Dear Colleague,

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a paper for a Special Issue on 
Marine Robotics Systems of the Journal of Intelligent Service Robotics 
(by Springer).

The demand for advanced marine robot technologies has been growing. 
During the last decade, the marked progress in marine technologies and 
robotics has led to massive improvements of a new and very active area 
of applied research: Marine Robotics. The state of the art and some 
achievements in this area are particularly innovative.

The primary goal of this special issue is to present recent advancement 
in unmanned underwater (UUVs) and surface (USVs) robotic vehicle 
technologies. This special issue is organized by the Marine Robotics 
Technical Committee of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. 
Original, high quality research papers in marine robotics are invited. 
Papers addressing one or more of the topics below are of particular 

- UUVs for underwater intervention, with particular attention to 
solution and application examples of autonomous or remotely operated 
underwater manipulation systems.
- Underwater target localization and tracking
- Communication, mapping, sensor data processing, and localization and 
navigation techniques for UUVs or USVs
- Multiple UUV or USV systems for various applications.

The deadline for paper submission is:

=== March 04, 2011 ===
