CRV Underwater Robotics Workshop

Abstract deadline: Extended to April 22 **

This is a call for participation in a Workshop on Underwater Robotics to be held on May 24 on the campus of Memorial University in St. John's, Canada. This workshop is associated with the Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV) ( which is held jointly with the Canadian Conferences on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Graphics Interface (GI) on the Memorial University campus from May 25-27.

This event will be open to the public and there will be no requirement to register for the AI/GI/CRV conference. We welcome submissions from academic researchers and from industry on topics related to Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), and any other applications of robotic autonomy in the underwater domain. Suitable topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Autonomous mission planning
  • Perception from acoustic and optical images
  • Navigation, mapping, and localization
  • Multi-vehicle communication and coordination
  • Fault tolerance Unique propulsion strategies
  • Operations in harsh environments

Those wishing to present should e-mail the organizers with an abstract describing their topic by April 15, 2011. Notifications of acceptance will be returned by April 22.
