[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Paper 2nd International Symposium on Aerial Robotics

Giuseppe Loianno
Dear Colleagues,
this is the last call for paper submission for 2nd International
Symposium on Aerial Robotics. The deadline is May 4, 2018.

The symposium will be held at the University of Pennsylvania,
Philadelphia on 11-12 June 2018.
website: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__aerialrobotics.seas.upenn.edu_&d=DwICAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=TAce63FtBEkSOHXECGblpAFO0RI9eqjTqcSLWDbLGj4&s=S5hYNYu1iheImkFJdFZcP7cJbMgcu0j2nvLlhYup0fs&e=

People are invited to submit abstracts (2 pages) and full length papers
(up to 8 pages).
We expect to publish the best contributions in a Springer Tracts in
Advanced Robotics book.
The symposium will highlight advances in aerial robotics and provide
opportunities to network with robotics and drone experts in academia,
government, and industry.

In addition to academic institutions, we have 2 industry sponsors
Qualcomm and DJI.
A tentative program will be available shortly.
We have planned an impressive list of speakers and events both from
academia and industry.

The registration fee is $112 for anyone. The registration link is
available at

------------------ Motivation---------------
Autonomous micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are beginning to play
an important role in tasks like search and rescue, environment
monitoring, security surveillance, transportation and inspection. Small
scale size vehicles have to quickly and autonomously navigate in narrow
outdoor and indoor environments, in cities or other dense environments.
They must be able to actively explore unknown areas while avoiding
collisions by creating maps using on board sensors. This symposium will
address design and navigation solutions for UAVs. We expect to bring
together researchers from academia and industry in the area of control,
design, closed-loop control and navigation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

------------------ Call for Papers----------
The abstract and paper versions should be a paper in pdf standard IEEE
format. Accepted papers will be made available on the website, and
authors will be invited to give a presentation and present their work.
A link is available at
We expect to publish all accepted contributions in a Springer Tracts in
Advanced Robotics book.
