
this area, ranging from design and analysis of algorithms to systems.
All accepted papers will be presented within technical sessions. The
program will also include inspiring keynote talks, tutorials, and a
student poster session, in addition to social events to promote
networking among peers.

We have a very selective and high-quality technical program (acceptance
rate of 24%). Accepted papers can be seen at: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__mrs2017.org_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rStC00sfV_qVWqlcnmGhKrRoTMim5rLso-FTzVW2NfNyo&m=S_DhaytGJRhJPgJL2xN54L9cxiyCbZxlxHO0S6rSdY8&s=H89HSMDolW9ckA5056cLYJdkHqamczFOSU014kkxlcs&e=
