CFP: IEEE Transactions on Robotics - Special Issue on Visual SLAM
*IEEE Transactions on Robotics * *Special Issue on Visual SLAM* In recent years there have been spectacular advances in the solution of the simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) problem for indoor and outdoor environments, with systems capable of building large 2D models of the environment using laser scanners. A current trend in SLAM is to use standard, low-cost, compact and information-rich cameras to sense the environment rather than more specialized sensors. IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ROBOTICS invites you to submit papers on this rapidly progressing subject, in response to a call for a Special Issue on Visual SLAM. Techniques that contribute to closing the gap between 'traditional' SLAM techniques and computer vision techniques will be of special interest. The Guest Editors of the Special Issue are: Prof. Jose' Neira email@example.com Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain Dr. Andrew Davison firstname.lastname@example.org Imperial College London, UK Prof. John J. Leonard email@example.com MIT, USA Topics and details can be found in the Call for Papers that can be downloaded from the link below. The important dates are: August 1, 2007: Call for Papers *November 30, 2007: Deadline for Paper Submission* March 15, 2008: Completion of First Review June 30, 2008: Completion of Final Review October 2008: Publication The call for papers can be found at http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/~ieeetro/CFP_T-RO_VSLAM.pdf Regular and short papers for this Special Issue should be submitted in the usual way to T-RO (see details in http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/~ieeetro/TROInformationAuthors.html) Essentially, papers (in PDF) should be submitted by FTP to the site address ftp://ftp.dis.uniroma1.it/pub/ieeetro/incoming. The cover page of the paper should contain the paper title, authors' names and full addresses, abstract, keywords (index terms), and paper type (Regular Paper, Short Paper). The corresponding author should be clearly indicated. A submission letter has to be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org including (as plain text in the message) all information contained in the cover page of the paper and the name of the uploaded file(s). *In the submission email, please specify that the paper is intended for the Special Issue on Visual SLAM.* T-RO considers also multimedia material (typically, videos) accompanying the submission of a paper. Instructions on the preparation of this material can be found at http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/~ieeetro/TROInformationAuthors.html Multimedia will appear side-by-side to the accepted paper in the electronic version of the Special Issue within IEEE Xplore.
