Paparazzi Developers,
This is to announce a Call for Papers for the 2009 ASME/IEEE International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications (MESA09), part of ASME IDETC09. The conference is to be held August 30 – September 2, 2009 at the San Diego Convention Center. This Call for Papers is specific to the Session chaired by myself, Antoine Drouin, and Anton Kochevar. This topic of this session is ” Open Source UAV Autopilots: Status and Progression”, part of a symposium of MESA09 called “Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Technologies and Applications (SUAVTA)”. This Technical Session is meant to be a session that will focus on Paparazzi, the topics can include specific features developed for Paparazzi or applications using Paparazzi along with other innovative aspects or uses of Paparazzi. We hope to make this one of the largest and best conferences dealing with Paparazzi. Please help us to promote Paparazzi and bring this amazing project to even more people.
