IEEE International Symposium on Multi-Robot & Multi-Agent Systems

IEEE MRS 2023 will be held on December 4 -5, 2023, in-person at Boston University in Boston, MA.

The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers who are in the field of multi-robot systems (MRS) and multi-agent systems (MAS). Typically, MRS/MAS research is spread across large conferences, and this makes it difficult for us to keep up to date on new findings and meet others in the area. The intent of this conferences is to bring those researchers together with a high-quality symposium to highlight the very best in the field. MRS is an initiative of the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Multi-Robot Systems. Previous iterations include MRS 2017, MRS 2019, and MRS 2021.


The conference scope will include any research related to multi-robot and multi-agent systems, an inherently diverse community. Several competences are needed in this field, ranging from control systems to mechanical design, coordination, cooperation, estimation, perception, and interaction.
