ICoURS : International Conference on Underwater Remote Sensing
Deadline:28 September 2012
ENSTA Bretagne, Ifremer, SHOM and Telecom Bretagne
ICoURS is a set of conferences and workshops with a common interest: the sensing of the underwater environment. During the first day (free of charge), the 8th of October, three workshops will highlight topics of growing interest. In these workshops, invited talks will address:
- Geographical information systems and spatio temporal modelling;
- Water column acoustic imaging ;
- Swarm robots;
- Observation by non-acoustic methods.
The 9th and the 10th of October, a conference with call for papers will be focused on the detection and the classification of underwater targets. This is the third conference in a series that started with DRDC-A in 2001 (CAD/CAC 2001, Halifax, Canada) and Heriot-Watt University (DCUT, Edinburgh, Scotland) in 2007 about automatic target recognition in underwater environments. In addition to general detection and identification issues in sonar or video images, the conference will address specific themes as change detection and performance prediction. Selected papers will be gathered in the proceedings of the conference.
At last, the 10th and the 11th of October, ICoURS will end with a technology-oriented conference, aimed at the state-of-the-art of recent advances in the field of sonar applied to seafloor mapping and observation, for scientific and industrial applications. The programme will feature technical contributions by research laboratories and end-users, as well as presentations of recent developments and innovations by specialized manufacturers.
