MEETING CALL FOR PAPERS

========================================================
BMVA one day international technical meeting on "Vision for Language and 
Manipulation"

URL: http://www.bmva.org/meetings

(to be held at BCS, 5 Southampton Street, London, WC2E 7HA, U.K.)
========================================================

IMPORTANT DATES:
Submission deadline: 3rd April 2014
Meeting: Friday 11th July, 2014
  
MEETING DESCRIPTION:
Human dexterous manipulation remains unmatched in robotics. The fusion of  visual, tactile and proprioceptive perception plays a central role in planning and control of manipulation. Many of the same percepts that are useful for manipulation have also been shown to be useful in the robotic grounding of natural language [1,2,3,4].
The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers and practitioners, from both industry and academia, interested in any aspects of vision for manipulation or natural language grounding.

TOPICS:
We are seeking papers that address the challenges of vision for manipulation and language including, but not limited to :
Percepts of objects, affordances, forces, actions, anticipated effects
Visual-tactile-proprioceptive fusion
Active vision for planning and control of palpation, grasping, and manipulation
SLAM for deformable, breakable objects, fluids and occlusions in a dynamic world
Hand eye coordination, self tracking, visual control of manipulation
Recognition of other agents
Vision for imitation, interaction, cooperation and communication with other agents
Percepts leading to the emergence of syntax in language and motion planning
Learning methods for visual grasping and control methods for visual grasping.

SUBMISSIONS:
All those interested in presenting material at this meeting are invited to submit a paragraph describing their topic ton.c.hockings at bath.ac.uk  for consideration by 3rd April 2014.

ORGANIZERS:
Nick Hockings (University of Bath)
Walterio Mayol-Cuevas (University of Bristol)
