MARS BECOMES A SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE
The Military Advanced Robotic Systems (MARS) Conference becomes a scientific conference. For the scientific part of MARS, we specially encourage submission of papers dedicated to the application, modelling and simulation, advanced techniques, innovative approaches or assumptions from the area of Advanced Autonomous and Robotic Systems.
We kindly ask you to submit your scientific articles via EasyChair. Please use this template for submission of scientific articles. Paper Submission Deadline is on 30 June 2016.
Commercial presentations are also welcome. Submission of abstracts is on an individual basis. Please see the Call for Papers or MARS website.
Industry and business providing security-related technologies and services will be able to demonstrate latest solutions, obtain valuable information, and, first and foremost, meet decision makers responsible for acquisitions and public contracts.
End users will have an opportunity to get acquainted with new products and trends in their respective fields and to consult with leading experts.
Experts will have a unique chance to acquire new information, consult fresh pieces of knowledge with their peers, or deliver a speech or lecture during the programme.
We are looking forward to our fruitful cooperation and to welcoming you to Prague, the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
