IEEE/RSJ IROS 2006 Workshop (October 10, 2006, Beijing, China):

 From sensors to human spatial concepts
(geometric approaches and appearance-based approaches)


Organizers: Zoran Zivkovic, Ben Kröse, Raja Chatila, Henrik Christensen, 
Roland Siegwart

Webpage: http://www.science.uva.nl/~zivkovic/FS2HSC

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers that work on 
space representations appropriate for communicating with humans and on 
developing algorithms for relating the robot sensor data to the human 
spatial concepts. Furthermore, the workshop should renew the discussion 
about the appearance based and geometric approaches for space modeling 
in the light of the problem of relating the robot sensor data to the 
human spatial concepts.

In order to facilitate the discussion a dataset consisting of 
omnidirectional camera images, laser range readings and robot odometry 
is provided (http://staff.science.uva.nl/~zivkovic/FS2HSC/dataset.htm).

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to the following areas:
     * space representations appropriate for communicating with humans
     * papers applying and analyzing the results from cognitive science 
about the human spatial concepts
     * space representations suited to cover cognitive requirements of 
learning, knowledge acquisition and contextual control
     * methods for relating the robot sensor data to the human spatial 
concepts
     * comparison and/or combination of the appearance based and 
geometric approach for the task of relating the robot sensor data to the 
human spatial concepts

Selected papers will be considered for a Special Issue of the Robotics 
and Autonomous Systems Journal.

Important Dates:
Paper submission  EXTENDED TO  July 10, 2006
