Call for Papers: 2017 International Conference on Cloud and Robotics


* Conference/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=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=eT3sh5QfqWE-xcMXyoMhiV2zRAbJAEH_UcfAxV-Zw04&s=hsDSYAD5jFl-UkkN7Ujq6Q32A69joodJsoycix8B_Ak&e=) will be held on November 22-23 2017 in
Saint-Quentin, France.

The conference is co-located with the 4th International Robotics Exposition:
Robonumerique (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.robonumerique.fr&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=eT3sh5QfqWE-xcMXyoMhiV2zRAbJAEH_UcfAxV-Zw04&s=nFX0Ge_3gFe3NJ4416UOn8gbCLqV-AJFI3KgP57ewGY&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 roboticists, machine learning, artificial
intelligence, software architecture, big data analytics, Internet-of-Things
and distributed cloud systems.

The conference is welcoming all papers related to Cloud and Robotics, but
will also devote specific attention to the following themes:


   The integration of Internet-of-Things with robots (leading to the
   so-called Internet of Robotic Things)

   Agricultural robotics and automation

   Requirements, use cases and experience from industry

=== CONFERENCE PAPERS ================================================


ICCR 2017 invites contributions of previously published or unpublished
work, describing results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, or
experimental research and industrial practice in Cloud computing, Web
services or Robotics. Solicited topics include, but are not 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.

Three categories of submissions are solicited:

   - Full papers, presenting research results, limited to 6 pages in
   2-column conference paper format
   - Short 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.


All papers must conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Formatting
Guidelines, use the letter page format, and be submitted electronically
through the Easychair Online Submission Site
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_conferences_-3Fconf-3Diccr17&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=eT3sh5QfqWE-xcMXyoMhiV2zRAbJAEH_UcfAxV-Zw04&s=B4C7a4Eponj5M-HgfCrWpey68dGllJ_feT9ZT1NWcNY&e=> by choosing academic or
student topic. All submissions must be in English.

*Special issue*
A selection of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended
version for a Special Issue for the Journal of Software Engineering (JOSER).

   - Architectures and middleware solutions for cyber-physical systems
   - Domain Specific Languages for cloud robotics and cyber-physical systems
