The aim of this workshop is to bring together engineers, academicians, scientists, professionals, and students, to discuss and share the ideas about the recent developments in the area of autonomous aerospace vehicle guidance, navigation and control. A huge number of applications for autonomous vehicles are arising both in the civil and military fields which present many challenges in the area of control. The workshop will consider all kinds of aerospace vehicles, suchs UAVs, aircraft, helicopters, missiles, or spacecraft, and applications related to them. In addition to advance guidance, navigation and flight control designs, other related topics within the domain of the workshop include advanced air traffic management and trajectory optimization algorithms, multi-agent systems, spacecraft rendezvous and formation flying, advanced attitude control of spacecraft, flexible structures, decision making and autonomy, flight dynamics identification, deployment, nonlinear dynamics of flight control systems, avionics and onboard control algorithms implementation. Emphasis will also be placed on forthcoming trends. Perspectives and future research projects are welcome, as well as lessons learned in current projects and technologies. This workshop also encourages students to present results of Aerospace control projects.
