We warmly invite you to participate in DARS 2016. Now in its 13th edition, DARS provides a forum for scientific advances in the theory and practice of distributed autonomous robotic systems.
Distributed robotics is an interdisciplinary and rapidly growing area, combining research in computer science, communication and control systems, and electrical and mechanical engineering. Distributed robotic systems can autonomously solve complex problems while operating in highly unstructured real-world environments. They are expected to play a major role in addressing future societal needs, for example, by improving environmental impact assessment, food supply, transportation, manufacturing, security, and emergency and rescue services.
DARS 2016 will build upon past successes and provide an exciting environment to present and discuss the latest technologies, algorithms, system architectures, and applications. The single-track symposium features a strong technical program, international keynote speakers, a welcome reception in a beautiful Victorian townhouse, a banquet offering finest Polish cuisine, and ample opportunity to network.
Fittingly, DARS 2016 will be located in the famed Natural History Museum in London, a powerhouse of scientific enquiry and a voice of authority on the natural world. Its central location in London will give you the opportunity to explore the fabulous Kensington neighborhood, and provide easy access to the wider London area.
The full technical program can be found here:
- Vijay Kumar (University of Pennsylvania): Coordination, cooperation, and collaboration in multi-robot systems
- James AR Marshall (University of Sheffield): Go to the bee and be wise: Swarm engineering inspired by house-hunting honeybees
- Nikolaus Correll (University of Colorado Boulder): Material-integrated intelligence for robot autonomy
- Katia Sycara (Carnegie Mellon University): Robust human control of multi-robot swarms
SPONSORS & EXHIBITORS
Sponsors include Vicon Motion Systems, RS, amazon robotics, Elsevier, Frontiers Media, K-Team, Rahal Tec, IET, and Springer. DARS is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and supported by the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Multi-Robot Systems.
