The main targeted audience will be the robotics research community, from both academy and industry, mainly working in the fields of underwater systems and marine technologies. Industry members possibly interested in the exploitation of recent research contributions will be another important audience. Specifically, we are targeting audiences in the underwater robotics community who are interested in the aforementioned topics of interest.
Moreover, researchers in different areas, outside underwater robotics, like machine learning, artificial intelligence, mechatronics, grasping and manipulation, HRI, SLAM, communications, etc. will also find the topics of interest, together with any other robotic researcher not (yet) involved in marine applications.
In summary, not only experts in this matter but also those researchers not yet familiarized with underwater robotics will be attracted for new contexts where applied their knowledge in a field that represents an authentic challenge for all kind of current technologies and approaches.
