The IEEE Transactions on Robotics invites submissions to a Special Issue on
Resilience in Networked Robotic Systems.

Submission deadline:  April 1, 2020

Guest Editors:

* Amanda Prorok, University of Cambridge (asp45 at cam.ac.uk)
* Vijay Kumar, University of Pennsylvania (kumar at seas.upenn.edu)
* Brian M. Sadler, Army Research Laboratory (brian.m.sadler6.civ at mail.mil)
* Gaurav Sukhatme, University of Southern California (gaurav at usc.edu)

There is a substantive body of work on methods providing robustness to
robotic systems, but research on resilience is scattered, and the
distinction between resilience and robustness is still poorly understood.
As a result, this special issue has two main goals:  (1) to provide a
deeper understanding of resilience for networked systems and (2) to
assemble works that demonstrate the importance of resilient methods.  In an
effort to disseminate the current advances in designing and operating
resilient robotic networks, and to stimulate a discussion on the future
research directions in this field, the IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO)
invites papers for a Special Issue in this area. Researchers are invited to
submit papers on the foundational, algorithmic, and experimental aspects of
design, modeling, control and validation of resilience in robotic networks.

Topics include networked robotic systems, multi-robot systems, and
collaborative human-robot teams. Topics of particular interest include, but
are not restricted to:

* Coordination for resilience
* Perception-action-communication loops for resilience
* Networking and topology control for resilience
* Resilience against adversarial robots
* Abstraction, synthesis, and validation of resilient behaviors
* Formalization of redundancy and heterogeneity
* Machine learning in networked teams
* Game theory in networked teams
