Robotics, from the point of view of Agents and Artificial Intelligence (AI), has been a very important application field for many years. The dynamic and unforeseen nature of the environment, especially for mobile robots, has fostered research in these aspects for AI researchers. This special session will focus on the contributions of the AI and Agent research community for the field of Intelligent Robotics.
