Submission and Reviews

We invite submissions of 3 page extended abstracts on research ideas and publications you would like to present as part of the workshop. The 3 pages exclude references and represent an upper limit as long as you communicate your presentation topic clearly in your abstract.

The presented research is not required to be novel and we allow presenting previously published work. This workshop should not necessarily be considered as a venue for publication, but rather as a place to gather the community interested in scene understanding in unstructured environments.

The submissions will be processed via CMT, follow this link to the CMT submission page.

Submission Format

Extended abstracts submitted to the workshop should conform with the Springer LCNS format. The template is also available on Overleaf.

The extended abstract length is limited to 3 pages excluding references. All papers have to be submitted as a single PDF file.

We allow supplementary material to be submitted as well. The material can contain documents, images, scripts, and videos. The material should be submitted as a ZIP file and should not exceed 50 MB.

The SUUE workshop reviewing is single blind and managed over Microsoft CMT.
