Submission Guidelines
Authors should submit a 1 page abstract of their posters (preferably
pdf) by email to
srikanth.saripalli at asu.edu, by April 30, 2009.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) by nature are complex dynamical
systems that present several challenges in estimation, guidance and
control.  UAV research involves the interdisciplinary synthesis of
flight dynamics, estimation theory, real-time control and embedded
system development. The proposed workshop is intended to better
understand design, development, guidance and navigation of UAVs in
complex, feature-rich environments. The workshop will include talks by
a number of leading researchers in these fields, and a poster session
in which especially students are encouraged to present their latest
research.    A key goal of the workshop is to provide a venue to allow
discussion and cross-pollination of ideas coming from the control,
robotics and learning communities.


We invite posters from researchers working in the following areas:
- Navigation
- Collision avoidance
- Multi-aircraft coordination
- Novel sensing and state estimation methods
- Applications: mapping, search and rescue, inspection, patrolling.

Students are especially encouraged to submit their work to the workshop.
