Call For Papers

The International Workshop on Cooperative Robots and Sensor Networks (RoboSense 2013)
In conjunction with the 4th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2013) in Nova Scotia, Canada, June 25-28, 2013.

Springer Special Edition

Best selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to the special edition of Springer Book “Cooperative Robots and Sensor Networks” under the book series “Studies in Computational Intelligence”.


Wireless connected robots and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have enabled great potentials and a large space for ubiquitous and pervasive applications. Robotics and WSNs have mostly been considered as separate research fields and little work has investigated the marriage between these two technologies. However, these two technologies share several features, enable common cyber-physical applications and provide complementary support to each other.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia, and industry working in to both robotics and sensor networks areas to present and discuss recent advances and innovative ideas pertaining to these fields. Papers dealing with the coupling between robots and sensor networks are particularly sought. The workshop also looks for contributions about cyber-physical applications based on robotics and sensor networks, such as intelligent transportation systems, healthcare monitoring, industrial automation, etc.

The workshop will provide a relaxed forum to present and discuss new ideas, new research directions and to review current trends in these areas. The workshop will be based on short presentations that should encourage discussions among the attendees. Statements which are innovative, controversial or that present new approaches are specially sought.

Workshop Chairs

Anis Koubaa, Prince Sultan University (Saudi Arabia)/CISTER Research Unit, Portugal.
Abdelmajid Khelil, TU Darmstadt, Germany

Important Dates

Paper Submission: January 28, 2013
Notification of Acceptance: February 28, 2013
