Dear colleagues,
I would like to draw your attention on the workshop we are organizing at the IEEE IRC 2019 Conference in Naples.

The workshop title is "Enabling factors for the boost of marine robots in real world applications", and will take place at the The Third IEEE International Conference on Robotic Computing 
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__roboticcomputing.org_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=j816tiPBtCmIQwJkafsGBF1EYxY3jr6zSNEt6waGlgw&s=31v0QwP879e2D_1bIiaOTkPTsFwyjjLJk9uW2XN0WFQ&e=) in Naples, Italy, February 25-27 2019.
The workshop will start at 10:40 on 27 February 2019 in Sala B of the Congress Centre Federico II.


The boundaries between Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics are becoming thinner, and an interdisciplinary approach is the way to address the complex challenges presented by the marine scenario. New computing approaches and sensor processing techniques such as machine learning are becoming more and more popular to analyze large datasets of sonar and underwater cameras. GPU computing has opened new possibilities for real-time sensing and processing of high data density sensors like Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS). Improved sensing, together with a higher degree of autonomy, is increasing the range of possible real world operations.
The workshop will explore these interconnections between the different fields with the aim to give an answer to the questions arisen by the Maritime Domain. We believe this will stimulate a large interest among the IRC 2019 attendees, both among robotics researchers and among scientists more interested in computing, sensing and AI topics.
