Extended Deadline (Feb. 17, 2014) and Last Call for Papers

2014 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (ICUAS'14)

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, 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. 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.

Honorary guests and keynote speakers (currently confirmed):
- Peter van Blyenburgh, President and Founder Unmanned Vehicle Systems
- Ing. Carmine Cifaldi, Italian Civil Aviation Authority, Director,
Aeronautical Products Certification & Regulation
- Dr. Naira Hovakimyan, Dept. of Mechanical Science and Engineering Advanced
Control Research Laboratory University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
- Mark A. Motter, PhD, PE, NASA Langley Research Center
