Welcome to the l1th International Conference on Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS-11). Since 1986, the IAS conferences have been meeting places for researchers on Intelligent Systems The goal of the IAS conference is to bring together leading researchers interested in all aspects of autonomy and adaptivity of artificial systems. A current trend which is also reflected in this conference is the interaction with humans of intelligent systems where there is a symbiosis between humans and intelligent systems.
This year, 35 papers have been submitted to IAS-11. All the submissions were rigorously reviewed by the Program Committee. A total of 25 papers were accepted for presentation at the conference. This IAS-11 conference features a single track of technical presentations of papers with high scientific quality. The papers contained in the final program cover a wide spectrum of research in autonomous intelligent systems including interactive systems, learning, perception, localization and mapping, navigation planning and distributed systems.
The proceedings include all accepted papers and reflect a variety of topics concerning intelligent autonomous systems. The organizers would like to express their gratitude to all contributors in the preparation phase as well as during the meeting. We would especially like to thank the program committee members for their valuable support and for the preparation of the reviews, which allowed making a proper selection of high-quality papers.
The staff of the School of Information Technology and Engineering (SITE) of the University of Ottawa and especially Dr. Ana-Maria Cretu took a great part in planning and organizing the conference.
We wish all participants that they enjoy IAS-11 and the beautiful city of Ottawa. We hope that IAS-11 will provide you with new ideas, allow you to exchange knowledge, and be a prosperous event for you.
