Call for Papers

IEEE Workshop on Robot Vision (WoRV)

January 16-17, 2013, Sheraton Sand Key, Clearwater, Florida, USA


We cordially invite you to submit papers to the IEEE Workshop on Robot
Vision (WoRV), which will be held in January 16-17, 2013 in Clearwater,
Florida, USA. The Workshop is organized in the framework of IEEE Winter
Vision Meetings (WVM, January 16-18, 2013), which are collection of
workshops, including the Workshop on Applications of Computer Vision
(WACV), Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Tracking and Surveillance
(PETS), Workshop on User - Centred Computer Vision (UCCV), and Workshop on
Robot Vision (WoRV). All of the four workshops are covered by one single
"passport-style" registration and open to all attendees.

The workshop provides a distinctive opportunity for researchers in the
robotics and automation community to closely and actively interact and
exchange ideas with a large number of computer vision researchers. The
workshop aims to share research findings and issues in both frontiers,
vibrant discussion with speakers from both disciplines, and address the
current state of the art and future directions with lively panel

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality papers representing
original results in all areas of robot vision. Six pages in standard IEEE
format are allowed for each paper, including figures. All submitted papers
will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. All accepted papers will
be published electronically on IEEE Xplore.  Extended versions of selected
papers will be published in a Springer book in the Cognitive Systems
Monographs Series COSMOS after the meeting.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Vision-Based Navigation

Robot Visual Tracking

Image-Guided Robot Interventions

Range Imaging -- RGB-D, Vision to Motion

Vision for Haptics

Vision for Aerial Robotics

Vision for Underwater Robotics

Software Tools for Robot Vision

Visual Servoing and Servo Control

Learning from Sensor/Visual Data

Real-time Sensing and Control

Active Sensing

Sensor Fusion and Sensor Networks

Multi-Robot Systems with Vision Sensors
 Detailed instructions for submissions are available on the conference

The workshop will take place at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort on Clearwater
Beach, Florida: One of America's top ranked hotels for hospitality, on one
of America's top rated beaches. The resort is a short drive from the top
rated Tampa International Airport and convenient for visits to world
renowned attractions like the Dali Museum, Busch Gardens, LEGO land and
Disney World.
