Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.


IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, Special Issue on Cloud Robotics and Automation, Calling for Submissions

October 30th, 2013 / in Uncategorized / by Ann Drobnis

logo-rasThe Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Robotics and Automation Society (IEEE-RAS) will be publishing a special edition of Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE) that is focused on Cloud Robotics and Automation. From the Call for Papers:

This Special Issue addresses the potential of the “Cloud” (Internet) to enhance automation and robotics for manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, logistics, security, agriculture, and many related industries by improving performance in at least five ways: 1) Big Data : indexing a global library of maps and object data; 2) Cloud Computing : parallel grid computing on demand for automation; 3) Open-Source/Open-Access : humans sharing code, data, algorithms and hardware designs; 4) System Learning : machines sharing parameters, control policies and outcomes; and 5) Crowdsourcing/call centers : offline and on-demand human guidance for evaluation, learning and error recovery.

Papers for the Special Issue are due January 31, 2014.  You can view the full Call for Papers here.
