*Special Issue on Visual SLAM*

In recent years there have been spectacular advances in the solution of
the simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) problem for indoor and
outdoor environments, with systems capable of building large 2D models
of the environment using laser scanners. A current trend in SLAM is to
use standard, low-cost, compact and information-rich cameras to sense
the environment rather than more specialized sensors.

The */IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ROBOTICS/* invites you to submit papers on
this rapidly progressing subject, in response to a call for a Special
Issue on Visual SLAM. Techniques that contribute to close the gap
between 'traditional' SLAM techniques and computer vision techniques
will be of special interest.

The Guest Editors of the Special Issue are:

Prof. Jose' Neira <mailto:jneira at unizar.es>, Dept. de Informatica e
Ingenieria de Sistemas, Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain
Dr. Andrew Davison <mailto:ajd at doc.ic.ac.uk>, Dept. of Computing,
Imperial College, London, UK
Prof. John J. Leonard <mailto:jleonard at mit.edu>, Dept. of Mechanical
Engineering, MIT, Cambridge, MA, USA

Topics and details can be found in the Call for Papers that can be
downloaded from the link below. The important dates are:

August 1, 2007: Call for Papers
*November 30, 2007: Deadline for Paper Submission*
March 15, 2008: Completion of First Review
June 30, 2008: Completion of Final Review
October 2008: Publication

The call for papers can be found at

Regular and short papers for this Special Issue should be submitted in
the usual way to T-RO (see details in

Essentially, papers (in PDF) should be submitted by FTP to the site
address ftp://ftp.dis.uniroma1.it/pub/ieeetro/incoming.

The cover page of the paper should contain the paper title, authors'
names and full addresses, abstract, keywords (index terms), and paper
type (Regular Paper, Short Paper). The corresponding author should be
clearly indicated. A submission letter has to be sent by email to
<mailto:ieeetro at dis.uniroma1.it> including (as
plain text in the message) all information contained in the cover page
of the paper and the name of the uploaded file(s). *In the submission
email, please specify that the paper is intended for the Special Issue
on Visual SLAM.*

T-RO considers also multimedia material (typically, videos) accompanying
the submission of a paper. Instructions on the preparation of this
material can be found in

Multimedia will appear side-by-side to the accepted paper in the
electronic version of the Special Issue within IEEE Xplore.
