Special Issue on Learning based Decision Making in Robotics
Submission Date: 2017-04-30

Aim and Scope This special issue is in continuation of our Robotics Series. This will focus on recent advancement in decision making in robotics as well as future research scenario relevant to all aspects of Robotics, and the challenges in deploying these technologies in various applications. This special issue is expected to be an effective channel for researchers to report on the latest results and findings on decision-making in robotics and related issues while proposing new ideas and directions for future development. Researchers have used many different mechanisms for decision making in robots at different levels. These mechanisms are either supervised vs unsupervised, data-based vs parameters-based, global-grid vs localized, human-controlled or fully-autonomous. The right decisions make robot actions more efficient and valuable in operations, but a lot of work is needed to achieve it in commercialization and wide adaptability. The advanced techniques and applications would make robotics reachable to a wide audience and more applicable areas. Submissions are much appreciable in Medical and Military domains. The topics of this special issue includes: Robotic Guidance Motion Planning Military and Security Manipulation Field Robotics Distributed Systems Data Driven Systems Unsupervised Robots Medical and Biological Robotics Rehabilitation Mobile Systems Industrial Robots Learning Based Solutions Human Interaction Robot Perception Intelligence and Motion Robotics Games Resource Aware Algorithms Localization and Mapping Object Detection and Recognition Submission Guidelines Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contribution to the fields of robotics, as well as their suitability to the special issue, and for their overall quality. The submitted papers have to describe original research which has not been published nor currently under review by other journals or conferences. Guest editors will make an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all submissions. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in presentation or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not be sent to review and authors will be promptly informed in such cases. Author guidelines for preparation of manuscript can be found at: Papers should be submitted via the EES evise application that can be found at: To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for consideration for this special issue, it is important that authors select SI-robot3 as the ‘Article Type’ during the submission process.

Special Issue on Software Engineering for Intelligent Systems and Control
Submission Date: 2017-06-25

The state-of-the-art in the current technology demands an effective system to provide assistance in modeling, solving and operation of complex systems. In order to meet this growing demand, intelligent systems are introduced. Intelligent agents provide cognitive information. Further, to manage these types of information and to perform certain actions on it, intelligent control systems are introduced by utilizing computational approaches such as fuzzy computing, genetic algorithms, pattern recognition etc. Solving complex applications requires advanced intelligent systems. Such intelligent systems incorporate Software Engineering principles and also techniques such as logic and constraint programming, knowledge systems which are further employed for the semantic web services and services in business aspects. An important issue associated with intelligent control system is to exactly acquire human knowledge and then transfer it to computer executable information. In order to resolve this challenge, software tools are used, which facilitates an effective approach. Hence, the dire need to develop such intelligent services has paved the path towards wide scope of research to progress. The aim of this special issue is to focus on the innovative methods that provide solutions for complex issues in intelligent systems. It solicits mainly contributions on illustrating the role of Software Engineering and its applications in development of intelligent control systems. Additionally, this special issue puts forth effective utilization of software tools in developing wireless-based intelligent control systems.

The boom of cloud technologies and cloud data storage has been a forerunner and enabler to the growth of Big Data. These technologies have substantial advantages over conventional physical deployments. However, better performance and efficiency of data analysis require a clear distinction of the boundaries between the private clouds, public clouds, and Internet of Things (IoT). A common approach to tackle this issue is to develop Big Data in the Cloud to deliver everything as a Service. The projects in this domain regularly exhibit unpredictable, bursting, or immense computing power and storage needs. At the same time, the stakeholders expect swift, inexpensive, and dependable products and project outcomes. The main objective of this special issue is to assort these challenges into different categories and seek the best articles, demonstrations, recommendations and solutions in the following areas: Topics: Innovative Cloud Infrastructure for Big Data Mobile-Driven Cloud Computing Scientific Computing, Data Management and Analytics in Cloud Big Data and Cloud for Enterprise, Government and Society Big Data for Cloud-assisted, IoT-based Cyber-Physical Systems Big Data and Cloud for Improving Resilient Infrastructure Automatic Business Process and Workflow Management in Clouds Multimedia Applications in Mobile Cloud Environments Big Data and Cloud Research and Project Experience in Biomedical, Energy and Environment Control, Service Systems in Tourism, Transportation and Urban Planning, Vertical Markets – Telecom, Sensors, Social Networking, Smart Cities, Food and Agriculture. Case Studies of Big Data Value Creation This special issue will consider substantially extended versions of papers presented at ICBDCC17 – International Conference on Big Data and Cloud Computing (Conference URL: as well as external submissions.
