­­Welcome to the 2014 International Conference on Intelligent Unmanned Systems

The 2014 International Conference on Intelligent Unmanned Systems (ICIUS 2014) will be held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from September 29th to October 1st, 2014. The conference offers a unique and interesting platform for scientists, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to present and share their most recent research and innovative ideas in the areas of unmanned systems, robotics, automation, and intelligent systems.

ICIUS is a well-established annual conference, which addresses the rapidly changing state of the art in unmanned systems (including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs), Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs), and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) etc.), robotics, automation, intelligent systems, and provides insights into the paths ahead for fundamental research, device development and technology deployment around the world. The conference represents the highest pedigree in the fields of intelligent unmanned systems, with high quality content and international networking. This is the premier global event combining academic excellence with industrial representations within the conference, augmented by exhibitions and workshops planned to be held around the conference program. At this conference, researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners from all over the world congregate to exchange knowledge and expertise in the development and innovative applications of all types of unmanned systems, payload and accompanying systems.

All accepted papers would be further reviewed for post conference journal publications in International Journal of Intelligent Unmanned Systems (IJIUS), Journal of Unmanned System Technology (JUST), Journal of Instrumentation, Automation and Systems (JIAS), and International Journal of Mechatronics and Robotics (IJMR).A special issue with selected papers will also be published at journal Unmanned Systems (US), Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems (JINT), and International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics (IJICC). Any contributed or invited paper can be nominated for the ICIUS 2014 Best Conference Paper Award and the ICIUS 2014 Best Student Paper Award. The final evaluation by the awards committee will take into account the presentations at ICIUS 2014.

We sincerely welcome our colleagues worldwide to join us for this conference. We look forward to seeing you in Montreal for this exciting event!
