15-16 Nov 2017 Villeurbanne (France)


Swarms  of  autonomous  robots  have been  recently  thrust  into  the limelight. The deployment of networked mobile sensors that are able to execute  collectively various  complex tasks  offers very  interesting perspectives such as coverage of interest zones under natural or human disaster,  search and  rescue tasks,  setting up  of ad-hoc  networks, without  putting   human  lives  at  risk   or  endangering  expensive specialised entities.

  In a general context  of  distributed  systems, obtaining  certified guarantees  is a  crucial  issue;  this area  of  computer science  is well-known  for being  remarkably harsh  on informal  reasoning, which potentially leads to disastrous errors.

  MoRoVer focuses on  developing and applying formal  methods to study and verify  swarms of mobile  robots.  It brings  together researchers from academia  and industry,  specialists of distributed  computing or formal  methods,  as  well  as students,  for  scientific  talks,  and tutorials.
