ACROSS Workshop on Cooperative Systems

(WoCS 2014)

September 10-12, 2014, Dubrovnik, Croatia



ACROSS Workshop on Cooperative Systems is an open workshop intended to bring together international and Croatian community of researchers and industry professionals who have interest in four strategic research domains: robotics; networked embedded systems; renewable energy sources; and control methods.

The aim of the Workshop is to promote inter-disciplinary approach and foster exchange of ideas between researchers from various fields, from academia or industry.

Workshop Venue

Workshop will be organized in Dubrovnik, Croatia, which is located on the Adriatic Sea coast in the extreme
south of Dalmatia.

The very favourable geographical position of Dubrovnik made its development based on maritime and merchant activities very successful through its history. George Bernard Shaw was enchanted by this beautiful city, about which he said "those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and see Dubrovnik", as well as, famously, describing it as "the pearl of the Adriatic". Dubrovnik, with its amazing Old Town, became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.


Dear Colleagues,


I am honoured to welcome you to the 1st ACROSS Workshop on Cooperative Systems - WoCS 2014, which is held on September 10-12, 2014 in the Grand Hotel Park, Dubrovnik, Croatia. The workshop is organized by the Centre of Research Excellence for Advanced Cooperative systems (ACROSS Centre for short) of the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, which is funded by the European Commission under FP7-REGPOT-2011-1 ACROSS project (grant No. 285939).

The key idea of the ACROSS project is to utilize inter-disciplinary approach for cooperative systems in four strategic research domains: cognitive systems and robotics, networked embedded systems, renewable energy systems, and control methods. The objective of the workshop is to foster exchange of ideas between internationally leading experts from various fields and to highlight challenges in the area of cooperative systems and their applications in ACROSS strategic research domains.

The workshop program includes invited lectures by twenty three distinguished researchers from thirteen countries presenting state-of-the-art research and development in: cooperative renewable energy systems, cooperative robotic systems, autonomous robotic systems, human-robot cooperative systems, advanced sensing and signal processing for cooperative systems, cooperative and optimal control, and cooperative networked embedded systems. Furthermore, the program is enriched with eleventh brief talks by the ACROSS Centre leading experts as well as with forty nine posters organised in three poster sessions presenting research activities of research groups from ACROSS Centre and several collaborating research centres.

I wish you all a pleasant and successful participation in the 1st ACROSS Workshop on Cooperative Systems.

With my best wishes,


Ivan Petrović
