AAMAS 2018 Robotics Track
We invite papers that advance theory and application of single and multiple
robots. Papers on the interaction between robots and agents (broadly
defined) are particularly welcome, but all papers at the intersection of
artificial intelligence and robotics are welcome.
Papers are solicited in all areas, including, but not restricted to:
• Human-robot interaction
• Robot communication and teamwork
• Machine learning for robotics
• Mapping, localization and exploration
• Architectures for teams of robots
• Networked robot/sensor systems, distributed robotics
• Robot planning and plan execution (including action and motion planning)
• Robot teams, multi-robot systems, robot coordination
• Robotic agent languages and middleware for robot systems
• Swarms and collective behavior
• Modular robotics
Information for Authors
Submissions to the Robotics Track will follow AAMAS procedures and will be
rigorously peer reviewed and evaluated on the basis of the overall quality
of their technical contribution, including criteria such as originality,
soundness, relevance, significance, quality of presentation, and
understanding of the state of the art.
Submissions are limited to 8 pages in length, with any additional pages
containing only bibliographic references. Reviews will be double blind;
authors must avoid including anything that can be used to identify them.
Please note that submitting an abstract is required to submit a full paper.
However, the abstracts will not be reviewed and full papers must be
submitted for the review process to begin. All work must be original
(i.e., it must not have appeared in a conference proceedings, book, or
journal and may not be under review for another archival conference).
The review process for the special tracks will be the same as for the main
track, but with program committee members specially selected for each track
(i.e., they will be selected from the robotics community). All accepted
papers for the special tracks will be included in the proceedings.

AAMAS is the largest and most influential conference in the area of agents
and multiagent systems. The aim of the conference is to bring together
researchers and practitioners in all areas of agent technology and to
provide a single, high-profile, internationally renowned forum for research
in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems.
All full papers accepted to the main track and the special tracks will be
presented in parallel technical sessions. All the papers will be published
in the conference proceedings and will be permanently available after the
conference at www.ifaamas.org/proceedings.html. In addition, AAMAS 2018
• Poster presentations for full papers and extended abstracts
• Invited talks and panel discussions
The submission processes for the workshops and demonstrations are separate
from the main paper submission process. Information will be posted on the
