Invitation to attend the inaugural events of IEEE SPS Autonomous Systems Initiative (ASI) ASI@ICIP2018 7-8/10/2018, Athens, Greece

Dear  colleagues and students,

very recently, the IEEE Signal Processing Society approved the creation of the  IEEE SPS Autonomous Systems Initiative (ASI, http://asi.politecnica.unige.it/). More information on its goals and policies can be found in the attached documents.

ASI will be inaugurated during ICIP2018, 7-10/10/2018, Athens, Greece with a series of events on 7-8th October 2018, collectively called ASI@ICIP2018.

You are invited to attend them. Furthermore, you are welcomed to  register as ASI volunteer, by filling your entry in

From a  scientific point of view, ASI can cover the following areas (non exhaustive list):

  • Perception
  • Sensor information processing
  • Mission planning and control
  • Machine learning for perception and control
  • Robust/secure mobile communications
  • Embedded systems
  • Security
  • Societal issues, e.g., data protection, privacy.

From an industrial/sectorial point of view, it can cover autonomous systems operating in any environment, whether this is on land, underwater, in the air, underground, or in space. More specifically:

  • Autonomous cars
  • Autonomous robotic systems
  • Marine, underwater vessels
  • Drones and unmanned aircraft.

Proposals on ASI related activities  (e.g., courses, special sessions/issues, workshops, competitions) are welcomed from any IEEE member (and beyond)

and can be presented during the inaugural session 12:10-13:10, 8th October 2018  (send 1-2 slides to Prof. I. Pitas pitas@aiia.csd.auth.gr by 7th October 2018).
