Breaking the Surface 2013 (http://bts.fer.hr/)

Murter, Croatia, 30th September - 6th October 2013


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 program is organized along four program tracks of the event:

  • Marine robotics (MAROB);
  • marine biology and marine nature protection (MARBIO);
  • maritime security, naval and coast guard operations (MARSEC);
  • maritime, nautical and ship archaeology (MARCH). 

The programme consists of 16 plenary talks, a number of tutorials, and 3 days of fieldwork for all participants. The fieldwork provides an opportunity for all participants to receive hands-on training in marine robotics operations.
