    CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - European Robotics Forum 2011 WORKSHOP
                        RGB-D Workshop on 3D Perception in Robotics
                               April 8, 2011, Västerås, Sweden

Important Dates:
* Submissions Due:              20 March 2011
* Notification of Acceptance:   27 March 2011
* Workshop at euRobotics:       8  April 2011

On behalf of organizers we would cordially like to invite you for
paper abstract submission and participation to the RGB-D Workshop on
3D Perception in Robotics at the upcoming  European Robotics Forum
2011 on April 8th.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from
robotics and computer vision to present and discuss current approaches
on 3D perception using RGB-D sensors in robotics. The key outcomes of
the workshop will be to establish an overview over a) the currently
available sensor hardware, b) the state-of-the-art in 3D perception,
c) the possible applications in industry,  and d) stimulate a
discussion of the key challenges and opportunities of RGB-D-based
perception in robotics.

Special emphasize will be given to live demos and fostering of the
discussion between the participants.

We solicit one-page A4 paper abstract submissions, optionally
accompanied by a video both of which will be reviewed by the program
committee. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- sensor technology, calibration and data pre-processing,
- RGB-D interest points and feature descriptors,
- SLAM and semantic mapping,
- object recognition and localization,
- people tracking and activity recognition,
- navigation,
- industrial applications.
The deadline for submissions is Sunday, 20.03.2011. Please submit your
abstract via email to rgbd11 at ias.cs.tum.edu; for videos, include a
link to the file.

Best Regards,

Michael Beetz, Wolfram Burgard, Daniel Cremers, Jürgen Sturm, Dejan Pangercic
