Submissions Due: 30 September 2024

Important Dates

  • Submission Deadline: 30 September 2024
  • Publication: (tentative) First Half of 2025

Authors are invited to submit a manuscript to the special section on Emerging Computing Architectures, Technologies and Applications for Smart Robotics Systems (ECATA4SRS-2024). Relevant topics of interest to this special section include (but are not limited to):

  • Emerging computing-based systems: modelling, navigation, control and environmental perception for smart robotics systems.
  • Computing models and architectures for the implementation of cyber physical systems and digital twin to enable smart robotics and autonomous systems. 
  • Safety-critical computing systems.
  • Theoretical and empirical data analytics and real-time decision making with robots-in-the-loop.
  • Architectures and applications for social and cognitive computing in smart robotics systems, i.e., human-robot collaboration, humanoid robots, swarm robots, etc.
  • Custom computing architectures for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) used in smart robotics systems.
  • Emerging computing architectures, applications and topics in support to real world smart robotics systems.

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must include new significant research-based technical contributions in the scope of the journal. Purely theoretical, technological or lacking methodological-and-generality papers are not suitable to this thematic section. The submissions must include clear evaluations of the proposed solutions (based on simulation and/or implementations results) and comparisons to state-of-the-art solutions. For additional information please contact the Guest Editors by sending an email exclusively to

Papers under review elsewhere are not acceptable for submission. Extended versions of published conference papers (to be included as part of the submission together with a summary of differences) are welcome but there must have at least 40% of new impacting technical/scientific material in the submitted journal version and there should be less than 50% verbatim similarity level as reported by a tool (such as CrossRef). Guidelines concerning the submission process, LaTeX and Word templates can be found here. While submitting through ScholarOne. please select the option “Special Section on Applications of Emerging Computing Technologies to Smart Robotics and Autonomous Systems (ECATA4SRS-2024)“. As per TETC policies, only full-length papers (10-16 pages with technical material, double-column – papers beyond 12 pages will be subject to MOPC, as per CS policies) can be submitted to special/thematic sections. References should not exceed 45 items and each Author’s bio should not exceed 150 words. Authors are also invited to comply with the journal’s policies about the maximum number of self-references.
