  Date: June 1-4, 2021
  Location: Clock Tower Centennial Hall, Kyoto University, Kyoto Japan

Important Dates
 November 1, 2020 Submission of Full/Short papers
 February 1, 2021 Notification of acceptance
 March 15, 2021 Camera-ready submission and Fee payment deadline
 March 15, 2021 Submission of Abstract             

Living things achieved perfection through natural selection.
A swarm could do many things, which its individuals could not.
Swarms do not just adapt to their environment but can construct suitable habitats for their own advantages.
A constructive understanding of the intelligence of living things is  a productive in biology and engineering.
The aim of this joint symposium DARS/SWARM2021 is the construction of a bridge between biologists and engineers who are interested in the intelligence of living things and the creation of a new academic field by integrating biology and engineering.
This joint symposium will focus on the biological and engineering approaches for understanding swarm behavior, biologically-inspired robotics and distributed autonomous robotic systems.
All aspects of swarm behavior and bio-inspired robotics are welcome, including - but not limited to - the following topics:

 Social insect, Evolution Cooperation,
 Ethology, Social physiology, 
 Adaptation, Self-organization, 
 Sociometry, Phase polyphenism, 
 Quorum sensing, Phase Polyphenism

 Swarm Intelligence, Swarm Robotics
 Biomimetics, Bio-inspired Robotics,
 Multi-agent System, Walking robots,
 Modular robotics, Decentralized control,
 Distributed system
