March 25 & 26, 2020
CRUSER invites you to participate in the first annual xSwarm Workshop on March 25 & 26th 2020, in Monterey, California.
xSwarm 2020 is an exploratory workshop for discussing the challenges of "black box" swarms or—xSwarms—large groups of agents for which there is a lack of a priori information about the internal control and decision-making mechanisms and only partial information about the system's perceptual and communication capabilities. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers across diverse fields to provoke sharing of research, discussion, and brainstorming for the development of new tools for understanding xSwarms.
Attendees will have the opportunity to present relevant research, suggest areas of inquiry to the community, and lead or participate in panel discussions.
For more details and contact info, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next WIC Workshop will be held at the NPS campus in Monterey 21-24 September 2020. Topic TBD, to be set in June 2020.
See the RoboDojo schedule of events.
See the JIFX schedule of events.
CRUSER activities are driven by the demand signal of our Community of Interest, and to be most responsive to this dynamic environment we often hold seminars and moderate panel discussions on current topics of interest, and showcase our campus research for special interest groups visiting Monterey.
An opportunity for NPS faculty, students, private companies, and academia to demonstrate and evaluate new technologies related to the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense research in an operational field environment, and to better understand the capabilities that they may represent.
