Call for Papers - RSS 2014 2nd Workshop on Multi VIew Geometry in RObotics (MVIGRO)
July 13, 2014, Berkeley
Website: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/events/mvigro/


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

Following up on the success and the broad participation in MVIGRO 2013, this workshop brings together researchers from the robotics and computer vision communities, to discuss recent advances in multiple view geometry with application to robotics. Multi-view geometry plays a key role in many areas of robotics and 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. While the research field witnessed a proliferation of excellent contributions and working solutions, some challenges still stand on the way to fully autonomous robots. Examples of these challenges are long-term robust operation (e.g. autonomous driving), ability to deal with dynamic, deformable, and cluttered environments (e.g., robot-assisted surgery or navigation in human populated environments), and high level scene understanding (e.g., object recognition and tracking). Harnessing the full potential of multiple view geometry can address these challenges, enhancing the societal impact of robotics. 

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.
