6D object pose estimation

News

Introduction

The task of estimating the 6D pose of an object (3D translation and 3D rotation) is of great importance for many higher level operations such as robotic manipulation, augmented reality, scene interpretation and autonomous driving. In this workshop, people working on relevant topics in both industry and academia will share up-to-date advances and identify open problems. The workshop will feature several high-quality invited talks, presentations of accepted papers and a challenge on 6D object pose estimation from RGB/RGB-D images.

We invite submissions of 1) papers of unpublished work and 2) extended abstracts of preliminary or already published work. The papers can be long (14 pages excluding references) or short (6 pages excluding references) and will be peer-reviewed. If accepted, the papers will be published in the ECCV workshop proceedings and presented as orals or posters at the workshop. Accepted extended abstracts will be presented as posters. General submission guidelines can be found here. Papers should be submitted to the CMT system and extended abstracts by e-mail to r6d.workshop@gmail.com.

The covered topics include but are not limited to:

We invite submissions of results to a challenge on 6D object pose estimation.
The challenge will be announced soon, please stay tuned!
