International Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems (DARS 2014)
November 2-5, 2014, Daejeon Convention Center, Daejeon, Korea

The goal of the Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems is to exchange and stimulate research ideas to realize advanced distributed robotic systems. Distributed robotics is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary research area lying at the intersection of computer science, communication and control systems, and electrical and mechanical engineering. Technologies, algorithms, system architectures, and applications will be presented and discussed during a single-track, 3-days symposium. DARS 2014 will build upon past successes and provide an exciting environment for researchers to present and discuss their novel theoretical results, implementations, and applications.
