ICCR 2018: International Conference on Cloud and Robotics.
Submitted to arXiv
The 5th edition of the International Conference on Cloud and Robotics (ICCR 2018 - this http URL) will be held on November 12-14 2018 in Paris and Saint-Quentin, France. The conference is a co-event with GDR ALROB and the industry exposition Robonumerique (https://www.robomeetings.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. Today, the paradigms of cloud/fog/edge computing propose software architecture solutions for robots to share computations or offload them to ambiant and networked resources. Yet, combining distant computations with the real time constraints of robotics is very challenging. As the challenges in this domain are multi-disciplinary and similar in other research areas, Cloud Robotics aims at building bridges among experts from academia and industry working in different fields, such as robotics, cyber-physical systems, automotive, aerospace, machine learning, artificial intelligence, software architecture, big data analytics, Internet-of-Things, networked control and distributed cloud systems.
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.
