IROS 2012 Workshop on
Lifelong Learning for Mobile Robotics Applications


Lifelong and online learning techniques are currently being established
as one of the major research goals in mobile robotics. In this workshop,
we will particularly focus on lifelong learning for applications in some
of the major mobile robotic research areas, including mapping,
navigation, manipulation, and planning.
The workshop will bring together excellent researchers from these
different areas, giving the opportunity to exchange ideas and present
recent results.

== Topics ==

We invite contributions in areas relevant in robotics.
Both theoretical and applied papers are encouraged.
The common theme is online and lifelong learning within robotics,
which includes papers spanning one or more of the following threads:

  -  Unsupervised/weakly supervised online learning techniques
  -  Bayesian state estimation
  -  Unsupervised/semi-supervised object discovery
  -  Evaluation of online/offline methods
  -  Multiple target tracking with adaptive target models
  -  Online and adaptive outlier detection
  -  Lifelong mapping and localization
  -  Adaptive/online transfer learning and domain adaptation
  -  Online learning by imitation (grasping, manipulation)
  -  Planning in continuously changing environments
  -  Change detection in video/data streams

== Important Dates ==

  Paper submission:         13th July 2012
  Acceptance notification:  31st August 2012
  Final paper submission:   14th September 2012
  Workshop date:            11th October 2012

== Submission Procedure ==

Researchers in the field of mobile robotics are invited to submit
contributions to the workshop via easyChair (full-length IEEE style,
but not more than 6 pages). There will be a review process and
the best papers are selected for poster presentation in the workshop
and for publication in the workshop proceedings. All accepted papers
 will be included in the workshop proceedings.
