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.
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
