The 4th edition of the International Conference on Cloud and Robotics (ICCR 2017 - http://cloudrobotics.info) will be held on November 22-23 2017 in Saint-Quentin, France. The conference is co-located with the industry exposition Robonumerique (http://www.robonumerique.fr).
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. A selected set of papers will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Software Engineering for Robotics (http://www.joser.org).
Topics of interest include, but are not necessarily limited to:
Three categories of submissions are solicited:
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 by choosing academic or student topic.
Full paper submission deadline:
October 23, 2017 October 30, 2017
October 30, 2017 November 7, 2017
November 7, 2017 November 17, 2017
A selection of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version for a Special Issue for the Journal of Software Engineering for Robotics(JOSER).
There are a limited number of hotel grants available for authors of accepted papers at the conference. Applicants should send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
