The 2nd International Symposium on Multi-Robot and Multi-Agent Systems (MRS

August 22-23, 2019 - Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, USA


Submission Deadline: March 15, 2019

Acceptance Notification: June 3, 2019



The International Symposium on Multi-Robot and Multi-Agent Systems

(MRS) is a single-track conference to be held at Rutgers University,

New Brunswick, NJ, USA, on 22-23 August, 2019. MRS is an initiative of

the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Multi-Robot Systems, and is

technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society



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 2019.

The focus of the MRS conference is on all aspects of multi-robot and

multi-agent systems. We encourage high-quality papers from a broad

range of topics in this area, ranging from design and analysis of

algorithms to systems. Papers should contribute novel results that

clearly advance the state-of-the-art, and should include analytical

and/or experimental evaluation appropriate to the work. We would like

to see the best of multi-robot and multi-agent research represented at

MRS 2019. The fields of interest include the following general fields,

but are not limited to:

- Modeling and Control of MRS/MAS

- Optimal Control and Optimization Methods for MRS/MAS

- Motion and Path Planning for MRS

- Bio-Inspired MRS and Swarm Intelligence/Robotics

- Distributed Perception and Estimation in MRS/MAS

- Planning and Decision Making for MRS/MAS

- Physical Interaction in/with MRS/MAS

- Cooperative/Collective Learning in MRS/MAS

- AI of Large-Scale Systems

- Applications of MRS/MAS

- Technological and Methodological Issues

- MRS for Cooperative Manipulation

- Micro/Nano Scale MRS

- Operating Systems and Cloud Technology for MRS/MAS

- 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

We invite submission of full papers (6 pages + references) or extended

abstract (2 pages + references).  Details on the submission process

are available on the conference website:


Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings

available on the IEEE Xplore digital library. Top-quality papers will

be invited for submission, in extended form, to a journal special

issue after the conference.
