Call for papers Vision in Action: Efficient strategies for cognitive
agents in complex environments (ECCV2008 Workshop)

The field of computer vision has developed significantly over the past
decades and its importance in fields of development of cognitive systems
in the areas of robotics and artificial intelligence is growing. The
first goal of this workshop is to initiate a close dialog between the
communities and allow for long term planning of synergistic effects from
the integrated research. The second goal is to model the entire
perception-action loop, since in robotics, vision cannot be considered
an isolated component and vision research should include consideration
of the control of the system. 

We invite papers in relation to one or more of the following topics: 

      * Attention control - the complexity of the scene requires
        additional image processing for a light process decision about
        areas of interest in the sensor data.
      * Collaborative sensing with simple agents - small, lightweight
        systems do not allow an implementation of large and complex
        sensing systems. Collaboration between simple systems is a
        promising way to tackle this problem.
      * Multi-modal fusion of sensory perception - we aim to invite
        researchers working on fusion of different sensor data
        representations including physical sensing, resolution, and
      * Modeling and learning of perception and action for development
        of innate behaviors - an example of the emerging research in
        this area are the established vision-based control approaches in
        the robotics. 
      * Memory and representations - coupling between visual perception,
        tasks, knowledge and the visual system requires memory and
        suitable data representations.
Important Dates:

      * Full paper submission: July 20, 2008 Submission only via email
        to: argyros at ics.forth.gr 
      * Format: Maximum 6 pages, ECCV format
      * Notification of acceptance: August 20, 2008 Papers will be part
        of centralized workshop proceedings
      * Final manuscript due: August 30, 2008 Strict deadline! 

I like the whooshing sound of the deadlines passing by...
