Workshop on Omnidirectional Robot Vision

CALL FOR PAPER

We invite scientists from omnidirectional vision and robotics  
communities to attend the „Workshop on Omnidirectional Robot Vision“  
and to discuss sensors, algorithms and applications of omnidirectional  
vision for robotics.

Omnidirectional vision research was always greatly stimulated by  
mobile robotics and it was finding its major applications there.  
Recently, a broader community has started working with omnidirectional  
sensors and commercial applications appeared also in surveillance and  
automotive industry. We wish to encourage active collaboration of  
computer vision and robotic researchers to develop more robust,  
practical and applicable systems in robotics and elsewhere.

Topics of interest

- Omnidirectional sensors for robotics
- Omnidirectional vision for mobile robots, flying robots and  
manipulators
- Omnidirectional vision for robot navigation and safety
- Omnidirectional vision for multi-robot teams (including RoboCup  
legues)
- Omnidirectional visual odometry
- Omnidirectional SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping)
- Omnidirectional vision in industrial robotics and automotive industry

IMPORTANT DATES:

Deadline for submission of paper:		September 1st, 2008
Notification of acceptance: 			October 5, 2008
Submission of final camera ready papers: 	October 20, 2008
