15 April 2017: Early registration rates expire
9 July 2017: Workshop (full-day)

============================================================
Overview & Topics

This workshop aims to explore connections and encourage discussion
between two historically distinct communities: the parallel robotics
community and the multi-robot community. Although these two areas may
appear as quite distant, they share a strong common underline theme:
understanding how pairwise geometrical constraints (e.g., relative
distances or angles) can affect the mobility or state (pose) estimation
for robotic systems. Moreover, there is a strong analogy between
multi-agent systems and parallel robots: each robot of the system can be
seen as a passive joint of a virtual mechanical (parallel) architecture
and each measurement between two robots as a rigid connection between
them, rigid connection whose dimension can vary thanks to a virtual
actuator. So it is possible to find virtual parallel robot architectures
associated with multi-agent systems.

Three types of sessions will be organized in order to promote
interactivity / exchanges in the audience
- keynote sessions (6 invited speakers for a 35 minutes talk for each of
them)
- interactive session
- panel discussion

*We invite students and researchers to submit 1-page abstracts to be
presented at an interactive session during the workshop. We encourage
submissions related to the fields of multi-robot formation control and
parallel robotics. Information can be found at the workshop website.*
