This is a call for poster in the interactive session of the workshop.  It is an opportunity to not only participate in the workshop as an attendees, but also to present a poster during the interactive session to discuss ideas with other workshop participants.  Please indicate your intention to Dr Emel Demircan (emeld at stanford.edu) and bring along your poster to the workshop.  No paper or extended abstract is required to accompany the poster.  

The details on the workshop is given below:

CALL FOR POSTER PRESENTATION AND FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE

FULL DAY WORKSHOP on Computational Techniques in Natural Motion Analysis and Reconstruction

In conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2013),

Karlsruhe, May 6 - 10, 2013
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Workshop Website: http://stanford.edu/~emeld/ICRA13/
Workshop Date: Monday, May 6th, 8.15 - 17.00

The main motivation and objectives of the workshop:

1. The strategies of human motion reconstruction and its use in: the analysis of optimized human motion generation, such as in sports and other tasks requiring precise motion and manipulation of human body dynamics;
2. The strategies of human motion reconstruction on engineered anthropomorphic systems, such as the humanoid, mobile manipulators, and simulated systems; and
3. Human motion generation and task learning, which includes but not limited to: the strategies of generalization of learnt tasks to the learning of new tasks, resolution of human motor redundancy, human strategies in the handling of constraints.

The full-day workshop will include one session with the interactive poster presentations. Paper submission for poster presentation is sought for for recent advances in this exciting area of research. The scope of the papers sought for the workshop is given below (under List of Topics). For more info about the interactive presentations, please visit: http://www.icra2013.org/?page_id=110
