Oceanic Engineering Society - IEEE AUV 2012
Autonomous Underwater Vehicles 2012
24 - 27 September 2012
Welcome to AUV 2012
24 - 27 September 2012 - Southampton, UK
Every two years the Oceanic Engineering Society (IEEE-OES) sponsors a collaborative conference to bring together those working in the field of autonomous vehicles for ocean applications. In 2012 this diverse group from around the world will meet in Southampton, England - the first time an IEEE-OES AUV conference has been to the UK.
The theme for this conference is Persistent Presence. It is a sign of the increasing maturity of autonomous vehicles that users are now demanding longer mission durations as well as higher levels of autonomy and sensor capability to make most effective use of the technology. Persistent Presence brings challenges in many areas, including energy storage or extraction, propulsion systems, payloads, command, control and autonomy, reliability and provision for redundancy in mission and concept design. Papers on these and other topics related to Persistent Presence are welcome.
AUV 2012 also offers a number of social events for connecting up with old friends, building new links, exchanging ideas and collaborating on future efforts. Industry, Military and the Research Community are all represented along with some key components from state of the art manufacturers. An outline programme is given below.
