Call for papers: Special session for WCCI 2014 "Evolutionary Computer Vision"

Computer vision is a major unsolved problem in computer science and engineering. Over the last decade there has been increasing interest in using evolutionary computation approaches to solve vision problems. Computer vision provides a range of problems of varying difficulty for the development and testing of evolutionary algorithms.

The theme proposed special session is the use of evolutionary computation for solving computer vision and image processing problems. This special session aims to bring together theories and applications of evolutionary computation to computer vision and image processing problems. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work to this Special Session. Topics of interest include but are not limited to 

New theories and methods in different EC paradigms to computer vision and image processing including
  • Evolutionary algorithms such as Genetic algorithms, genetic programming, evolutionary strategy and evolutionary programming;
  • Swarm Intelligence such as particle swarm optimisation, ant colony optimisation, and differential evolution; and
  • Other approaches such as learning classifier systems, harmony search, and artificial immune systems. Cross-fertilization of evolutionary computation and other techniques such as neural networks and fuzzy systems is also encouraged.
Applications in computer vision and image processing including
  • Edge detection in noisy images
  • Image segmentation in biological images
  • Automatic feature extraction, construction and selection in complex images
  • Object identification and scene analysis for medical applications
  • Object detection and classification in security scenarios
  • Handwritten digit recognition and detection
  • Vehicle plate detection
  • Face detection and recognition
  • Texture image analysis
  • Automatic target recognition in military services
  • Gesture identification and recognition
  • Robot vision
Important dates:
  • Paper Submission: 20 December 2013
  • Decision Notification: 15 March 2014
  • Camera-Ready Submission: 15 April 2014
Paper Submission:
You should follow the IEEE CEC/WCCI 2014 Submission Web Site. Special session papers are treated the same as regular conference papers.
