First Call for Papers
JOURNAL OF ROBOTICS: "Advances in Vision for Autonomous Robots"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

BACKGROUND:

Visible light cameras have a number of advantages for robotics research. 
They are low cost, high resolution, passive, and suitable both for 
indoor and outdoor environments. However, sophisticated algorithms are 
necessary to leverage the information contained in the high-dimensional 
and noisy image data. Computer vision research has addressed this 
problem for a long time, while its findings are still boosting the 
development of new, useful methods for robot perception.

The main focus of this special issue will be on advances in computer 
vision and its integration to robotics, with special emphasis on 
high-level perception tasks in human environments. Potential topics 
include, but are not limited to:

     * Visual navigation
     * Visual tracking
     * Visual place recognition
     * Visual SLAM
     * Vision-based object recognition
     * Robot vision applications
     * Fusion of vision with other sensor modalities
     * Multi-view vision for robots

SUBMISSION:

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's 
Author Guidelines, which are located at
