This workshop aims at bringing together researchers interested in sharing their
work in good experimental practice of robotic perception. The workshop main
topic is vision-based odometry and SLAM, but we encourage also contributions on
different aspects of perception applied to mobile robots.

Main topic
- Vision-based odometry and SLAM

Other topics
- 3D range cameras
- Cognitive robot vision systems
- Distributed perception
- Feature extraction and representation
- Motion detection and tracking
- Multi-camera robot vision
- Omnidirectional robot vision
- Real-time vision systems for mobile robots
- Robot vision benchmarking and evaluation
- Vision and manipulation
- Vision-based robotic industrial applications
- Vision-based robotic learning
- Visually guided robotics
- Vision hardware systems for mobile robots
- Visual tracking for robotics applications
