Workshop on Localization and Optimization

Wednesday, July 27, 2022, 9:00 - 14:00

Room 02-016/18, Georges-Koehler-Allee 101, Freiburg 79110, Germany

Small-scale internal workshop on both theory and practice of localization at Freiburg University's Faculty of Engineering. All participants present themselves briefly with one slide at the start, followed by 15 minute talks and discussions. Each talk is of introductory nature and focusses on research questions. The aim is that participants learn about each other’s approaches, and detect possible synergies for research collaborations. The workshop is organized by Wenxin Xiong, Katrin Baumgärtner, Christian Schindelhauer, and Moritz Diehl.

Preliminary Program:

09:00 - Welcome

09:05 - Introductions by all Participants (one slide each)

09:20 - Talk 1 Katrin Baumgärtner: Generalized  and Extended Gauss-Newton Method and Its Applications to State and Parameter Estimation

09:40 - Talk 2 Wenxin Xiong: Robust range based localization via alternating direction method of multipliers

10:00 - Talk 3 Patrick Kroh: tba

10:20 - Brainstorming on Overlap and Synergies

10:50 - Coffee Break

11:20 - Talk 4 (Schindelhauer ?)

11:40 - Talk 5 Johannes Wendeberg: 2D/3D Localization using a Single Ultrasound Receiver

12:00 - Talk 6 Sneha Mohanty: Robust RSS-TOA Based Localization via Iterative Message Passing

12:20 - Brainstorming on Overlap and Synergies

12:50 - Wrap-Up

13:00 - Joint Lunch Break

14:00 - End

Please note that your talk should not extend 15 minutes to have some time for discussion!
