Call for Papers for the
ICRA 2013 Workshop on Robust and Multimodal Inference in Factor Graphs

Website: http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/etit/proaut/ICRAWorkshopFactorGraphs/

Important Dates:
* March 11th 2013        Submission of full papers (6-8 pages)  
* March 25th 2013        Notification    
* March 27th 2012        Final papers for inclusion in proceedings     
* May 10th 2013          Workshop date

This full-day workshop at ICRA13 brings together researchers working in
different fields of robotics to discuss novel concepts and ideas for
robust as well as multimodal or non-Gaussian inference in factor
The workshop very explicitly aims at a larger audience and beyond the
usual pose graph SLAM applications of factor graphs.

The workshop features two tutorials by Frank Dellaert and Michael Kaess
that introduce the state of the art to participants without previous
experiences in the field. Three invited talks by Andrew Davison, Simon
Julier (tentative) and Edwin Olson and a number of contributed talks
discuss the newest developments, concepts and ideas in the areas covered
by the workshop topics. These topics comprise novel techniques for
outlier detection and rejection as well as modeling and inference with
multimodal or non-Gaussian measurement likelihoods and posteriors. A
special interest of the workshop are the challenges arising from
incremental applications of inference, such as information fusion in
dynamic systems.

The workshop is organized by Niko Sünderhauf, John Leonard and Edwin
