Call for papers
Wireless sensor and robot networks (WSRNs) are the confluence point
where the traditional fields of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), robot
networks and control theory meet. In WSRN, nodes collaborate to
accomplish distributed sensing and actuation tasks. Leveraged by the
control and mobility of actors, the networking process and
applications embrace a whole new set of possibilities. Actors may
deploy, repair and relocate sensors to improve coverage, build routes
and fix network partition to ensure data communication, change network
topology to shape routing patterns and balance energy consumption, and
respond to reported events in a timely and effective manner. The
benefits are limited only by imagination. As an emerging field, WSRNs
are in need of new networking techniques, by which they can fully
exploit their particularities and potentials.WiSARN aims to bring
together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification
and implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for
current and future applications of WSRN.

• WSRN architectural and operational models
• Optimal control of networked robots
• Robot advanced motion control by WSRN
• Modeling and control of flying robots
• Autonomic and self-organizing coordination and communication
• Sensor-robot and robot-robot coordination
• Energy-efficient and real-time communication protocols
• Bandwidth-efficient and delay-tolerant communication
• Distributed control and management in WSRN
• Neighborhood discovery and mobility management
• Communication protocols for swarms of mobile robots
• Map exploration and pattern formation of mobile robots
• Robot task assignment
• Biologically inspired communication
• Ecological systems
• Architectures and topology control
• Localization in WSRN
• Probabilistic integration in WSRN
• Quality of service, security and robustness issues
• Applications and prototypes
• Hybrid networks and wireless Internet
• M2M and D2D communications
• Data management, gathering, aggregation and query processing

Submission Instructions
It is required that the manuscript follows the standard IEEE
camera-ready format (double column, 10-pt font) as well as the
requirement set by EDAS paper submission system. The maximum length of
ICNC paper without over-length charge is FIVE (5) page. The authors
