Call for papers and presentations to AASS 2018

Applied Autonomy System summit 2018. Banner.

The Applied Autonomy Systems Summit 2018 (AASS 2018) is the second annual symposium in bringing together different academic disciplines and industries to present and discuss the state of the art of applied autonomous systems.

Such systems are based on the developments in enabling technologies within robotics, computing, and telecommunications. Autonomous systems have become a strong disruptive force that have the potential to change how we work, how we live, where we live, how we travel etc.

The main drivers being the society’s need for efficiency and sustainability. The symposium attracts the academia and industry parties from diverse fields such as: human behavior, engineering, technology, business, political science, and philosophy, to present and discuss the wave of change the autonomous systems represent.

Submission process

All interested parties are invited to submit an extended abstract for review and present as presentation, roundtable, or poster at the conference. Extended abstract content is expected to align with the conference theme (maximum two pages, including references) and should adhere to the AASS 2018 paper format.
