International Workshop on Underwater Robotics

The OES announces an international workshop on underwater robotics in Genova, Italy, Nov. 9-11, 2005. The workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers and developers in the field of Underwater Robotics to

discuss and understand the state-of-the-art and the cutting-edge topics in applying advanced robotic technology for sustainable management of marine ecosystems and environmental monitoring. Particular emphasis will be given to the exploitation of existing robotic platforms for scientific applications at sea highlighting how advanced robotics research could be driven by effective

application problems. Cutting edge research on multi-vehicle coordination and heterogeneous fleet control will be examined with particular attention to international cooperations.

According to the website abstracts were due on June 30. My apologies for the late notice, I was just made aware of the workshop. Perhaps immediate contact with the conference organizers will hold a space for your paper?
