Call For Papers

Visual Localization is the problem of estimating the position and orientation, i.e., the camera pose, from which an image was taken. Long-Term Visual Localization is the problem of robustly handling changes in the scene. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) is the problem of tracking the motion of a camera (or sensor system) while simultaneously building a (3D) map of the scene. Similarly, Visual Odometry (VO) algorithms track the motion of a sensor system, without necessarily creating a map of the scene. Localization, SLAM, and VO are highly related problems, e.g., SLAM algorithms can be used to construct maps that are later used by Localization techniques, Localization approaches can be used to detect loop closures in SLAM and SLAM / VO can be used to integrate frame-to-frame tracking into real-time Localization approaches.

Visual Localization, SLAM, and VO are all fundamental capabilities required in many Computer Vision and Robotics applications, such as Augmented / Mixed / Virtual Reality and other emerging applications based on location context, such as scene understanding, city navigation and tourist recommendation, and autonomous vehicles such as self-driving cars and other robots. Consequently, visual localization, SLAM, and VO are important research areas, both in academia and industry.

This workshop covers a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to.
