As part of the International Conference on Intelligent Robot and Systems (IROS) the third workshop "Towards Multi-Modal Cognition" will be held. This workshop aims at exploring and showing the potential of proximity perception for cognitive robotics. Active proximity perception offers great potential for Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) as well as for modeling objects and the environment in a multi-modal context. It is complementary to vision and touch, and today the technology is mature enough to be deployed alongside cameras and tactile sensors.
This workshop has a joint poster & demo session. The prospective participants can aim at presenting novel results with posters. Additionally, we provide PhD-students the opportunity to present their work through short talks, posters and demos in a forum. The IROS workshop will take place on October 25th, 2020 in Las Vegas (USA). Paper submission is extended by September 4th, 2020.
The main organizers of this workshop are Stephan Mühlbacher-Karrer (JOANNEUM RESEARCH ROBOTICS) and Stefan Escaida Navarro (Inria Lille-Nord Europe).
The co-organizers are Hubert Zangl (Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt), Keisuke Koyama (Osaka University), Björn Hein (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), Ulrike Thomas (Chemnitz University of Technology), Hosam Alagi (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), Yitao Ding (Chemnitz University of Technology) and Christian Schöffmann (Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt).
