Breaking the Surface 2016: 8th International Interdisciplinary Field Training of Marine Robotics and Applications

Warning message

The start date of this training opportunity has already passed

General information

The next BtS will take place from 2nd till 9th October 2016.

BtS serves as a meeting place of experts and students of marine control engineering and signal processing and the marine robotics application areas in various types of ocean science. We are the world’s first successful, multi-year field training program that combines academic topics in marine robotics and robotics application areas and hands-on working experience in the sea, doing remote sensing and sampling for various ocean sciences. We are also unique in that we put strong emphasis on the participation of principal investigators and established research group leaders from across the globe, catering not only to the EU or USA research communities.

The programme is organized in the form of plenary talks, hands-on tutorials and demonstrations of marine technologies.

The programme is divided into program tracks such as: Marine robotics (MAROB); marine biology and marine nature protection (MARBIO); maritime security, naval and coast guard operations (MARSEC); maritime, nautical and ship archaeology (MARCH); marine geology (MARGEO); oceanology (OCEAN); oceanography (GRAPH) and others.
This year’s programme novelty is: Innovation Management trainings held by experts from the field. All participants will also get a chance to pitch their project ideas!

The course will include demonstrations of equipment: autonomous robotic units, vehicles, systems (ROVs, AUVs, USVs, UAVs); or remote sensing equipment, stereo-camera systems, sonars, radars, hydroacoustic modems etc. by research teams or industrial partners who exhibit and present their products.
