The second LPM workshop was held at ICRA 2019 on Thursday 23rd May 2019 in Montreal following on from LPM 2017. The workshop consisted of 2 keynote talks and 7 invited speakers, covering new work in the area of line, plane and Manhattan modelling in 3-D reconstruction. Many thanks to all who took part. We are planning a further installment at a future ICRA/IROS conference. Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved.

Aims and Scope

LPM 2019 aims to bring together researchers working on the use of lines, planes and Manhattan models in deriving 3-D maps of physical environments. Such models have a long track record in providing effective priors to constrain mapping, increasing robustness, stability and efficiency, especially in man-made environments, both indoors and outdoors. The models have been used successfully in Robotics using a variety of sensors including LiDAR, monocular and binocular vision, and more recently, RGB-D sensors.

The purpose of the workshop is to reflect on the advances in the area and to provide an opportunity for new research to be presented. In addition to keynote and invited talks, proposals are invited for talks and poster presentations relating to the above methods in any area of Robotics. These could provide a review and reflection on previous work or report on new approaches and innovations.
