Multiagent/Swarm Fuzzy and Intelligent Systems

Special Session for FUZZ-IEEE2021 on:  

Multiagent/Swarm Fuzzy and Intelligent Systems

AIM: The development of technology in different domains such as computing, sensing, and information processing, together with reliable communication, has made it possible to employ collaborative autonomous systems that allow for greater efficiency, flexibility, reliability, and capacity. It has also become possible to deploy multiple satellites, robots, crewless vehicles, and even many nanoscaled machines for automation, monitoring, healthcare, space research, and even targeted drug delivery and precision medicine.
The above advancements necessitate further research on efficient distributed structures and collaborative control of multiagent or swarm systems. The multiagent systems are associated with significant challenges such as handling uncertainties and complexities of the operating environment, uncertainties of dynamics of possibly heterogeneous agents, and limited interactions between the agents. Swarm systems carry similar challenges to multiagent systems, with the difference being in their design simplicity and limitations on their sensing, cognition, and actuation. Swarm systems make up for these challenges with their sheer numbers and taking inspiration in nature's way of handling complexity and uncertainty. Nevertheless, we face further challenges when the multiagent/swarm systems are also human-centered.
This special session will highlight the latest development in this rapidly growing research area, emphasizing the new trends in fuzzy and intelligent multiagent/distributed/swarm systems. All researchers, academics, and experts are invited to submit their original works to this special session.

  • Multiagent control systems such as formation, flocking, and cooperative control
