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 - 18.15

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 


Important Dates:

Initial submission for poster presentation: 10 March 2013
Notification of acceptance: 17 March 2013
Final paper submission: 1 April 2013

Submission Form: 1 page extended abstract, including the motivation, the methods, and the main findings. Please send your contributions to emeld at stanford.edu
