AAMAS 2017 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 leading scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multiagent systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 by merging three highly respected meetings: the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS); the International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL); and the International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AA). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally respected archival forum for scientific research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems.

General Information
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 addition, AAMAS 2017 will include:
• Workshops
• Demonstrations
• 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 relevant pages.
