We got a Special Session accepted at the 26th International Sympoisium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication.

The goal of special sessions is to provide a forum for oral presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme, focused on new topics or innovative applications of established approaches. A special session consists of four to six papers, which, for example, address a particular theme or consist of work done in some particular international project.

Please consider a submission for especially the Special Session 5 on:

5. Special Session on “Cloud Technologies: Empowering Robots to Connect Society”
Organizers: George Samaras (cssamara@cs.ucy.ac.cy) University of Cyprus; Andreou Panayiotis (PGAndreou@uclan.ac.uk) UCLan Cyprus; Sten Hanke (Sten.hanke@ait.ac.at) Austrian Institute of Technology; Luís Santos (luis@isr.uc.pt) University of Coimbra.

The main aim of this session is to bring together researchers working on robotics, cloud computing, data analytics, innovative ICT services development, and machine learning and together exploit recent advances in these fields combined. The special session is designed towards discussing innovative, breakthrough research ideas that can potentially create social and economical value to society. In particular, distributed machine learning, robot-cloud architectures, standards and information sharing are promoted as key innovations that should be brought to discussion towards novel application domains. Papers addressing cloud-connected robots in the following areas are particularly welcome:
(1) Big-Data Analytics and Cloud-based Distributed Machine Learning
(2) Distributed service provision using cloud technologies for Active and Healthy Ageing
(3) Adaptable and Connected Social Robotic Systems
(4) Distributed Robot-Cloud Architectures and Services.
