MEETING 2nd CALL FOR PAPERS

========================================================
BMVA one day international technical meeting on "Vision for Language and
Manipulation"

URL: http://www.bmva.org/meetings

(to be held at BCS, 5 Southampton Street, London, WC2E 7HA, U.K.)
========================================================

IMPORTANT DATES:
Submission deadline: 3rd April 2014
Meeting: Friday 11th July, 2014

MEETING DESCRIPTION:
Human dexterous manipulation remains unmatched in robotics. The fusion 
of  visual, tactile and proprioceptive perception plays a central role 
in planning and control of manipulation. Many of the same percepts that 
are useful for manipulation have also been shown to be useful in the 
robotic grounding of natural language [1,2,3,4].
The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers and 
practitioners, from both industry and academia, interested in any 
aspects of vision for manipulation or natural language grounding.

TOPICS:
We are seeking papers that address the challenges of vision for 
manipulation and language including, but not limited to :
Percepts of objects, affordances, forces, actions, anticipated effects
Visual-tactile-proprioceptive fusion
Active vision for planning and control of palpation, grasping, and 
manipulation
SLAM for deformable, breakable objects, fluids and occlusions in a 
dynamic world
Hand eye coordination, self tracking, visual control of manipulation
Recognition of other agents
Vision for imitation, interaction, cooperation and communication with 
other agents
Percepts leading to the emergence of syntax in language and motion planning
Learning methods for visual grasping and control methods for visual 
grasping.

SUBMISSIONS:
All those interested in presenting material at this meeting are invited 
to submit a paragraph describing their topic n.c.hockings at bath.ac.uk 
<mailto:n.c.hockings at bath.ac.uk>  for consideration by 3rd April 2014.
