The International Symposia on Autonomous Minirobots for Research and Edutainment (AMiRE) provide a forum for autonomous robotics research and for development focused on applying leading edge technology to small sophisticated robots and even low cost robots in research, education and entertainment. Reminiscent of how desktop computers, and now gaming computers, replaced the big mainframe computers as the drivers for the advancement of computer technology small autonomous robots will make robotic research and development much more widely accessible. Primary and secondary school students are participating in robot competitions in increasing numbers, indicating the high educational and entertainment value of low cost autonomous mobile robots. Small robots are also becoming increasingly useful as a test bed for animal behavioural cognitive research and for small scale prototyping of larger systems.

The Sixth AMiRE Symposium will be held from 23 to 25 May 2011 in Bielefeld, Germany
