AAMAS Special Track on Robotics.

May 4 or 5, 2015, Istanbul, Turkey


AAMAS Website:


** Note fast-track review process for AAMAS short papers, below **

Submission of camera-ready version: March 17, 2015



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 to):

- 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 community.

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.

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

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 "short
papers" (extended abstracts) 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.
