Call for Contributions

International Workshop on Lines, Planes and Manhattan Models for 3-D Mapping (LPM 2017)

September 28, 2017

At IROS 2017, Vancouver

Contributions in the form of proposals for talks and posters are invited for the above workshop. Full details are on the workshop webpages:


Deadline for proposals (2 pages): August 4, 2017.


LPM 2017 aims to bring together researchers working on the use of lines, planes and Manhattan models in deriving 3-D maps of physical environments. Such models have a long track record in providing effective priors to constrain mapping, increasing robustness, stability and efficiency, especially in man-made environments, both indoors and outdoors. The models have been used successfully in Robotics using a variety of sensors including LiDAR, monocular and binocular vision, and more recently, RGB-D sensors.

The purpose of the workshop is to reflect on the advances in the area and to provide an opportunity for new research to be presented. In addition to keynote and invited talks, proposals are invited for talks and poster presentations relating to the above methods in any area of Robotics. These could provide a review and reflection on previous work or report on new approaches and innovations. 

Keynote Speakers

Sudipta Sinha, Interactive Media (IMG) Group, Microsoft Research Redmond

Yasutaka Furukawa, Washington University in St. Louis (Simon Fraser University from Aug 1st)
