Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce the Call for Papers for the 17th International Workshop on Networked Robotics and Communication Systems (NetRobiCS 2024), formerly known as WiSARN, scheduled to be held in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2024 on 20 May 2024.

NetRobiCS 2024 focuses on the pivotal role of communication and networking in the evolving field of robotic networks, which are revolutionizing industries, enhancing daily life, and exploring new frontiers on Earth and beyond. The workshop aims to foster the exchange of ideas and the latest research in wireless ground, marine, and aerial robotic networks.

We invite original, unpublished contributions in areas including, but not limited to:

Network protocols and communication technologies for robotic systems

5G, 6G, and satellite-enabled robotic systems

Communications and networking for swarm robotics

Infrastructure-to-robot and robot-to-robot communication

Robotic motion control and swarm modeling and management

Data management and processing in robotic systems

Embedded AI and federated learning solutions in robotic systems

AI-driven communication and computing in robotic systems

Path planning, localization, and navigation in robotic networks

Cloud/fog/edge computing platforms for robotic systems

Energy efficiency and endurance management in robotic networks

Quality of service, security, and robustness issues in robotic networks

Blockchain-enabled robotic systems

Energy-efficient & real-time communication protocols in robotic networks

Distributed control and management for robotic networks

Autonomic & self-organizing coordination and communication in robotic networks

Map exploration and pattern formation of mobile robots

Novel applications of robotic networks

Workshop Features:

Best Paper Award, with a prize sponsored by the TII

Submission Guidelines:

Papers must be formatted in the standard IEEE two-column format that is used by the INFOCOM 2024 main conference and must not exceed SIX pages in length (including references). All submitted papers will go through a peer review process, and all accepted papers that are presented by one of the authors at the workshop will be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2024 proceedings and IEEE Xplore.
