ICCR 2017: International Conference on Cloud and Robotics.

Submitted to arXiv

Preface

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.

Published Papers

Six papers were accepted at the conference. All submitted regular papers were reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The conference was attended by the researchers/practitioners from various domains in robotics, Cloud computing, software engineering and IoT. The conference faciliated the discussion and exchange between robotics and Cloud computing, and furthermore builded a base for future collaboration.
