Deadline Extended to 5/18: Call for Papers, 12th European Conference

Conference Chair Professor Schalk has extended the deadline for abstract submissions to May 18, 2012. Full papers, based on accepted abstracts will be accepted up to 2 July. The 12th European Regional Conference of the ISTVS will be hosted in Pretoria, South Africa from 24 to 28 September 2012.

Conference themes include the following:

  • Soil and terrain modeling and characterisation
  • Planetary rovers and mobile robotics
  • Tires, wheels and tracks modeling
  • Agricultural and earth moving equipment
  • Operation on snow and ice
  • Vehicle dynamics, mobility and safety
  • Terramechanics
  • Test and measurement

All papers will be peer-reviewed, and those accepted will be included in the conference proceedings. We strongly encourage all authors to submit full papers, but will also accept oral presentations and posters, for which only an abstract needs to be submitted. To facilitate the communication and the exchange of ideas at the conference, all authors are also strongly encouraged to prepare a poster for each paper they present.
