SHARC2023, 14th National Conference on Software and Hardware Architectures for Robots Control

June 26th - 28th 2023
Brest, France



SHARC is an interdisciplinary annual scientific workshop on software and hardware architectures for robots and autonomous systems control. SHARC2023 is sponsored by the working group Robot Control Architecture (GT4) of the GdR ROBOTIQUE (http://www.gdr-robotique.org/groupes_de_travail/?id=4)

This conference is aimed at addressing all important aspects of robot, autonomous and cyberphysical control architectures. It brings together researchers and practitioners from universities, institutions and industries, working in this field. It intends to be a meeting to expose and discuss gathered expertise, identified trends and issues, as well as new scientific results and applications around control architectures and autonomous systems topics.

SHARC2023 organizers also plan to have a couple of invited speakers.

SHARC2023 will also include half-a-day focused on Marine Applications.


Due to their increasing complexity, the design and the development of nowadays autonomous robots definitely raise huge scientific issues. This complexity mainly derives from the integration of multiple functionalities (advanced perception, planning, navigation, localization, control, coordination, etc.) more or less directly bound to some fast evolving technologies for sensing, communication, localization, computing, etc. Robots can be equipped with such functions if an appropriate hardware and software structure is embedded to integrate them: the architectures of robot control systems, and how to design, develop and validate them, is hence the main concern of this workshop.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- concurrency and distribution in control architectures, robotic middlewares, networked robotics systems, cloud robotics
- models, languages, methodologies and tools for the design/development/integration/test/deployment of complex robot control architectures.
- verification & validation, simulation and tests of complex robotic systems
- management of real-time deterministic execution of robotic software
- management of non functional aspects of robotic systems, robot software and hardware co-design
- standardization and reuse of robot software and/or hardware
- state of the art engineering practices in robotics
- security of robotic systems
- programming and execution of complex autonomous mission ; multi-robot missions ; human supervision of autonomous systems
- fault-tolerant, performances driven , self-adaptive robotic systems
- integration of machine learning algorithms in control architectures
