Call For Papers: International Journal of Robotics Research


Call for Papers: International Journal of Robotics Research: Special issue on "Semantic Perception for Robots in Indoor Environments"

In an effort to disseminate the current advances in perception for manipulation, and to stimulate a discussion on the future research directions in this field, the International Journal of Robotics Research invites papers for a special issue in this area. It is our expectation and goal that this special issue will succeed in invigorating research interests towards the development and applications of perception for manipulation systems.

The list of topics of interest includes, but is not necessarily limited to:

  • 3D object recognition
  • Semantic scene interpretation based on point clouds
  • Object modelling
  • Accurate 3D collision models
  • Surface reconstruction
  • Vision for manipulation
  • Deformable objects
  • Object classification based on manipulation experience/capabilities
