RSC 2015: The Second International Workshop on Robots and Sensor Clouds

August 17-20, 2015, Belfort, France.

Overview

In the evolving world of wireless technology and computing, there are many levels of technologies being introduced to the web. With the recent development and progress of cloud computing field, it is possible for users and machines to utilize and to share several services. The current power of robots, communication, storage, fast progress of wireless techniques, enhanced and different types of sensors, robots and sensor networks are able to take advantage of these services and provide influential solutions.

In the age of cloud computing, cloud robotics and sensor clouds are two promising paradigms. Recently, they are increasingly evolving and are likely to be the most effective way to create and monitor robotic and sensor networks applications, in particular for service robots and monitoring applications. Indeed, on the one hand, cloud robotics allow the robots to go beyond their limited processing capabilities and benefit from Internet computing resources. On the other hand, robots can be accessed from anywhere and at anytime through Web interfaces. In the same way, sensor clouds allow to access, use, monitor and interact with sensor nodes seamlessly through the Internet. Although there are several solutions already in place, many challenges remain to be investigated and tackled. RSC 2015 will be held in conjunction with the Mobile Systems and Pervasive Computing (MobiSPC) Concference (MOBISPC-2015) in Belfort, France, August 17-20, 2015.

Scope

This workshop is seeking original research and position papers dealing with different aspects and issues with robots and sensor networks in cloud computing. Also, in an effort to highlight the state-of-the-art and discuss the challenges and opportunities to explore new research directions.

We strongly welcome submissions that include results, which advance the state-of-the-art relating to the themes of the workshop. We consider two main tracks in this workshop: Cloud Robotics and Sensor Clouds. Papers dealing with both robots and sensor networks clouds are also sought.
