                        Lisbon, Portugal


Paper Submission: July 10, 2015
Notification: July 31, 2015
Camera Ready: September 15, 2015


This track welcomes contributions dealing with communication
aspects of robotics systems, theoretical studies, algorithm and
protocol design for flexible robotics networks, as well as
mission oriented contributions dealing with requirements,
constraints, safety issues, and regulation. We are particularly
looking for papers reporting on system aspects and experimental
results, summaries of challenges or advancements, measurements,
or innovative applications. The program seeks original work of
potentially interdisciplinary teams to present robotic research or
applications focusing on the communication challenges or
requirements to the audience.

- MAC and routing protocols for robotics teams
- Robotics communication protocol design (requirements and challenges)
- Theoretical analysis and models for robotics networks
- Solutions for sparse and dense fleets of MAVs
- Spectrum and regulatory issues
- Mission and context-aware solutions
- Drone ad-hoc networks
- Micro-flying systems
- Communication for drone coordination
- Mobility-aware and 3D communication
- Delay-tolerant networks and ferrying approaches
- Robot-based sensor networks
- Positioning and localization through radio frequency
- Robots movement, coordination, and behavior
- Emergency applications
- Cooperative surveillance, smart cameras and sensors
- Experimental results of robotics communication testbeds
- Lessons learned on realistic use of networks in robotic applications


Authors are invited to submit their work to this Special Session
following the guidelines of Springer AISC template
up to a maximum of 12 pages through the EasyChair interface

Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for potential
publication in a JCR journal special issue.
