We apologize in advance if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.
IEEE ICC 2012: 3rd IEEE International Workshop on SmArt COmmunications
in NEtwork Technologies (SaCoNeT-III)
June 10th-15, 2012
OTTAWA, Canada
Submission Deadline: November 30th, 2011
Acceptance Notification: TBA
Camera Ready Deadline: TBA
Registration Deadline: TBA
 As continuity
of the first and the second edition of SaCoNet (ex. SaCoNaS), the scope of
SaCoNet-III is to deal with the growing overlap between both autonomous systems
and the future generation of network technologies embedded in Internet and
cloud computing for a wide variety of applications (underwater, vehicular,
medical, robotic, etc.). 
SaCoNet focused
on how smart communications has affect some aspects (protocols, design,
equipment, algorithms, paradigm, power, etc.) for a large family of
applications (Healthcare, Medical, Underwater, Vehicular, Robotic, etc.) using
network technologies (Sensor Networks, MANET, VANET, etc.). Indeed, autonomous
applications embedded in complex configurations and dynamic environments have
rapidly expanded from classical 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
emerging networks: sky of clouds, Internet of things, Smart Grids, etc.
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 autonomous systems and smart
network technologies. These applications, (which are based on high-level
commands) accomplish some specific tasks, reveal new challenges regarding
mechanic design, portability, acceptability, power support and efficiency, control
theory, etc. In addition to portability and low-power systems, which are vital
challenges that limit substantially the efficiency of any autonomous system
based 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 the smart network technologies devoted
for different applications for a large variety of domains: Healthcare, Medical,
Underwater, Vehicular, Robotic, etc. Issues related to concepts, new
technologies, testbeds and trials, and protocols will elicit particular
attention.  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 solicits papers addressing, but are not
limited to, the following topics:
·Cloud Computing and Internet of things 
·Architecture and protocol for wireless based sensor
·Vehicular applications of autonomous behavior 
·Underwater applications 
·Rural applications 
·Secure, scalable and low cost network paradigms
·Energy optimization of autonomous systems 
·Autonomous manipulation using service robots 
·Virtual networks and distributed Agent Platform 
·Pervasive communication in autonomous application
·Rehabilitation robotics, exoskeletons, smart textile
clothes and wearable robots applications 
·Context-awareness and ubiquitous applications 
·Techniques of sensing, actuation and recognition 
·Design modeling and control of autonomous robotic
·Assistive robotic technology 
·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 
The workshop accepts only novel, previously unpublished papers.
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit a 5-page standard IEEE conference
style paper (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html)
to this workshop (including all text, figures, and references) through EDAS
submission system (http://edas.info/N11473).
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 (http://www.lissi.fr/saconet2012/doku.php?id=wiki:important_dates).
Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of
the paper from the workshop proceedings and the program.
