European Workshop on Deformable Object Manipulation
March 20th, Lyon, France

In robotics research and application, autonomy has presented a long 
standing challenge on many fronts, mainly for motion control, human 
interaction, environment/object sensing and modelling, and manipulation.
New applications concerning surgery, food industry, daily life services, 
etc, require investigating the problem of deformable object 
manipulation. One issue is to be able to provide a sufficient accurate 
model of the object in order to estimate the internal and external 
deformation properties by using surface and volumetric models which can 
be used in perception for tracking, pose estimation, and deformation 
estimation. Another issue concerns control where vision, force, and even 
tactile perception must be involved.
The workshop will focus on Deformable Object Manipulation, making the 
state or the art in the field of manipulation, modeling, perception and 
sensing, and control. Applications and case studies are welcome in order 
to illustrate the different problems and provide new insight into the field.
