The 1st UVS-Oman 2019 Conference will be organized by the College of
Engineering at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) from 5 to 7 February 2019.
This three-day event aims to bring together leading academicians,
researchers, engineers, industrialists, and regulators to increase
awareness, share views, and exchange ideas and field experiences on numerous
aspects of Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS). The conference is expected to
provide an opportunity to network researchers, practitioners, students, and
hobbyists to enrich interdisciplinary UVS and related platforms and present
the most recent innovations, trials, future trends, applications, concerns
as well as challenges and solutions developed and applied in the various
fields of applications. A number of workshops, students’ projects
competition, and an exhibition on UVS will be held during the event.

The range of targeted topics is very broad, but priority is given to
subjects on real world applications; including: research, industry,
business, and education. The conference organizers are expecting authors to
submit proposals for paper presentations, demonstrations, and poster
contributions on any engineering topic relevant to UVS. More details about
the event are available from the conference website https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__uvsc.om_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=TbxaseDVZYaVqoj04FxZnkg4Ls6UfYF4yO6cXTBUBgs&s=3bu1z4VCr6OUgUJ7fxPj6YP4Jn6YMncJYS-BIBuqzVo&e= . Any
comments or requests on the conference may be submitted by email to
secretary at uvsc.om or eng at squ.edu.om

Several half-day or full-day workshops and tutorials will be organized with
the aim to offer participants an opportunity to engage in professional
exchange of ideas in an interactive and interpersonal setting in areas of
research that are relevant to the conference. The workshops are aimed at
creating awareness among the researchers, manufacturers, industries,
regulators, and other authorities, and end users of UVS regarding the
current development, recent trends and research potentials in different
aspects of UVS; promoting and facilitating the growth of the region’s
unmanned vehicle systems community through education, and exchange of ideas
and technologies.

On the sidelines of the conference, the Students’ UVS Challenge Competition
will be organized by the College of Engineering from 05-07 February 2019.
The competition is open for University, College, and High School students’
teams. Interested teams are expected to design and develop an Unmanned
Vehicle System (UVS) of their own or use a UVS to deliver a package as close
as possible to a fixed destination by maneuvering over hurdles that will be
present in the course of flight or ground path, and return back to the
command and control center. The package delivery done remotely by the UVS
Controller or autonomously through an on-board system. The UVS controller
must control the UVS remotely. Teams will not be able to see the UVS during
its path to the destination and return journey. The competition will take
place in two categories i.e. teams from high schools and teams from
universities and colleges.

*Main Topics*The range of targeted topics is very broad, but priority is
given to subjects on real world applications; including: research, industry,
business, and education. Based on this, prospective authors are invited to
