As continuity of the first and the second edition of SaCoNet (ex. SaCoNaS), the scope of SaCoNet-III 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.).  The objective 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.). 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 networks
·Vehicular applications of autonomous behavior
·Underwater applications
·Rural applications
·Secure, scalable and low cost network paradigms applications
·Energy optimization of autonomous systems
·Autonomous manipulation using service robots
·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 applications
·Techniques of sensing, actuation and recognition
·Design modeling and control of autonomous robotic systems
·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.
