** Abstract deadline: April 15 **

This is a call for participation in a Workshop on Underwater Robotics to
be held on May 24 on the campus of Memorial University in St. John's,
Canada. This workshop is associated with the Canadian Conference on
Computer and Robot Vision (CRV) (http://www.computerrobotvision.org/)
which is held jointly with the Canadian Conferences on Artificial
Intelligence (AI) and Graphics Interface (GI) on the Memorial University
campus from May 25-27.

This event will be open to the public and there will be no requirement to
register for the AI/GI/CRV conference. We welcome submissions from
academic researchers and from industry on topics related to Autonomous
Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), and any
other applications of robotic autonomy in the underwater domain. Suitable
topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
* Autonomous mission planning
* Perception from acoustic and optical images
* Navigation, mapping, and localization
* Multi-vehicle communication and coordination
* Fault tolerance Unique propulsion strategies
* Operations in harsh environments

Those wishing to present should e-mail the organizers with an abstract
describing their topic by April 15, 2011. Notifications of acceptance will
be returned by April 22.
