 Important Dates
  Paper submission deadline: February 25, 2019 (it was February 12, 2019)
  Notification of acceptance: March 20, 2019
  Submission of camera-ready version: April 1, 2019

Robots are agents, too. Indeed, AAMAS researchers are sometimes inspired by robots, sometimes use robots in motivating examples, and sometimes make contributions to robotics. Both practical and analytical techniques in AAMAS influence, and are being influenced by, research into autonomous robots and multi-robot systems. Areas of particular recent cross-fertilization include (but are not limited to): 
- motion planning and path planning for single and multiple mobile robots
- market-based coalition formation and task allocation
- machine learning in single- and multi-robot (agent) settings
- multi-robot teams and swarms
- human-robot interaction 
- human-robot (agent) teamwork
- analysis of large-scale multi-robot systems and swarms
- decision-theoretic single- and multi-robot planning
- imitation and learning by demonstration/example
- formal methods and control architectures
- game-theoretic coordination
- canonical robotics problems and benchmarks, such as robotic soccer, coverage, foraging, or patrolling
Despite the rich cross-fertilization between AAMAS and robotics research areas, roboticists and agents researchers have only a few opportunities to meet and interact. The Robotics Track at AAMAS is one such opportunity. The goal of the workshop is to extend and widen this opportunity, by offering a forum where researchers in this area can interact and present promising innovative research directions, and new results. 
The workshop is coordinated and associated with the AAMAS Robotics Track to fast-track all papers accepted as extended abstracts at the main conference into the ARMS workshop.

Submissions and Publication
The submission website is

Contributions are sought in all areas of robotics, in particular as related to autonomous agents research, but not necessarily so.
Theoretical papers are welcome, as long as they clearly address challenges in robotics. Empirical studies should ideally present experiments with real robots, though physical simulation studies are also acceptable. Papers that focus on mechanical aspects and low-level control should make an effort to relate to the agents community.

Submissions should follow Springer's LNCS format (see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.springer.de_comp_lncs_authors.html&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=LO_aninoHJpaqsAqbJUgbcwskl0f-FKm8YeCuiC99pU&s=Pxae49LNiG6CN5Kizzg3MwQMOK7Co9e4Ijqh5UOelEY&e= for instructions, or directly download the LaTeX style file: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=ftp-3A__ftp.springer.de_pub_tex_latex_llncs_latex2e_llncs2e.zip&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=LO_aninoHJpaqsAqbJUgbcwskl0f-FKm8YeCuiC99pU&s=pkb_7yV9eJpzFvhsR59fUwNRZm1wNALfpINXeLdKQPs&e=).

Papers should not exceed 20 pages in length.

Papers will be reviewed by at least 2 reviewers. Criteria for selection of papers will include: originality, readability, relevance to themes, soundness, and overall quality.

Papers do not have to be anonymized: We do not follow a double-blind review process.

Also this year, there will not be archival proceedings, but Springer will publish a best-paper volume from all AAMAS workshops, to be published in June or July 2019. Authors of the selected best papers will be required to revise their submitted papers after the workshops.

Fast-Track Review Process
As part of our close coordination with the AAMAS Robotics Track, we offer a fast-track review process to papers that have been accepted as extended abstracts ("short papers”) to the AAMAS conference, in the Robotics Track or with a robotics keyword. For such papers, please include the original AAMAS paper number with the submission.
