The 11th IFAC Conference on Control Applications in Marine Systems, Robotics, and Vehicles – CAMS 2018 is a flagship event of the IFAC Technical Committee on Marine Systems (TC7.2) and it now combines IFAC conferences CAMS and MCMC, and workshop NGCUV into one conference under CAMS acronym.

CAMS 2018 will be held from 10th until 12th September 2018 at the Conference Park 25/7 of the Milenij hotels in Opatija, Croatia. It is organized by the Laboratory for Underwater Systems and Technologies – LABUST, University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing – UNIZG FER with the help of the KoREMA (IFAC national member Organization) and the Center for Underwater Systems and Technologies.
