        ISVC Symposium: December 12-14, 2016 

Aerial robots are currently at the forefront of robotics research and have
managed to raise great interest within our societies. Market estimates
predict a -wider than ever expected- vast integration of such technologies
in a variety of commercial and professional applications. Enabling factors
for this trend are the miniaturization and great cost reduction of the
enabling technologies, in combination with the dazzling progress in the
fields of modeling and aerodynamics, pioneering mechanical design, avionics,
advanced motion control, machine learning, sensing and estimation, computer
vision, path planning, decision–making and autonomous behaviors,
distributed, networked and multi–agent systems, as well as human–robot
interaction. Within this special track, we aim to investigate and discuss
what is still missing towards achieving advanced navigational and
operational autonomy for aerial robots. Towards a productive event, we
welcome papers from all the relevant scientific fields and disciplines,
solid contributions or promising preliminary results that break new ground
and try to advance, robustify and increase the reliability of aerial robots.
Furthermore, we invite application–oriented papers that present new methods
and solutions towards the goal of integrating aerial robotics as a new class
of intelligent agents able to support our collective societal needs. 

The topics of interest of this special track include but are not limited to
the following areas: 
        * Applications of Aerial Robotics 
        * Autonomous Navigation 
        * Big–Data and Aerial Robots 
        * Distributed Systems 
        * Energy Efficient Aerial Robotics 
        * Fault–Tolerant and Fail–Safe Systems 
        * Field Robotics 
        * Flight Control Systems 
        * Guidance and Navigation 
        * Human–Robot Interaction 
        * Machine Learning for Aerial Robots 
        * Motion Control 
        * Multi–Robot Systems 
        * Networked Systems 
        * Path Planning 
        * Robotic Vision for Aerial Robots 
        * Sensor Technologies 
        * Simulation and Modeling 
        * Simultaneous Localization And Mapping 
        * State Estimation and Sensor Fusion 

**Paper Submission Procedure:** 
Papers submitted to this ISVC 2016 Special Track must not have been
previously published and must not be currently under consideration for
publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should be submitted in camera-ready
formal and should not exceed 12 pages, including figures and tables (see
