The IEEE Transactions on Robotics invites submissions to a Special Issue on Resilience in Networked Robotic Systems


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have extended the submission deadline to: 15 June 2020

There is a substantive body of work on methods providing robustness to robotic systems, but research on resilience is scattered, and the distinction between resilience and robustness is still poorly understood. As a result, this special issue has two main goals: (1) to provide a deeper understanding of resilience for networked systems and (2) to assemble works that demonstrate the importance of resilient methods. In an effort to disseminate the current advances in designing and operating resilient robotic networks, and to stimulate a discussion on the future research directions in this field, the IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) invites papers for a Special Issue in this area. Researchers are invited to submit papers on the foundational, algorithmic, and experimental aspects of design, modeling, control and validation of resilience in robotic networks.

Topics include networked robotic systems, multi-robot systems, and collaborative human-robot teams. Topics of particular interest include, but are not restricted to:

* Coordination for resilience
* Perception-action-communication loops for resilience
* Networking and topology control for resilience
Resilience against adversarial robots
* Abstraction, synthesis, and validation of resilient behaviors
* Formalization of redundancy and heterogeneity
* Machine learning in networked teams
* Game theory in networked teams

Projected publication date: Early 2021
