We would like to invite you to our biennial*Lakeside Labs Research 
Days*, successfully established in 2008, held by Lakeside Labs GmbH and 
the University of Klagenfurt. The Research Days are a three-day 
interdisciplinary workshop dated *09 to 11 July 2019*.

This year, the focus of Research Days is on *Communication in Swarms*. 
Swarms cooperate without any central control and act according to simple 
and local behavior. Only through their interactions, a collective 
behavior can emerge to solve complex tasks. Reliable communication is an 
important requirement for swarms to work effectively. It can either be 
explicit (exchange of messages) or implicit (reaction on stigmergy) and 
may be extended to human-machine interaction.

The event should provide a good opportunity to exchange research ideas, 
to initiate collaborations, and plan joint projects. Notable results 
from previous Research Days have been research collaborations, joint 
papers, conference special sessions, and proposals for European 
Projects. We are looking forward to have you on-board!

Following are the notable talks.

·*Heiko Hamann, University of Lübeck*

Together Everyone Achieves More! On Swarm Performance and Interference

·*Sofie Pollin, KU Leuven*

Sense and Avoid Technology for enabling Swarms

·*Alcherio Martinoli, EPFL

Communication in Swarms: Forms, Strengths, and Limitations

*John S. Baras, University of Maryland, USA*

Direct and Indirect Communications in Swarms and Their Effects

One of the key-success factors of the Research Days is the intense group
