A full paper will be included in the symposium proceedings of AROB/ISBC/SWARM2023.

The accepted papers will be published in AROB Journal vol. 28, no.1, 2023.
If the final document of the accepted paper is not sent to Springer by 23 December 2022, it will not be included in AROB Journal vol. 28, no.1, 2023 but be published in another number.
