The Technical University of Denmark and the IFAC Technical Committee in Marine Systems welcome you to the 14th IFAC Conference on Control Applications in Marine Systems, Robotics and Vehicles.
The conference aims at defining the research, development and innovation agenda within the areas of marine automation, control and robotics bridging the prominent views of academia and industry.
This edition of IFAC CAMS will focus on four technological areas that are instrumental for the achievement of the objectives pertaining to UN SDG14: Decarbonization; Autonomy; Cyber-resilience; Human factors in autonomous systems.
Objectives and Research Areas
IFAC CAMS 2022 sets the following objectives:
Identify short-term and long-term research and innovation challenges in the four key thematic areas;
Enable a constructive dialogue between researchers and industry practitioners to develop future innovation waves for the marine automation and robotic sectors;
Inspire the future generation of female and male engineers to join the quest for a sustainable development of the maritime sector.
The conference will pursue the above objectives by setting up a diverse and vibrant program including keynotes from academia and industry, technical sessions, and girl camp.
