The field of computer vision has developed significantly over the
past few years and its importance for robotics is also growing. Due
to  many practical applications in a diverse variety of
sub-disciplines, such as surveillance, robot control, and virtual
environments, vision algorithms have a significant application
impact. The robotics and computer vision communities have, however,
remained largely separate. Dialog between the two communities would
then contribute greatly to the progress in both disciplines. In many
cases, methods available in the computer vision community are not in
general use in the robotics community. On the other hand, the system
level perspective is often neglected in the computer vision
community, because the research is focused on individual problems and
algorithms.

There is consequently a need to bring the communities of
robot and computer vision to a joint appreciation of the value of
systems, where there is a need to consider all aspects from
perception to action generation. This workshop is intended to
highlight the  problems and new approaches to the above issues by
bringing together computer vision and robotics researchers.
