Appels à soumission pour le numéro spécial « Software Engineering for Cloud Robotics » de la revue « Journal on Software Engineering for Robotics »

Call for papers: Special Issue of the Journal on Software Engineering for Robotics (JOSER)

on the theme Software Engineering for Cloud Robotics

Open call for papers following the
International Conference on Cloud and Robotics (ICCR 2017)
November 22-23, 2017, Saint Quentin, France

Submission deadline: March 30, 2018.

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,
it requires to build bridges between experts working in different
fields, such as robotics, cloud computing, software engineering,
software architecture, computationally intensive robotic functions
(machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data analytics,
etc.), networks and distributed systems.

This call for papers welcomes extended versions of papers presented at
ICCR 2017 and previous instances of the conference, but also any
other submission respecting the theme and the editorial policies of


- Software engineering issues, concepts, tools and practices for
  cloud robotics and networked robots.
- Architectures and middleware solutions specific to the
  integration cloud/edge/fog computing with robots.
- Domain Specific Languages for cloud robotics.
- Computational offloading and load balancing in robotics.
- Software engineering issues for developing self-adaptive cloud
  robotic systems.
- Hands-on experiences and use cases in applying software
  engineering approaches specific to cloud robotics in all domains:
  manufacturing, Industry 4.0, healthcare, active assisted living,
  logistics and transportation, security and surveillance, precision
  agriculture, etc.

Formatting and Submission Instructions

All manuscripts should be prepared according to the JOSER editorial
policies and author guidelines available at:
According to the the JOSER policies, submissions made after
publication at ICCR 2017 or any other conferences must be expanded by
at least 30% of new scientific and technical material (hence excluding
the introduction, the related works and the references per se).

Please notify the guest editors (see below) by email before submitting
a manuscript.
