Javier Alonso-Mora and Ming Cao have the pleasure to invite you to
participate in the DISC Summer School "Planning, Learning and Control for
Multi-Robot and Multi-Agent Systems”, which will take place from June
30-July 3, 2020, at Centerparcs Zandvoort, Zandvoort, The Netherlands.

The invitation is aimed at PhD and research students, staff members,
researchers and engineers engaged in the systems and control area.
Distinguished speakers will present a series of tutorial lectures.

*Multi-robot and Multi-agent Systems*

In the (near) future fleets of autonomous cars will coordinate to provide
on-demand transportation while making our roads safer; mobile robots will
coordinate in manufacturing and logistic processes; and teams of aerial
robots will provide automated inspection and surveillance. These
applications require novel methods and theoretical developments in the
systems and control field that account for the interaction and coordination
with other agents in complex environments.

In this summer school, we will present recent developments towards the
endeavour of pervasive multi-robot and multi-agent systems. The lectures
and tutorials will cover the concepts of communication-based coordination
(consensus, distributed optimization and formation control), interaction
(decision-making in multi-agent systems), motion planning and learning. The
lectures contain both recent control theoretical development, as well as,
application within the robotics field. Additional, we are hoping that this
summer school will serve to partially bridge the gap between controls and
AI research for multi-robot and multi-agent systems

The main program will consist of a number of international and national
speakers. Keynote lectures will be given by:

· *Dimos Dimarogonas, *KTH, Sweden

· *Jenjen Chung, *ETH Zurich, CH

· *Dan Halperin, *Tel Aviv University, IL

· *Lorenzo Sabattini, *University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, IT

· *Frans Oliehoek, *TU Delft, NL

Complemented by talks given by DISC lecturers:

· *Javier Alonso-Mora, *TU Delft, NL

· *Bart Besselink*, University of Groningen, NL

· *Antonio Franchi*, University of Twente, NL

· *Sergio Grammatico*, TU Delft, NL

· *Nathan van de Wouw*, TU Eindhoven, NL

The registration fee, which includes full board and lodging, is

·         825,- Euro for DISC students/members (until May 10, 2020-early
bird) and 975,- Euro (after May 10, 2020)

·         1025,- Euro for non-DISC members (until May 10, 2020-early bird)
