Aims and Scope
This workshop aims to bring together computer vision and robotics
researchers interested in various aspects of visual perception and its
application to the robotic setting. The emphasis will be on contributions
with robotic-specific applications and motivations, strategies where
perception is integral part of robots’ decision making, proposals of novel
representations of objects and scenes in a robotic setting and their

This goal opens a wide range of questions regarding the robotic sensing: What
are the exact sensing capabilities a robot need to succeed at different
tasks? How accurate and at which levels should the robot environment be
modeled? What do we have now and what is it left to reach this goal? Which
lines of research from the Computer Vision field are of interest and which
aspects are not well suited to this particular problem? Robotics, unlike
other potential applications of Computer Vision, aims to sense but also
interact with its surroundings and performs tasks that may modify it. This
differentiation should be considered in order to develop useful algorithms
and lines of research.

The additional goal of the workshop is to discuss specific experimentation,
platforms and evaluation strategies (ROS, OpenCV, open databases...) for the
above mentioned mid and high-level perception tasks. This would enable the
comparison of existing strategies and novel ones, facilitate their sharing,
re-usability and interoperability, and further support open source
developments in the field.

The organizers encourage the submission of high quality papers, presenting
novel and unpublished research related but not limited to these topics:

* Perceptual Capabilities for Grasping
* Perceptual Capabilities for Human-Robot Interaction
* Perceptual Capabilities for Safe Robot Navigation
* Scene and Object Recognition
* Scene Understanding
* Semantic Mapping
* Visual Place Categorization
* Visual SLAM
* Standard platforms for robotic perception
* Experimentation and evaluation strategies

A selection of the best papers in the workshop will be considered for the
edition of a special issue in a robotics / computer vision international

Submission and review process will follow the standard ICCV main conference
submissions. The page limit is 8 pages with no extra page charge. Papers
should be prepared in the ICCV format detailed both in the workshop and main
conference websites. Papers violating the paper length and formatting
requirements may be rejected without review.

Papers should be submitted through the following site:
