First a short reminder: the deadline for submission at the International Workshop on Cloud Native Applications Design and ExperienceCNAX 2016 is approaching quickly: submission deadline is on Dec. 21st!

With that out of the way, we’re delighted to announce that ICCLab and SPLab are organizing the first International Workshop on Cloud Robotics (IWCR 2016) together with our friends over at Rapyuta Robotics.

The workshop will be held In conjunction with the 6th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science – CLOSER 2016 which is set to take place in Rome between the 23rd and 25th of April 2016.

Cloud robotics is a very exciting topic bridging the physical and virtual world. It allows on the one hand to extend the limited processing capabilities of robots by leveraging cloud computing, and on the other it means that robots will be able to access web services providing them with unique advanced capabilities (e.g., speech recognition, Google goggles, knowledge sharing…). But yeah, what we’re all excited about is that we get to play with robots!

For more information on the workshop and the call for papers have a look at the workshop official page:

We’re looking forward to a great workshop on this hot topic, so please consider participating, sending a paper, and help us spread the word!

The submission deadline is January 22, 2016
