[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Participation - IROS 2018 Workshop - Hand-Shaking Advanced Control in Marine Robotics Applications

Enrica Zereik-2

Dear Colleagues,

this is to invite you to actively participate to the IROS 2018 Workshop
*“Hand-Shaking Advanced Control in Marine Robotics Applications”

The half-day workshop will be held on October, 5th in Madrid, Spain, in
conjunction with the 2018 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on
Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2018).

The workshop program is the following:

9:00 - 9:15 *Welcome Message*- /Fabio Bonsignorio & Enrica Zereik/
9.15 - 9:45 *Bio-inspired Articulated Autonomous Intervention
Vehicles*- /Kristin Y. Pettersen/
9:45 - 10:30 *Fast-Marching Algorithm Applications in Marine
Robotic**s* - /Luis Santiago Garrido/
10:30 - 11:00 *Marine Vessel with Blockchain Based Sensors Network for
Environmental Monitoring*- /Aleksandar Kapitonov and Sergey Lonshakov/
11:00 - 11:30 /COFFEE BREAK/
11:30 - 12:00 *The Age of Human-Robot Collaboration: Deep Sea
Exploration*-/Oussama Khatib/
12:00 - 12:30 *Recent Advances in Underwater Manipulation within the
DexROV European Project*- /Gianluca Antonelli/
12:30 - 13:00 *Marine Robotics as a Real-world Experimental Test-bed
for Advanced Control Theory and Engineering*- /Fabio Bonsignorio/



for updated info!


After the workshop we will invite all interested colleagues to
contribute to post-proceedings  in the new Research Topic in Frontiers
in Robotics and AI, see here for more details and updated info:



*Important dates*

October 5^th : Workshop

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

Enrica and Fabio
