The workshop will be a major forum focusing on the discussion of latest developments and on the exchange of recent experiences in the field of safety of Unmanned Maritime Systems. The workshop is the will bring together end users and various stakeholders from industry, research institutes and governmental organizations.
The workshop is supported by European Defence Agency and SARUMS working group whose aim is to provide European navies with a best practice framework for the handling, operations, design and regulations of Unmanned Maritime Systems. The contributions to the workshop will be taken into account in the work of the SARUMS group.
The workshop covers three main topics relevant to both military and civilian Unmanned Maritime Systems:
1.UMS legislation, assurance, liability
–Applicable rules, regulations (COLREG), experience and best practice
2.UMS safety related to operation
–Systems, procedures, experience to achieve safe operations
3.UMS safety related to design
–Systems, products, technology, research needed to accomplish safe unmanned systems
In 2014, the inaugural Offshore Technology Conference Asia (OTC Asia) will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in Malaysia, branching out from the original event held annually in Houston. This event will be held from 25 28 March, before the Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend. OTC Asia will focus on concerns pertinent to the region and be an avenue to share lessons learnt, best practices and emerging technologies in offshore oil and gas activities towards meeting the challenges for Asias growth. Cross-border issues, enhanced oil recovery on the back of depleting resources, aging facilities, adapting international standards to local requirements, and high CO2 gas reservoirs are among the challenges, whilst pursuing the right technologies and the right expertise to realise greater value for the industry. Asia, being the centre for offshore rig and facilities construction, will be the perfect venue to present success and innovation in this field.
We are pleased to inform you that the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) and Marine Technology Society (MTS) will host the OCEANS'14 MTS/IEEE Conference on April 7-10, 2014, in Taipei, Taiwan. The OCEANS Conferences in Asia are a unique series of international conferences with the goals of bridging the distance between scientists and engineers and advancing the interdisciplinary fields of ocean science and technology. The OCEANS'14 Conference in Taipei will be a memorable event, allowing for colleagues and friends worldwide to establish friendships, thereby promoting academic exchange at an international and interdisciplinary level. The conference theme of OCEANS REGENERATION speaks to the need to promote scientific methods and research to address environmental concerns about the preservation and betterment of our living Oceans. Our vision for this conference is to develop new ocean research paradigms based on work by experts in all areas and from previous OCEANS conferences. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you and your colleagues to attend this conference.
As part of the SPIE Sensing Technologies, and Defense and Security Symposium (ST&DSS), the Ocean Sensing and Monitoring conference VI will be held from May 4-9, 2014 in the beautiful Baltimore, Maryland. This conference provides a unique opportunity and forum to present applied R&D efforts associated with oceanic and littoral environments, and establish broader collaborations.

THE GLOBAL EVENT FOR UNDERSEA DEFENCE AND SECURITY
UDT is the underwater defence and security community's dedicated exhibition and conference. It brings together professionals from the military, industry and academia to focus on the cutting edge technologies and developments within one of the harshest environments known to man.
Now it its 26th year, UDT 2014 will take place in the maritime city of Liverpool, United Kingdom. UDT is a multi-faceted event that reflects this community's desire for continuous learni
All themes will contribute to the overall theme for this year:
"Consolidating progress: flexible technologies and innovative, cost-effective solutions in the underwater environment"
Sub topics include:
Delivering security in the underwater environment
National infrastructure protection
The 2014 WCUSEng promotes the advancement of the applied science, technology and operation of unmanned systems through the dissemination of cutting-edge research and provides a forum for researchers, scientists, business professionals and industry representatives World-wide to present the latest innovations and future research directions in Unmanned Systems Engineering.
Oceans: Where Challenge Becomes Opportunity
Delta St. John's Hotel
St. John's Convention Centre
Mile One Centre
Jointly sponsored by the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and the Oceanic Engineering Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE/OES), OCEANS '14 is a major international forum for scientists, engineers, and responsible ocean users to present the latest research results, ideas, developments, and applications in Oceanic Engineering and Marine Technology.
OCEANS 2014 features tutorials on special interest topics, a comprehensive technical program of lectures and presentations, a student program, and a large exhibit hall with products from over one hundred companies.
Held since 2006, SAUC-E challenges the next generation of engineers to design and build an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) capable of performing realistic missions.
The event is designed to encourage students to think about underwater technology and related applications while fostering innovation and technology. It also aims at getting young engineers and scientists to consider careers in the field.
Participating teams must consist of 75% student members and have a faculty advisor.
euRathlon is a new outdoor robotics competition that invites teams to test the intelligence and autonomy of their robots in challenging scenarios. The scenarios for the euRathlon 2014 sea competition are focused on the aspects that will characterize the euRathlon 2015 Grand Challenge. The euRathlon 2015 Grand Challenge will require intervention tasks inspired by a Fukushima-like disaster, because of that possible related scenarios have been identified and proposed for the 2014 sea competition.
In this way, the teams participating can use the 2014 sea competition as a valid benchmark to design and test solutions for the final euRathlon Grand Challenge. Five different tasks will be proposed to the teams, specifically “Long range autonomous underwater navigation”, “Environmental survey of the accident area”, “Leak localisation and structure inspection”, “Interaction with underwater structures” and “Combined scenario”.
In the scenarios it is suggested to compete by using an AUV. A USV can be used to support and to help AUV operations. However, there are scenarios in which a team can compete by using only a USV.
Make plans to join your colleagues at AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems Program Review 2014, being held 4-6 November at The Ritz Carlton, Tysons Corner in McLean, Va.
