June 1-4, 2021 Symposium
Proceedings of DARS2021 will be published as Distributed Autonomous Robotics Systems in the book series Springer Proceedings in Advanced Robotics.
Selected papers from accepted papers to SWARM2021 will be invited to submit to a special issue on Artificial Life and Robotics (Springer).
Living things achieved perfection through natural selection. A swarm could do many things, which its individuals could not. Swarms do not just adapt to their environment but can construct suitable habitats for their own advantages. A constructive understanding of the intelligence of living things is productive in biology and engineering. The aim of this joint symposium DARS-SWARM2021 is the construction of a bridge between biologists and engineers who are interested in the intelligence of living things and the creation of a new academic field by integrating biology and engineering. This joint symposium will focus on the biological and engineering approaches for understanding swarm behavior, biologically-inspired robotics and distributed autonomous robotic systems. All aspects of swarm behavior and bio-inspired robotics are welcome, including - but not limited to - the following topics:
