Important dates:

Full paper submission: May 20, 2017

Notification of acceptance: June 3, 2017

Camera-ready paper due: June 16, 2017


Call for Papers:

The goal of this workshop is to bring the robotics and vision communities

together to discuss both recent successes in articulated object tracking,

its use in robotic manipulation, and also the remaining limitations. The

ultimate goal is to identify directions for further improvement of

object tracking systems that can be exploited in robotics to allow robots

and humans to work together in a shared space safely, robustly, and


We are soliciting extended abstracts in the RSS

format (4 pages plus references). Accepted papers will be presented

as a short spotlight talk and in a poster session. We are also soliciting

demos to be given during the poster session. Live demos may

accompany a submitted paper but they are not required to (i.e. standalone

demos of existing work will be considered).

Topics include (but are not limited to):


   Human hand / body tracking

   Robot manipulator / arm tracking

   Multi-robot system state estimation

   State estimation for human / robot interaction

   Safe and efficient human / robot hand-offs

   Kinematic chain inference

   Fully non-rigid state estimation

   State estimation for interacting heterogeneous articulated bodies

   Articulated model reconstruction

   Shape adaptation for deformable models

   In-hand model tracking / reconstruction

   Sensor fusion for articulated state estimation

   Visual servoing for articulated objects
