Dear colleagues,

you are invited to submit a contribution to the Special Issue on 
"Multi-Robot and Multi-Agent Systems" to be published on Autonomous Robots

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__static.springer.com_sgw_documents_1630679_application_pdf_CFP-2BAURO-2BMulti-2DRobot-2Band-2BMulti-2DAgent-2BSystems.pdf&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=_pU_pfkI1hnOE4CP8jJtSdhuvdfCFTOBO4qXIiRM94g&s=njbpHlF2lbeilHMq227K-zMcogY24YsqbKsfF5qG2YI&e=


*SCOPE*

In the same way that computers have revolutionized the way we deal with 
information, robotics will enable a similar revolution in the way we 
operate in the real world. Future robots will form a backbone of 
pervasive, efficient networks of taskable agents; but, crucially, these 
will be systems of communicating, cooperative devices. Already multiple 
robot and multiple agent systems (MRS/MAS) have shown their worth in 
fairly structured and semi-structured domains such as logistics, cargo 
management, and agriculture. And far more is on the immediate horizon: 
vehicular networks for transportation, security and surveillance, food 
supply, environmental monitoring and ecological impact assessment, 
services for manufacturing and assistance in rescue settings.


*TOPICS*

The SI topics include (but are not limited to)

- Physical Interaction in/with MRS/MAS
- Cooperative/Collective Learning in MRS/MAS
- AI of Large Scale Systems
- Applications of MRS
- Technological and Methodological Issues
- MRS for Cooperative Manipulation
- Micro/Nano Scale MRS
- Communication in MRS/MAS
- Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking in MRS/MAS
- Human-robot and Human-agent interaction
- Game theoretic approaches for MAS/MRS
- Teamwork, team formation, teamwork analysis for robots


*INFO*

Extended versions of MRS papers are expected to have substantial new 
material w.r.t. their conference versions.
We expect this to be approximately 30% of the final journal article. 
Possible extensions may include: more detailed description of the 
methods and derivations; more analysis of the existing experiments; 
application of the approach to a new problem or domain; extended 
discussion and future work; and additional experiments or demonstrations 
of the method.


All submitted papers will be reviewed following the standard reviewing 
procedures for the journal.
Please note that only a selection of all accepted papers will be 
included in the special issue. The remaining accepted papers will be 
published as "normal" papers in Autonomous Robots.
