[robotics-worldwide] Deadline Extension - RSS 2013 Workshop on Multi View Geometry in Robotics

Dear all,

We decided to extend the submission deadline of the MVIGRO workshop to May 15. The reason is that we have not received enough high-quality submissions thus far, however we do believe that many of you use multiple view geometry in different areas of robotics (some of which are detailed in the CFP below). Please note that the original call is consistent with contributions in the area of manipulation and robotic surgery in which multiple cameras are used, as well as the use of novel viewing geometries in mobile and aerial robotics.

Hopefully, this extension will provide enough time after ICRA to submit high-quality contributions so that we can have a strong and relevant program.

Call for Papers - RSS 2013 Workshop on Multi VIew Geometry in RObotics (MVIGRO)
June 28, 2013, Berlin
Website: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/events/mvigro/

MOTIVATION AND OBJECTIVES
---------------------------------------------

Multiple view geometry plays a key role in many areas in robotics with novel approaches being actively developed in recent years. Ongoing research includes different fields such as visual servoing and control, surveillance, indoor and outdoor vision-aided navigation, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), cooperative localization, detection of moving objects and operation in dynamic environments. Next-generation robotics are required to have a higher level of autonomy and robustness, operating over long periods of time and in a wide spectrum of scenarios whose nature changes from one environment to another (e.g. ground, underwater, aerial, space). Harnessing the full potential of multiple view geometry can address these challenges, advancing the state of the art.  

This workshop aims to bring forward the latest breakthroughs and cutting edge research on multiple view geometry in robotics, as well as discuss challenges and future research directions. 

LIST OF TOPICS
-----------------------

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 
- Visual servoing 
- Formation control 
- Vision-aided navigation
- Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) 
- Structure from motion (SfM) in robotics
- Multi-agent systems (cooperative localization, mapping, navigation etc.) 
- Tracking 
- Surveillance applications 
- Robotic surgery
- Operation in dynamic environments
