Call For Papers



Autonomous Robots and Multirobot Systems (ARMS) 2013

A full-day workshop to be held as part of AAMAS-2013
and to accompany the AAMAS Special Track on Robotics

May 6 or 7, 2013, Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA


Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: January, 30, 2013
Notification of acceptance: February 27, 2013
Submission of camera-ready version: March 8, 2013

Robots are agents, too. Indeed, agent researchers are sometimes
inspired by robots, sometimes use robots in motivating examples, and
sometimes make contributions to robotics. Both practical and
analytical techniques in agent research influence, and are influenced
by, research into autonomous robots and multi-robot systems. Areas of
particular recent cross-fertilization include (but are not limited

- motion planning and path planning for single and multiple
mobile robots
- market-based for coalition formation and task allocation
- machine learning in robotics
- multi-robot teams and swarms
- human-agent-robot 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
- 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 recently established robotics
track at AAMAS is one such opportunity. The goal of the proposed
workshop is to extend and widen this opportunity, by offering a forum
where researchers in this area of research can interact and present
promising innovative research directions, and new results. The
workshop is coordinated and associated with the AAMAS robotics track.

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

Submissions should follow Springer's LNCS format (see for instructions, or
directly download the latex style file:

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.
