Call for Abstracts

Workshop on Resilient Robot Teams: Composing, Acting, and Learning
at the 2019 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)
May 20-24, Montreal, Canada.

Abstract submission deadline: April 5, 2019


The timeliness of this workshop is granted by our aspirations to solve
increasingly hard problems in complex, contested, and adversarial
environments. We wish to see teams of heterogeneous agents (robots and
humans) operating in such unstructured environments through behaviors that
are not brittle and preprogrammed, but rather adaptive, learned on-line,
and resilient. The aim of this workshop is to discuss three key approaches
to achieving resilient distributed intelligence and resilient behavior, in
robot-robot as well as human-robot teams: composing, acting, and learning.

Abstract submission deadline: April 5, 2019

If you would like to present recent and ongoing work related to the topics
of this workshop, please submit a short abstract (max. 4 pages) over email,
outlining your research. We are planning to have a spotlight session, as
well as a dedicated poster session for all accepted submissions during the
workshop, providing a unique opportunity to discuss your work in this area
with colleagues.


Composition, control and coordination strategies for heterogeneous robot
