Dear Colleagues,

[Apologies for multiple posting]

You're invited to join the workshop on "Robot Perception of Humans", 
co-located with IAS-15. The paper submission deadline has been extended.

Call for Papers: Workshop on Robot Perception of Humans

            Baden-Baden, Germany -- June 11th, 2018


                 In conjunction with IAS-15
       (The 15th Int. Conf. on Intelligent Autonomous Systems)

There is an increasing demand for robots and intelligent systems that 
co-exist with and support humans in their everyday life. A key to 
realize such robots and systems is reliable perception of humans. They 
can behave intelligently and effectively by reliably detecting humans 
and understanding their behaviors, identities, and physical/mental states.

Visual and sensor-based perception of humans has been an important 
research area in robotics, and its application area is expanding, 
accelerated by recent progress of machine learning algorithms and deep 
neural networks. This full-day workshop brings together researchers and 
industry engineers working on novel approaches and applications / 
practical applications of perception of humans.

The goal of the workshop is to recognize the state-of-the-art of human 
perception research and to discuss its future directions and potential 
application scenarios. The workshop consists of several invited talks by 
leading researchers and oral and poster presentations of contributed papers.

Research and application papers are solicited in, but not limited to, 
the following area topics:
      - human detection and tracking
      - person re-identification
      - human pose estimation
      - face detection and recognition
      - gesture recognition
      - human anomaly detection for care and service robots
      - human behavior analysis and surveillance
      - human-robot interaction and collaboration
      - perception of humans for mobile robots and self-driving cars
      - deep learning-based approaches to perception of humans
      - systems and software tools for perception of humans
      - human detection and recognition in/for industrial scenarios

Selected contributed papers are to be invited to a special issue on 
"robot perception of humans" of Robotics journal (ISSN 2218-6581).

Important dates:
           May 11: Deadline of submission of contributed papers
           May 18: Notification of acceptance
           May 31: Submission of camera ready papers
           Jun 11: Workshop held at IAS-15
