3DRP-PCL 2014 - 1st International Workshop on Robot Perception with  
Point Cloud Library @ IAS 2014

CFP - Apologies for multiple copies
IAS 2014 - “1st Workshop on Robot Perception with Point Cloud Library"
In conjunction with IAS 2014, Padova and Venice, Italy


Submission deadline: April 26, 2014
Acceptance notification: May 26, 2014
Camera-ready due: June 10, 2014
Workshop date: July 15, 2014


The Point Cloud Library (or PCL) is a large scale, open project for  
2D/3D image and point cloud processing. Since 2011, PCL grew with an  
exceptional trend and became a reference library for 3D processing,  
providing numerous state-of-the art algorithms for filtering, feature  
estimation, surface reconstruction, registration, model fitting and  
segmentation and drivers for the most diffused 3D sensors. Moreover,  
complete pipelines needed for solving a number of complex robot  
perception problems are also present, such as object recognition and  
tracking, people detection and large-scale 3D reconstruction. PCL is  
the backbone of most of perception algorithms for robots equipped with  
RGB-D sensors, also thanks to its integration with the Robot Operating  
System. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers  
presenting novel 3D perception algorithms and 3D systems for mobile  
robots building on the Point Cloud Library, in order to create a forum  
to discuss advances in 3D Robot Perception and the role that the Point  
Cloud Library had, has and will have in robotics research and  
industrial applications.

Submissions are encouraged on the following topics:

- 3D data filtering
- 3D keypoint and feature estimation
- segmentation and surface modeling
- point cloud registration
- 3D reconstruction
- 3D object recognition and pose estimation
- people detection and tracking in point clouds
- 3D sensors and drivers
- point cloud compression, streaming and visualization
- 3D robot perception
- 3D data processing in industry
- other applications of the Point Cloud Library

Selected contributions will be presented at the workshop as talks  
and/or posters. Accepted papers will be inserted in a CD-ROM  
containing all papers of all conference workshops (tentative title  
"IAS-13 Workshop Proceedings") with page numbers for each paper and  
unique ISBN code.


Papers must be written in English and submitted through the EasyChair portal:
Authors that do not have an EasyChair account should create one in  
order to access the submission procedure. Papers must be prepared  
according the Springer authors guidelines:  
and must be generated using the Springer templates:
- Latex template – please use llncs.dem as a paper example;
- Microsoft Word template.
Latex is the preferred format. Please follow the instruction included  
in the zip archives provided. Submission of multimedia attachments  
showing experimental results is encouraged; accepted file formats are:  
avi, mpg, wmv.


The authors of the accepted papers could be invited to submit an  
extended version of their papers to a Journal Special Issue (with open  
call and peer review).
