Why Participate in the AUV Symposium 2024?

Networking: Meet with the experts of the marine robotics world from academia, industry and government sectors from around the globe. Strong student representation is expected. The single-track conference will bring the community together – we believe that bringing everyone together under a single roof is the right way to start discussions that will take the leading edge of technology forward.
Additional networking sessions and socials are planned to facilitate fun and engaging discussions to brainstorm ideas for marine robotics of the future.

Possibility to extend to IEEE JOE journal paper: Abstracts/papers accepted and presented at AUV Symposium will be allowed to extend these into full journal papers and submit to an upcoming AUV 2024 special issue of the reputed IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering.

Marine robotics awards: Be part of the moment as we honour marine robotics researchers with the Mid-career Rising Star award and the Lifetime achievement award 

Plenaries: from exciting speakers on a range of topics.

Student travel grant: Students can try to avail a travel grant to facilitate their travel to the conference.
