-------- Call for Poster Presentations --------
First IEEE Workshop on  Computer Vision for Humanoid Robots in Real
in conjunction with ICCV 2009
September 27, 2009, Kyoto, Japan

The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from the fields
of computer vision and robotics that are working on humanoid robots
with vision as one of the primary modalities. Topics of interest
include and are not limited to:
* Human Robot Interaction
* Grasping and Manipulation
* Learning by Demonstration
* Task Learning for Robots
* Activity Recognition and Discovery for Robot
* Humanoid Navigation in Real Environments
* Vision Devices and Systems for Robot Applications
* Application of Humanoid Robots (Indoor/Outdoor, Entertainment)
Researchers from the robotics community are particularly encouraged to
attend. This is the first attempt at a workshop that crosses from
Humanoids Research to Computer Vision Research.

Workshop Format
The workshop will consist of about six invited talks as well as open
poster presentations by the attendees. Every attendee is invited to
bring a poster describing the work to facilitate open discussions
among the attendees. ***Those who plan to present a poster are
recommended to send the title and presenter's name, affiliation and
email address to Dr. Katsu Yamane (kyamane at disneyresearch.com) by
