Call for Papers - The First Workshop on Self-organization
in Swarm of Robots: from Molecular Robots to Mobile Agents

To be held in conjunction with the 33rd IEEE Symposium on
Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS 2014), October 6-9, 2014
                                                            Workshop date:
October 6, 2014

The goal of the workshop on Self-organization in Swarm of Robots: from
Molecular Robots to Mobile Agents is to gather researchers and students in
the field of distributed computing, control theory, molecular robotics, and
system biology, and enhance the connection between these fields.

As technologies for electrical, biological, and chemical devices progress,
new notions of computation and computing devices are emerging, for example,
computation by swarms of robots, autonomy in mobile agents, dynamics in
populations, self-assembly like DNA tiling, and chemical reaction circuits.
These fields share the concept of self-organization of swarm of robots in

The workshop aims at sharing new advances and work in progress, and
discussing future directions to foster novel collaborations.

Topics covered by the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Mobile robots/agents
- Population protocols
- Control theory for swarm of robots
- Self-assembling systems
- Chemical reaction systems
- System biology

- Paper submission deadline: July 1, 2014
- Author notification: July 10, 2014
- Camera-ready submission: July 20, 2014
- Conference: October 6, 2014

Submissions must be written in English and must follow the IEEE two-column
format. They must be submitted through EasyChair. Two types of submissions
will be considered: regular and work-in-progress. Regular submissions must
contain original unpublished results, and should not exceed 10 pages. We
also consider original surveys as regular submissions. Work-in-progress
papers and position papers should be no longer than 4 pages.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the PC members, and accepted
papers will appear in the symposium proceedings, which will be published by
the IEEE Computer Society.
