Abstract : A cross disciplinary session was organized by the Autonomous Undersea Systems Institute (AUSI) as part of the 10th International Symposium on Unmanned Untethered Submersible Technology. The Symposium was held at the New England Center at the University of New Hampshire during the period of September 5 - 11, 1997. This special session was organized to promote cross disciplinary interchange of ideas, technology, and research advances between AUV investigators and Bio-engineering researchers. Fifteen papers were presented during this session and was attended by fifty people approximately equally divided between AUV investigators and Bio-engineering researchers. This report is a compilation of the papers presented at the special session on Bio-Engineering. Feedback from attendees was very positive in terms of the two groups exchanging technology and ideas. A major suggestion from many attendees was to integrate the bio-engineering papers into the regular symposium, rather than have the session somewhat separate, to allow for more time to assimilate each others concepts and to provide more interpersonal discussion time.
