Dear Colleagues and Friends:

On behalf of the ICUAS'14 Organizing Committee, this is to invite you to submit your contributions to the 2014 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems, ICUAS'14, http://www.uasconferences.com<http://www.uasconferences.com/>, to be held in Orlando, FL, on May 27-30, 2014. The conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE CSS and RAS.

Orlando is the home of the Disney World, one of the best attractions and touristic locations worldwide. May 27 will be a Workshop/Tutorial day, followed by a three-day technical Conference. Judging from the interest ICUAS has drawn over the past six years and its growth, ICUAS'14 is expected to attract the highest number of participants from academia, industry, federal/state agencies, government, the private sector, users, practitioners and engineers who wish to be affiliated with and contribute technically to this highly demanding and rapidly evolving and expanding field. Information about the organization may be found at www.icuas.com<http://www.icuas.com/>. The theme of ICUAS'14 will focus on the very challenging topics of 'developing UAS standards'.

ICUAS'14 aims at bringing together different groups of qualified military and civilian representatives worldwide, organization representatives, funding agencies, industry and academia, to discuss the current state of UAS advances, and the roadmap to their full utilization in military and integration in civilian domains. Focused interests of diverse groups involved in UAS research and development will be discussed. Special emphasis will be given to current and future research opportunities, and to 'what comes next' in terms of the essential technologies that need to be utilized to advance further UAS.

Through Keynote/Plenary addresses, invited and solicited presentations, and round table discussions, it is expected that the outcome of the Conference will be a better understanding of what industry, the military and civilian national and international authorities need, and what are the crucial next steps that need to be completed before UAS are widely accepted even in everyday life applications.
