IEEE Workshop on Robot Vision (WoRV)
January 16-17, 2013, Sheraton Sand Key, Clearwater, Florida, USA
Submission Link: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=worv2013

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 discussions. 

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 book named "New Development in Robot Vision" with Springer 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 website.

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.
