Apologize for multiple posting.




June 20th, 2011. Tallinn, Estonia. Full day


organized by
Giovanni Indiveri, Gianluca Antonelli and Maarja Kruusmaa.

TALLINN JUNE 20 - 23 / 2011

All interested researchers and practitioners are kindly invited to participate.


Workshop Abstract:

Marine robotics is a rapidly growing field within applied and fundamental research. The workshop aims at presenting recent results from academy and industry with a particular emphasis on research projects. The scope of the workshop is broad as it aims at bringing together scientist working on diverse issues ranging from bio-inspired robot design, to sensors, navigation, guidance and control of single and multiple vehicle systems, marine manipulation, and applications as surveillance or archeological studies. The Workshop is scheduled to be a full day event: each speaker will have a maximum of 25 minutes for her/his presentation. A time slot for questions and discussion will be allocated after each presentation in order to foster exchange of ideas and interaction among the participants. A final round-table discussion will also be organized in order to focus on the main issues that will have been raised during the workshop. The presentations and eventual additional material of behalf of the speakers will be collected and distributed to the participants.

The workshop also brings together most of the currently active FP7 projects in Europe concerned with Marine Robotics. As such it strengthens the European Robotics community as well as adds new perspectives from participants outside Europe.


Primary/secondary audience

Academic and industrial researchers in the field of robotics, oceanography, marine biology, geophysics and marine sciences, Ph.D. students in robotics, computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering. 


Under the auspices of:

The IEEE RAS Technical Committee in Marine Robotics and the IFAC Technical Committee TC 7.2. Marine Systems. The organization of the workshop is also supported by the Italian inter-university center on Integrated Systems for the Marine Environment ISME.
