Dear Colleagues,

Of interest to many may be the upcoming IEEE-sponsored Antarctic and Southern Ocean Forum for Engineering, Science and Technology (ASOF-fest).

This is a 4-day symposium designed to bring scientists and engineers together to solve polar engineering problems.

The symposium will be held from 14 to 17 August in the CSIRO Auditorium, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

I've pasted in the list of themes and sub-themes below.

Location: CSIRO Auditorium, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
Dates: 14 to 17 August, 2018
Website: https://asof2018.ieee.org/
Abstracts: Due 31 May
Flyer: https://asof2018.ieee.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2018/04/Flyer_ASOF-fest-2018_2.pdf

Kind regards,

Dr Alex Fraser

The Forum will consist of a single stream with encouragement for discussion and questions. Sessions will be organized around the following five themes:

1.  Autonomous observing

a.      ROV/AUV/ASV Technology

b.      Communications gateways eg surface vehicles

c.       Control system development


d.      Deep autonomy / under-ice navigation – gliders, Argo floats

e.      Atmospheric sampling from land and sea (autonomous balloons, Lidar, Cloud radar and atmospheric profilers), weather stations, moorings

f.        Intelligence sensing / sampling

g.      Autonomy in a polar environment.

2.     Observation Technologies

a.      Atmospheric Lidar, Cloud radar and Atmospheric Profilers

b.      Miniaturisation, automation and ruggedization of instrumentation, (multiple    deployment of low cost samplers)

c.       Long-term instrument stability, self-calibration

d.      Problems of high latitude and long range operation

e.      Ice profiling instruments, englacial & sub-glacial instrument deployment, new drilling  technology/methods

f.        Acoustics at high latitudes – navigation, data and tomography

g.      Advanced drifter technology,

h.      Airborne deployment of oceanographic instruments

i.        Mission risk assessment

j.      Continuous plankton recording

k.     In situ fluorometers & particle analysers

3.       Sustained measurements

a.      Oceanographic mooring technologies

b.      Remote sensing and satellite calibration

c.       Animal borne sensors – developments, data streams and methods

4.       Biology and biomass

a.      Fisheries and mid-water acoustics

b.      Genomics sampling and sensing

5.    Data Science

a.      Data Storage – long-term monitoring, swappable data

b.      Data Transfer – real time monitoring; event triggering

c.       Data processing for new under-ice data sets

d.      Instrument communications and tracking
