***** PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: May 18, 2018 *****
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wireless Sensors and Actuators Networks constitute one of the staples of Railroad’s Infrastructure and Rolling Stock management. With the distances, environments and costs involved in the domain, a remote and reliable surveying is the ever-present objective of all the actors in the industry. The autonomous cooperative systems, made of highly mobile self-organizing robots, may survey tracks and stations, increase operators’ security in maintenance interventions and scout for sudden obstacles in long and isolated tracks. Such applications foresee technological advancements that consider the fields of both Ad-Hoc Networks and Wireless Sensors and Actuators Networks. As the objectives are different from purely civilian or end-user applications, the beneficial possibilities are endless. At the same time, the challenges are as high as the stakes. Whether the innovation comes from 5G COTS or from breakthrough independent solutions, for railway operations, the networking part of the system has to show higher levels of reliability, compared to the end-user domain, as well as increased capabilities.

Railway RoSe aims at bringing together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification and implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for current and future applications of such systems, having special consideration for nature-inspired, machine-learning based techniques and data-driven approaches for network architecture, protocol design and system optimization.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Wireless Sensors and Robots Networks for Railway Systems
- Wireless Autonomous Systems for Rail Networks
- Networked Cyber-physical Systems for Railway Applications
- Innovative Sensor-Network applications for Railway Industry
- Nature-inspired protocol design for WSRN in Railways
- Sensor and Robot Networks for Train Safety and Security
- Sensor-network-based Train Health Monitoring Systems (HMS)
- Unmanned Aerial/Ground Vehicles networks for Railway Systems
- Railway Infrastructure Monitoring using Wireless Sensor and Robot Networks
- Railway Networks Mapping using Multi-sensor fusion
- Machine-learning Railway Applications for Network Control and Management
- The Internet of Things (IoT) for Railway Systems.
- Train-to-Infrastructure and Train-to-Train Wireless Communications
- Robust Localization using Wireless Sensors for Railway Systems
- Energy-Efficient Wireless Protocols for Railway Monitoring Applications
- Innovative analysis of sensor data for Railway Systems
- 5G and beyond-5G Networks for Railways
