Call for participation for the 
IROS’12 Workshop on Active Semantic Perception (ASP’12)

2nd Edition:
“Context and Semantic Prior in Active Perception”

when:   The workshop will take place on Monday, October 7th 
where:  in room Gemini 2


In realistic complex systems operating in large-scale environments,
the perception of semantic cues must be considered an active process.
Robots need the ability to seek semantic cues beyond sensory horizon,
exploit them to generate active behavior and do it robustly and
efficiently. To this end, this workshop focuses on active exploration
and search for semantic cues and their exploitation for generating a
more efficient and informed behavior.

The workshop is a second edition of the successful event organized
during IROS’11 in San Francisco (http://www.activeperception.org/2011)
which attracted considerable attention.  The theme of this year’s
edition builds upon the last year’s introduction to active perception
and focuses on the problem of acquisition and exploitation of contextual
information as well as general world knowledge. It will bring together
researchers in order to exchange ideas and discuss opportunities
in using context and semantic prior for building active robotic systems.
