[robotics-worldwide] [journals] CFP: Special Issue on Intelligence in Advances in Underwater Robotics - an open access, journal publishes its 7th volume by MDPI

Karina Gao
Dear Colleagues,

Robotics has long established itself as the key technology for the
exploration and exploitation of the underwater environment, as well as
for all or almost all other activities that are performed under the sea
surface. Underwater robotic vehicles, either remotely operated or
autonomous, and robotic platforms are now commercially available and
widely used in oceanography, environmental monitoring, marine biology,
underwater archaeology, the subsea oil and gas industry, deep sea
mining, marine farming and aquaculture, naval warfare, maritime
transport and communication security, maritime installation maintenance,
and recreational activities at sea.

The importance and richness of resources for the development of human
activities in the underwater environment and its intrinsic hostility
motivate and challenge science and technology to conceive and construct
ever more efficient robotic tools and techniques. In particular, there
is a great demand for advances that may increase the functional and
behavioral autonomy of underwater robots, facilitate human/machine
interaction in the underwater environment, simplify the operability of
complex platforms, reduce costs, and increase safety, reliability and
efficiency.

The objective of this Special Issue is to facilitate the understanding
of challenges and needs and to provide visibility for recent
breakthroughs in underwater robotics. The achievement of this objective
will contribute to improving the state-of-the-art and to promoting
further advances in the area, as well as to open the way to new viable
applications.

The submission deadline is 30 September 2019. You may send your
manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be
under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage
authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial
Office in advance ([hidden email]).

 From Volume 6, all published papers will be added in Scopus. The journal
is also indexed in Web of Science (Thomson Reuters), as part of the ESCI
database.

Robotics is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by
readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as
indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors
and their institutes. An Article Processing Charge (APC) of CHF 350
currently applies to all accepted papers. You may be entitled to a
discount if you have previously received a discount code or if your
institute is participating in the MDPI Institutional Open Access Program
(IOAP), for more information see: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.mdpi.com_about_ioap&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=1sUUSeSCEhq2Ux_BWujmzWg-NGJo_PLzP1DfzVF-C1U&s=GVRPJMgi02zgM040fn6YtummNcg8DXZQqcvj79LtBmQ&e=.
