                              IMAV 2014
                   International Micro Air Vehicle
                   Conference and Competition

        August 12 - 15, 2014. Delft, the Netherlands


The paper deadline of the IMAV 2014 is approaching: May 1, 2014.  

You can find the templates for the papers here:

The conference focuses on research in all areas related to Micro Air
Vehicles, with suggested topics including:
- Low-Reynolds and MAV aerodynamics
- Enhanced autonomy and artificial intelligence applied to MAVs
- Sense and Avoid
- MAV swarms, formation flight
- Flapping wings, morphing and bio-inspired MAVs
- Vision-based sensing
- Control theory and state estimation
- Autonomous navigation in GPS-denied environments
- Design methodologies and optimization
- System architecture for MAV operation
- MAV applications and flight testing

Authors may submit two kinds of papers: scientific papers and technical
papers (both maximum 8 pages). Scientific papers will be subjected to a
single-blind review process of the entire article. All papers will be
assigned a DOI and will be available in the TU Delft repository. The authors
of the articles nominated for the best paper award will have the opportunity
to participate in an expedited review process in the International Journal
on Micro Air Vehicles (http://www.multi-science.co.uk/ijmav.htm).

Important dates:
Submission deadline:                May 1, 2014
Notification deadline:              June 15, 2014
Camera ready submission:    June 30, 2014


The IMAV 2014 will have a single competition, which combines outdoor and
indoor elements - and transitions between outdoor and indoor spaces. The
competition will simulate a disaster response scenario, in which the teams
will have to give an overview of the situation in "Oostdorp", a village
constructed by the Ministry of Defense for exercise purposes. The teams have
to perform tasks such as indicating which roads are blocked and finding out
how many survivors there are inside the houses.  

Teams can borrow Parrot AR drones for participating in the competition. The
Parrot AR drone is a stable and easily programmable quad rotor equipped with
cameras for potential use by computer vision. Since recently, it can be
expanded with a GPS and used with the Paparazzi open source autopilot code
for autonomous flight outdoors.

Teams can also receive MATLAB licenses and support from MathWorks for the
modelling of their MAVs. Notably, a model of the Parrot AR drone is
available for the teams. 

A selection round is organized for teams that want to join the competition.
Teams that want to participate in the competition will have to submit a team
video before June 1, 2014.
