Call for Papers: IROS 2010 Workshop: Defining and Solving Realistic Perception Problems in Personal Robotics

Perception researchers: When a colleague working on grasping, planning, human-robot interaction, or any other aspect of personal robotics asks you which vision algorithms will work for them today, what do you answer? Which specific problems have you defined, constrained, and solved?  How will these solutions enable other robotics research?  This workshop aims to provide a venue for discussing vision algorithms that can be used today by our fellow personal robotics researchers. 

We solicit paper submissions that include an explicit problem statement including constraints, and describe the robot behavior that the problem's solution would enable.  Each solution should be tested and shown to actually solve the problem, and should be made reproducible by others (either via in-depth explanation or by making source code available).  We encourage you to constrain the problem to the point at which you can solve it, but the solution should remain applicable to real-world situations.  Whether or not you submit a paper, you are invited to attend the workshop.

The submission deadline is July 23, 2010. Please see the workshop website for more detailed information.

Important Dates:

  • Submissions Due: July 23, 2010
  • Notification of Acceptance: August 1, 2010
  • Final Papers Due: August 15,  2010
  • Workshop at IROS: October 18, 2010

Comments

I love the title!

Perhaps the title is a subtle insinuation that other methods are unrealistic...? My vote: develop a sister workshop on unrealistic solutions. It could be ever so comical!

Agreed.

Or maybe just hold a rump session at the workshop to highlight these situations! (With beer of course)
