Call for Paper


Joint Austrian Computer Vision and Robotics Workshop

September 17-18, 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.
