Call for Papers

Joint Austrian Computer Vision and Robotics Workshop

April 16-17, 2020, Graz, Austria

The joint workshop aims at further fostering collaboration of Austria‘s Computer Vision and Robotics communities and of discussing emerging topics in both fields. We look forward to the presentation and discussion of recent research as well as current projects from the Austrian Computer Vision and Robotics communities.

The workshop will be held at Graz University of Technology from 16 to 17 April, 2020 and is supported by Gesellschaft für Mess-, Automatisierungs- und Robotertechnik (GMAR) and by the Austrian Association for Pattern Recognition (AAPR). A specific goal is to strengthen the cooperation between academia and industry. Therefore, the contributions and participation from industry is strongly encouraged, e.g., with short spotlight papers. The workshop will be organized in the two tracks, Computer Vision and Robotics, with shared presentations and invited talks of common interest.

The general topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:


General Topics Robotics:

- Robot kinematics and dynamics

- Modelling and control

- Mechatronic design

- Robot perception

- Human-Robot interaction; usability

- SLAM and navigation

- Estimation, diagnosis and learning

- Planning and plan execution

- Knowledge representation and reasoning

- Software engineering and architectures for mobile robots

- Safety & security

- Collaborative robots – cobots
