This special track at IAS-12 follows the first edition of the Omnidirectional Robot Vision Workshop at SIMPAR 2008 and its second successful edition at ICRA 2010.  

We invite scientists from omnidirectional vision and robotics communities to submit contributions to the Special Track on Omnidirectional Robot Vision at IAS-12 to discuss sensors, algorithms and applications of omnidirectional vision for robotics. 

By promoting this special track, we wish to encourage active collaboration of computer vision and robotic researchers with the community of Intelligent Autonomous Systems society. 

Outstanding papers among the track papers will be placed on the first priority of contributing them to “Robotics and Autonomous Systems” published by Elsevier or “Studies in Computational Intelligence Series” recognized by indices of SCI as one of Springer-Verlag series. The books will be published under a special theme based on the track program, after the conference.

Paper(s) shall be submitted due on January 31, 2012. Paper shall be in 4 pages length and IEEE styled format. For paper instructions and submission, please visit the website, http://www.ias-12.org/sub/submission_01.asp. Please make sure your track number at http://www.ias-12.org/sub/program_01.asp, before paper submission. Track papers will be submitted and reviewed in the same way as regular papers. The track organizer will make a final decision of the track papers after two rigorous peers’ review.
