Call For Tutorial

Proposal Guideline & Requirement

ICCAR 2021 proposals for tutorials within the technical scope of the conference. The short course or tutorial should aim to give a comprehensive overview of a specific topics related to Control, Automation and Robotics. A good tutorial should be educational rather than just a cursory survey of techniques. The topic should be of sufficient relevance and importance to attract significant number of participation.

Tutorial proposals should include the following information:

• Proposed title;
• Proposers' names, titles, affiliations, emails, and brief bio sketches;
• Preference for 1 hour or 2 hours event;
• Course description with list of topics to be covered, along with a brief outline and important details;
• Expected target audience, in terms of both composition and estimated number of attendees.

Please send your proposal to in PDF format. Tutorial is open for proposal before February 20th, 2021.


"Fundamental Design and Automation Technologies in Offshore Robotics"
Time Slot: 2hours

Fundamental Design and Automation Technologies in Offshore Robotics introduces technological design, modelling, stability analysis, control synthesis, filtering problem and real time operation of robotics vehicles in offshore environments.
This lecture covers: Introduction to fundamental design and automation technologies in offshore robotics; Underwater vehicles for inspection; Autonomous control of underwater offshore vehicles; Development of hybrid control architecture for autonomous underwater vehicles; Fault diagnostics for autonomous underwater vehicle; learning based control for underactuated surface vehicles.
The main features of this lecture:
• Providing a series of latest results in, including, motion control, robotics, and multi-vehicle systems towards offshore environment
• Presenting recent advances of theory, technological aspects, and applications of robotics in offshore environment
• Offering up-to-date results, which plays an indicative role for further study of the attendees.
