News and Updates

The 15th International Conference on Intelligent Unmanned Systems (ICIUS 2019), will be held in Beijing, China on August 27-29, 2019.


Judging from the interest ICIUS has drawn over the past years and its growth, ICIUS 2019 is expected to continue on this path and attract the highest number of participants from academia, industry, practitioners and engineers who wish to be affiliated with and contribute technically to this highly demanding, evolving and expanding field.

The major themes of ICIUS 2019 will be: design for trusted and assured autonomy, metrics for autonomy, and design for resilience. National and international organizations, agencies, industry, military and civilian authorities are working towards defining unmanned aerial vehicles roadmaps, technical requirements and standards. The next generation of UAVs is expected to be used for a wide spectrum of civilian and public domain applications. Challenges to be faced and overcome include robust and fault-tolerant flight control systems, payloads, communications, levels of autonomy, unmanned swarms, network-controlled swarms, etc.
