Dear Colleagues,

this is a gentle reminder to invite you to actively participate to the 
IROS 2018 Workshop “Hand-Shaking Advanced Control in Marine Robotics 


The half-day workshop will be held on October, 5th in Madrid, Spain, in 
conjunction with the 2018 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on 
Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2018).

We are looking for last minute proposals and statements on the topic. We 
will accept posters and we will select the best ones for oral 
presentation. If you are interested send a title and a 300 word abstract.

Contributions are due within July 31st. Acceptance notification will be 
sent within August 7th.
Please send your proposals to Enrica Zereik (enrica.zereik at cnr.it) 
and/or Fabio Bonsignorio (fabio.bonsignorio at santannapisa.it).

*Important dates*

*July 31st: *Submission of abstracts*
**August 7th: *Notification of acceptance*
**October 5th: *Workshop

The very aim of this workshop is the fostering of new ideas and 
discussion, by teaming together researchers and practitioners from  
Control Theory and Engineering and Marine Robotics communities.

We already have valuable confirmed speakers: Prof. Oussama Khatib 
(Stanford University), Prof. Gianluca Antonelli (University of Cassino 
and Southern Lazio), Prof. Kristin Y. Pettersen (NTNU), Prof. Luis 
Santiago Garrido (UC3M), Prof. Fabio Bonsignorio (The BioRobotics 
Institute, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna).

Speakers will give a lecture of about 15-20 minutes, depending on how 
many abstracts are selected.

There will be also time for open discussion, aiming to frame a factual 
dialogue between communities..

We are now at a point where it would be really useful and fruitful to 
exchange perspectives and ideas, in order to foster advancements in the 
field. Indeed, Marine Robotics is posing new challenges that can be 
solved together with the Control Theory and Engineering community, who 
in turn can benefit from these new challenges to evolve control 

The workshop will deal with current challenges in their field and 
requirements for advanced guidance navigation and control systems of 
marine platforms. More specifically, topics will range from robots for 
deep ocean exploration, underwater manipulation, human-robot 
collaboration and biomimetics applied to marine applications, as well as 
advanced control theory and algorithms with strong applications to the 

We will discuss these issues and we welcome your opinions on the topic!

All the best

Enrica Zereik and Fabio Bonsignorio
