We apologize in advance if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.
SaCoNet III: Extended Deadline Dec 20, 2011 and Selected papers published
in International Journal of Internet Protocol Technology.

IEEE ICC 2012: 3rd IEEE International Workshop on SmArt COmmunications in
NEtwork Technologies (SaCoNeT-III)
Selected best papers of the workshop will invited for further
consideration for a Special issue of the International Journal of Internet
Protocol Technology
To be held in conjunction with the
IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC 2012)
http://www.ieee-icc.org/index.html, Ottawa Canada.

Submission deadline: 20 December 2011
Submission Link: http://edas.info/N11473
Authors Notification: 10 February 2012
Final Manuscript: 31 March 2012
Workshop Date: June 10 -15 2012

Selected best papers of the workshop will invited for further
consideration for a Special issue of the International Journal of Internet
Protocol Technology:
planned shortly after the workshop with an expected publication date of 2012.

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 (
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.
