Due to multiple requests, we have extended the RSN2015 workshop deadline to Feb/2/2015.
Please see bellow for the updated call.
Call for Papers: The 2nd Int. Workshop on
Robotic Sensor Networks
part of CPSWEEK –
Recent developments in sensing and actuation
technology, along with the miniaturization of computing and communication, have
led to the development of commodity robot technology such as hobby drones and
robot toolkits. These platforms are bringing sensing and actuation at places
where traditional technology does not reach; for example, for aerial pollution
monitoring or for disaster management in remote areas.
This novel class of cyber-physical systems
(CPS) take many of the design, implementation, and validation issues of
traditional CPSs to an extreme. Control, sensing, estimation, and algorithms
for localization, mapping, navigation, and exploration of individual robots are
needed to govern their movements. The timing aspects of vehicle operation are
key to provide run-time guarantees about performance. The software design and
implementation must lead to provably correct execution. Noisy or inaccurate
information sensed by the robots must be properly handled to ensure an accurate
understanding of the environment.
Research efforts to address the issues above,
while related, have previously progressed independently with little
cross-fertilization across diverse disciplines such as robotics, real-time
systems, signal processing, and software development. The goal of this workshop
is to create a platform where researchers from different communities can get
together to better understand the latest developments in these related fields
as well as to establish connections for future interdisciplinary work. The
workshop intends to provide a platform to enable such cross-fertilization, to
ultimately speed up the development of the field and to foster rich
interdisciplinary work in the future. Particularly, co-location with the
Cyber-Physical Systems week will be an asset in this regard. CPSWEEK is the
premiere CPS event that brings together five top conferences from complementary
areas such as Embedded Systems, Real-time Systems, Sensor Networks, Hybrid
Systems, and Networked Systems.
This will be the second edition of this
workshop. The proceedings of the first edition are available at (http://www.cse.buffalo.edu/faculty/kdantu/rsn14/index.html).
To build the needed interdisciplinary work
ultimately necessary to the development of the field, the workshop seeks
technical contributions describing original, previously unpublished results in
all topics related to the design of robotic sensor networks, including works across
two or more of the following topic areas:
• Programming of robot swarms
• Low-power communication in robot networks
• Sensing coverage using robotic swarms
• Task allocation
• Distributed sensing
• Distributed control
• Coordination in robotic swarms
• Verification and validation
• Distributed planning and navigation
• Novel applications
• Experience reports
Extended Submission deadline: Feb 2, 2015.
Notifications : Feb 9, 2015.
Camera ready : Feb 16, 2015.
Workshop : Apr 13, 2015.
We invite to submit papers in PDF format, of at
most 6 pages in length including figures, tables, and references, in two-column
format, and using a minimum of 10-pt font. Please refer to the webpage for more
details. Accepted submissions will be distributed along with the other
workshops' proceedings via a USB key to the attendees. The papers will also be
digitally archived via the ACM Digital Library.
