GrowMeUp at RO-MAN 2017

The GrowMeUp project is support one of the Special Sessions of the IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication (IEEE RO-MAN 2017), entitled: "Cloud Technologies: Empowering Robots to Connect Society".

The main aim of this session is to bring together researchers working on robotics, cloud computing, data analytics, innovative ICT services development, and machine learning and together exploit recent advances in these fields combined. The special session is designed towards discussing innovative, breakthrough research ideas that can potentially create social and economical value to society.In particular, distributed machine learning, robot-cloud architectures, standards and information sharing are promoted as key innovations that should be brought to discussion towards novel application domains. Papers addressing cloud-connected robots in the following areas are particularly welcome:

(1) Big-Data Analytics and Cloud-based Distributed Machine Learning

(2) Distributed service provision using cloud technologies for Active and Healthy Ageing

(3) Adaptable and Connected Social Robotic Systems

(4) Distributed Robot-Cloud Architectures and Services.
