This is the final call for contributions to the half-day ICRA workshop on on “Marine Robot Navigation and Localization”.

This workshop focuses on the specific challenges of localization and navigation in unstructured and GPS-denied underwater environments - including but not limited to: 
	• New technologies and algorithms for cheaper / better marine vehicle navigation
	• Marine robot perception and mapping
	• Simultaneous localization and mapping in marine environments
	• Cooperative localization in marine environments
	• Marine robot belief space planning
	• Demonstrations of advanced navigation and localization in the field - particularly in the case of long-term or multi-robot experiments.
