Wireless Sensor, Robot and UAV networks are the confluence point where 
the traditional fields of wireless communications, robotics and control 
theory meet.
In this kind of networks, nodes collaborate to accomplish distributed 
sensing and actuation tasks. Leveraged by the control and mobility of 
actors, the networking process and applications embrace a whole new set 
of possibilities.
Autonomous cooperative systems, made of intelligent devices (such as 
robots and UAVs), may deploy, repair and relocate sensors to improve 
coverage, build routes and fix network partition to ensure data 
communication, change network topology to shape routing patterns and 
balance energy consumption, and respond to reported events in a timely 
and effective manner. The benefits are limited only by imagination. As 
an emerging field, the 5G architecture foresees explicitly the usage of 
these specialized systems and offer new networking techniques, by which 
they can fully exploit their particularities and potentials.

WiSARN aims at bringing together state-of-the-art contributions on the 
design, specification and implementation of architectures, algorithms 
and protocols for current and future applications of such systems.

It is required that the manuscript follows the standard IEEE 
camera-ready format (double column, 10-pt font) and be submitted as PDF 
file (formatted for 8.5-11 inch paper) as well as the requirement set by 
the EDAS paper submission system. Submitted paper must be original and 
unpublished papers with no longer than 6 pages. The direct link for 
paper submission is: http://edas.info/N24225.

All accepted papers of INFOCOM (main program and workshops), after being 
presented onsite at the conference, will be included in the proceedings 
to be submitted for publication in IEEE Xploreš.


Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication 
in the IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems journal (see 
http://sites.bu.edu/tcns/ for submission instructions).
