Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this Call for Participation.

Dear colleague,

we would like to draw your attention to the final program of the IROS
2010 Workshop on Semantic Mapping and Autonomous Knowledge Acquisition
which is available at the workshop website:

The main focus of this workshop is on the autonomous acquisition of
semantic information in intelligent robots and systems, as well as the
use of semantic knowledge to guide further acquisition of information
from the environment. The workshop will provide a common forum where
people can exchange ideas and experiences on all aspects of this
problem, and identify the common questions and concerns. 

We are going to have a total of 11 presentations organized in four
sessions including four invited talks given by
* Wolfram Burgard 
* Danica Kragic, Jeannette Bohg, and Matthew Johnson-Roberson
* Radu Bogdan Rusu and
* Markus Vincze and Sven Olufs
as well as a 30 minute panel discussion (full program below). 
The proceedings are already available at the workshop website
(presentation material will follow).

Hope to see you at IROS 2010 in Taipei and at the workshop.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
best regards,
Dirk Holz
