The scope of this workshop targets the growing 
overlap between both autonomous systems, and the
future generation of network technologies 
embedded in Internet of things or cloud computing. Indeed,
autonomous applications embedded in complex 
configurations and dynamic environments have
rapidly expanded from classical ones to 
applications where different modular devices, actuators and
sensors interact closely. This has impacted 
considerably the control of a given system in a centralized
manner Current trends are to propose new 
autonomic architecture schemes that manage and control
future networks within the so-called sky of 
clouds and Internet of things. Healthcare and wellness
applications such as helping elderly people, 
assisting dependent persons, habitat monitoring in a
smart environment constitute some of the 
potential scenarios of convergence between robotic
systems and network technologies. These 
applications, which are based on high-level commands and
in order to accomplish some specific tasks, 
reveal new challenges regarding mechanic design,
portability, acceptability, power support, 
control theory, etc. In addition to portability and low-power
systems, which are vital challenges that limit 
substantially any successful robotic application, network
paradigms should also take into account issues 
related to cost, scalability and security. This workshop
will highlight the overlapping of these two 
domains of autonomous systems and network technologies
devoted for different applications. Issues 
related to concepts, new technologies, and protocols will
elicit particular attention.
The workshop solicits papers addressing, but are 
not limited to, the following topics:

- Autonomous manipulation using service robots
- Smart communications for Cloud Computing and Internet of things
- Architecture and protocol for wireless based sensor networks
- Virtual networks and distributed Agent Platform
- Pervasive communication in autonomous application fields
- Rehabilitation robotics, exoskeletons, smart 
textile clothes and wearable robots applications
- Context-awareness and ubiquitous robotics
- Secure, scalable and low cost network paradigms applications
- Techniques of sensing, actuation and recognition
- Applications of Autonomous Behavior
- Design modeling and control of autonomous robotic systems
- Assistive robotic technology
- Energy optimization of autonomous systems
- Monitoring and security of autonomous systems in intelligent environment
- Context awareness using sensor networks
- Network based transmission architecture for controlling autonomous systems
- Real-time network based structure using 
sensors, actuators and transducers, etc.

All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed 
and we will select papers based on their originality,
timeliness, significance, and relevance to the 
workshop. All accepted papers must be presented and
at least on author needs to register for the 
paper to be included in the workshop proceedings.
Submitted papers should not be under 
consideration for publication anywhere else.

The workshop accepts only novel, previously 
unpublished papers. Prospective authors are
encouraged to submit a 5-page standard IEEE 
conference style paper to this workshop (including all
text, figures, and references) through EDAS 
submission system 
(<http://edas.info//N10873 > http://edas.info//N10873 
). <http://www.edas.info).> (If any problem
during submission is encountered, please contact 
the workshop chair). One additional page may be
allowed but with additional publication fee. 
Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop. The
presenter must register for the workshop before 
the deadline for author registration. Failure to register
before the deadline will result in automatic 
withdrawal of the paper from the workshop proceedings
and the program. All papers selected for 
publication will be included in the IEEE GLOBECOM
proceedings and IEEE digital library. For
