Special Issue Information
Nowadays, a relevant number of field operations in applications such as marine rescue, marine science, and offshore industries have been carried out through underwater robot manipulation. In such scenarios, most of the operation tasks are undertaken through remotely operated vehicle (ROV) or autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) manipulations. Working-class ROV manipulations are useful for deep and heavy operations, while AUV manipulations can be realized without mothership intervention and thus help to reduce the mission cost. Currently, the challenges of underwater robot manipulations include complicated underwater vehicle manipulator mechanics, dynamics and hydrodynamics modeling on underwater robot manipulators, autonomous robot manipulation planning, and sensing-based manipulation control. This Special Issue is dedicated to recent advances in Underwater Robots and Manipulators.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
