Workshop Objectives
The objective of the workshop is to provide an international forum for the discussion of recent developments and advances in the field of multivehicle systems. In-depth discussions of relevant theories and applications related to multivehicle systems are expected, including the presentation of results of applications to real-world land, sea, underwater, aerial and space multi-vehicle systems, as well as strong theoretical contributions. The Workshop will include topics related to cooperative control of multi vehicle systems, distributed sensing, mapping, data acquisition, surveillance & monitoring, fault diagnosis, identification and recovery, navigation, guidance and control of cooperative and coordinated autonomous vehicles in water, land and air.

At least one full registration will be required for each accepted paper by the time of its final upload on the Symposium paper submission web site. Uploaded papers without a corresponding full registration will not be included in the Symposium Program and Proceedings.

The IFAC MVS 2015 Workshop is a joint event with MTS/IEEE OCEANS’15 (http://www.oceans15mtsieeegenova.org). Discounted registration fees will be applied for registrants to both events.

Copyright conditions:
All publication material submitted for presentation at an IFAC-sponsored meeting (Congress, Symposium, Conference, Workshop) must be original and hence cannot be already published, nor can it be under review elsewhere. The authors take responsibility for the material that has been submitted. IFAC-sponsored conferences will abide by the highest standard of ethical behavior in the review process as explained on the Elsevier webpage (http://www.elsevier.com/journal-authors/author-rights-and-responsibilities), but see also the Vancouver protocol, and author information (http://labs.elsevier.com/blog/what-makes-an-author-authorship-contributorship-and-micro-attribution) and the authors will abide by the IFAC publication ethics guidelines (http://www.ifac-control.org/events/organizers-guide/PublicationEthicsGuidelines.pdf/view). Accepted papers that have been presented at an IFAC meeting, will be published in the proceedings of the event using the open-access IFAC-PapersOnLine (http://www.ifac-papersonline.net/ ). To this end, the author(s) must confer the copyright to IFAC when they submit the final version of the paper through the paper submission process. See also http://www.ifac-papersonline.net/static/copyright.html for the personal permission rights to reproduce the published paper on a personal or institutional www-site.
The IPC of the IFAC event may screen presented papers with the purpose of recommending the authors to consider a derivative publication of the presented paper in one of the IFAC Journals (at present: Automatica, Control Engineering Practice, Annual Reviews in Control, Journal of Process Control , Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, and Mechatronics). The IFAC Journals have priority access to all contributions presented at IFAC events. However, if the author(s) is (are) not contacted, within three months after the meeting, the author(s) is (are) free to submit an appropriately modified version of the presented material for journal publication as considered appropriate by the author(s). In this case, the journal outlet may be freely chosen by the author(s).
