Overview

Visual navigation, the ability of an autonomous agent to find its way in  a
large, visually complex environment based on visual information, is a
fundamental problem in computer vision and robotics.

This workshop provides a forum to promising ideas proposing to advance
visual navigation by combining recent developments in deep and
reinforcement learning. A special focus lies on approaches that incorporate
more semantic information into navigation, and combine visual input with
other modalities such as language.

Topics

-- Deep Reinforcement Learning for Navigation

-- Deep Learning for Planning and Reasoning

-- Representations for Navigation

-- Vision-Based, Semantic SLAM

-- Learning methods for SLAM

-- 3D Image Understanding

-- Simulation Environments for Navigation and Control

-- Language and Robot Navigation

-- Object Detection, Segmentation for Robot Navigation

Dates

Paper submission deadline: March 25th, 2019

Paper notification date: April 10th, 2019

Camera ready paper: April 15th, 2019

Workshop date: June 16, 2019

Submission details

The workshop accepts 2 page abstracts up to 8 page full papers. The paper
should be formatted the same way a conference submission to CVPR is
formatted
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__cvpr2019.thecvf.com_submission_main-5Fconference_author-5Fguidelines&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=WwaYn02wQtQMTByHDVOuL6mJ2Mch13I5FtqQH0W3-w8&s=iayMFNa3aL9lE8-m1kIAGlueShd30QkUZmpMQGQkZbc&e=>.
Each paper will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The workshop does
not accept double submissions, e.g. no concurrent submissions to other
workshops. The reviewing process is single blind, i.e. the reviewer will
know the authors but the other way around. The accepted papers will be
linked online on the workshop website. They will not be part of the CVPR
proceedings or otherwise archived. The submission webpage is under:
