Background and Scope
Control of mobile robots or other entities, including multi-agent 
systems, via communication networks (wired or wireless, Internet or LAN) 
offers challenging research questions. Combinations of tele-operation 
and tele-presence methods with autonomous decision-making and control 
actions are needed in order to establish robust solutions in networked 
robotics applications, including such arenas as sensor networks with 
mobile components, search and rescue robots for emergency response, 
planetary exploration, and many others. NetRob2009 presents a three-day, 
single-trackworkshop aimed at promoting development of a theoretical 
basis for combining control and telecommunication techniques, as well as 
demonstrating the current state-of-the-art in applications. Workshop 
areas of focus include, but are not limited to:
Networked robots                   Networked UAVs
Control through networks           Control of networks
Mobile sensor-actuator networks    Mobile sensor networks 
Tele-robotics, tele-presence       Telematics methods
Tele-operations, tele-maintenance  Remote control
Remote sensor data acquisition     Robot path planning
Autonomous control                 Robotics
Mobile ad hoc networks             Communication algorithms
Applications of telematics

The Program and Organizing Committees are pleased to invite you to 
participate in the 2009 IFAC Workshop on Networked Robotics. NetRob2009 
will be held Tuesday-Thursday, October 6-8, 2009 at the Colorado School 
of Mines in Golden, Colorado, USA.
