ICUAS 2011 : 2011 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems
Call For Papers
The 2011 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems is the successor of the annual UAV Symposiums that took place between 2008 and 2010. ICUAS'11 aims at bringing together different groups of qualified military and civilian representatives worldwide, organization representatives, funding agencies, industry and academia, private sector and investment group representatives to discuss the current state of UAS advances, and the roadmap to their full utilization in military and integration in civilian domains. Focused interests of diverse groups involved in UAS research and development will be discussed. Special emphasis will be given to current and future research opportunities, and to 'what comes next' in terms of the essential technologies that need be utilized to advance further UAS.
Conference topics include but are not limited to:
Air Vehicle Operations
Biologically Inspired UAS
Energy Efficient UAS
Levels of Safety
Micro- and Mini- UAS
Reliability of UAS
Papers must be submitted electronically using the on-line submission system, which will be available from the conference web site.
