MRS 2023 Overview

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

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 a large conference, 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 conference is to bring those researchers together with a high-quality symposium to highlight the very best in the field. Previous iterations include MRS 2017 (Los Angeles, CA, USA), MRS 2019 (New Brunswick, NJ, USA), and MRS 2021 (Cambridge, UK).

The conference scope will include any research related to multi-robot and multi-agent systems, an inherently diverse community. Several competencies are needed in this field, ranging from control systems to mechanical design, coordination, cooperation, estimation, perception, and interaction. The fields of interest include the following general fields, but are not limited to:

  • Modeling and Control
  • Discrete Planning, Routing, Multi-Robot Path Finding, Task Assignment
  • Distributed Optimization and Distributed Algorithms
  • Nonlinear Control, Lyapunov Methods, Optimal Control
  • Continuous Planning, Trajectory Optimization, Informative Planning
  • Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, General Learning, General AI
  • Distributed Perception, Vision, Mapping, SLAM
  • Estimation, Filtering, Bayesian Methods, Target Tracking
  • Robustness, Formal Methods, Network Resilience
  • Human Multi-Robot Interaction
  • Micro/Nano Scale Systems
  • Bio-Inspired Systems and Swarm Intelligence

The conference proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore® digital library (see the proceedings of the previous MRS 2021 here).
