*This CFP targets both research articles and industry presentations.*

The 4th edition of the International Conference on Cloud and Robotics 
(ICCR 2017 - https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__cloudrobotics.info&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=MgMiXd8Fz6bM7tH2ub4K9KK4-FwWgSvyKfOAT6QFwYY&s=oi5ihw6ikS8Bj8AQRplZ_6LjtJ_YtBHm7QSxBhNUTrA&e=) will be held on November 22-23 
2017 in Saint-Quentin, France. The conference is co-located with the 
industry exposition Robonumerique (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.robonumerique.fr&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=MgMiXd8Fz6bM7tH2ub4K9KK4-FwWgSvyKfOAT6QFwYY&s=8y1f1a9_VAKWXpoeTC-ZII4M3e73Wdhe3q3NBwJE-1s&e=).

The domain of cloud robotics aims to converge robots with computation, 
storage and communication resources provided by the cloud. The cloud may 
complement robotic resources in several ways, including crowd-sourcing 
knowledge databases, context information, computational offloading or 
data-intensive information processing for artificial intelligence. As 
the challenges in this domain are multi-disciplinary, the session aims 
at building a bridge between experts from academia and industry working 
in different fields, such as robotics, machine learning, artificial 
intelligence, software architecture, big data analytics, 
Internet-of-Things and distributed cloud systems.

The conference is organizing two special sessions: one on the 
integration of Internet-of-Things with robots (leading to the so-called 
Internet of Robotic Things), as well as one industry session.

------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  * Architectures and middleware solutions for cyber-physical systems,
    integrating the IoT, the cloud/edge with robots and other actuators
  * Distributed sensing, planning and actuation
  * Cloud-based control systems, possibly using deterministic wireless
    or wired networking
  * Domain Specific Languages for cloud robotics and cyber-physical systems
  * Software engineering practices for networked robots
  * Tele-robotic systems
  * Computational offloading and load balancing in robotics
  * Multi-robot coordination and orchestration
  * Self-adaptive cyber-physical and robotic systems
  * Cloud-supported collective knowledge and parameter sharing between
    actuation systems
  * Sensor fusion for improved control policies
  * Transfer learning between tasks or across robotic systems
  * Hands-on experiences and use cases in the fields of manufacturing,
    Industry 4.0, healthcare, active assisted living, logistics and
    transportation, security and surveillance, precision agriculture and
    others.

------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Submission

Three categories of submissions are sollicited:

  * full papers, presenting research results, limited to 6 pages in
    2-column conference paper format
  * application papers (short papers 2-4 pages), presenting lessons
    learnt during practical field trials and/or with commercial
    applications in the domain of cloud robotics and cyber-physical systems
  * presentations, expressing industry viewpoints and requirements that
    may help in shaping future research agenda. Prospective presenters
    should submit a short abstract describing the content of their
    presentation
