Our group member Alejandro Suárez will be involved as Program Chair in the International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (ICUAS) 2022 that will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, June 21-24, 2022. The conference, is organized this year by Matko Orsag (University of Zagreb, Croatia) and Youmin Zhang (Concordia University, Canada), with Yan Wan (University of Texas, USA) also as Program Chair. It covers a wide variety of topics related to aerial robotics, guidance, navigation and control of manned/unmanned systems, airspace management, energy efficient UAS, UAV networks, applications, and many other that you can find in the call for papers:
Alejandro Suarez is postdoctoral researcher at the GRVC Robotics Labs of the University of Seville. He has participated in several European and Spanish projects in aerial robotics since 2012, in particular with the development of lightweight and compliant robotic arms for aerial manipulation in the context of the H2020 AEROARMS project, or in the ERC Advanced Grant GRIFFIN project. He is currently involved in the AERIAL-CORE H2020 project, focused on the inspection and maintenance of high voltage power lines. He is also guest editor along with Matko Orsag and Jonathan Cacace in the Special Issue “Aerial Robotics for Inspection and Maintenance” in the Applied Sciences journal.
