Visual Place Recognition - What is it Good For?

Workshop at Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS)
June 19, 2016 --- Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA

Website: http://tinyurl.com/vprice-rss16
Submission via eMail to niko(dot)suenderhauf(at)roboticvision(dot)org

Submission deadline: May 8
===========================================

This workshop discusses novel concepts and ideas for robust vision‐based place recognition in severely changing environments. Such changes – induced e.g. by the time of day, weather or seasonal effects as well as human activity – are a ubiquitous challenge for all autonomous systems aiming at long‐term operations in both indoor and outdoor settings, and are highly relevant to visual neuroscience.

This year’s edition of the workshop puts a focus on contributions that show, discuss, and evaluate visual place recognition working in real robotic systems, in concert with mapping or SLAM, or embedded into a real-world application.

The workshop features a tutorial that introduces the basic principles and the state of the art to participants without previous experience in the field. Invited talks and a number of contributed talks discuss the newest developments, concepts and ideas in the areas covered by the workshop topics. We will continue to run a place recognition challenge in association with the workshop, building on its inaugural success in 2015.

Important Dates:
============

Submission Deadline: May 8, 2016 (anywhere on the planet)
Acceptance Notification: May 15, 2016
Workshop Date: June 18, 2016


Paper Submissions:
==============

Papers will be presented in a short talk (expect 3-5 minutes) followed by a poster session on individual posters.

This year’s edition of the workshop puts a focus on contributions that show, discuss, and evaluate visual place recognition working in real robotic systems, in concert with mapping or SLAM, or embedded into a real-world application.
Topics of interest to this workshop include, but are not necessarily limited to:
Novel techniques for change-invariant whole image matching
Approaches for invariant image feature learning
Learning, modelling, and predicting systematic or repeating appearance changes over time
Learning stable / non-changing environmental features
Exploiting semantic information for long-term place recognition
Novel concepts of incorporating uncertain place recognition in SLAM / navigation systems
Standardized benchmarks and long-term datasets in changing environments

We explicitly encourage the submission of papers describing work in progress, preliminary results or novel concepts.
