Call for papers: Special session for WCCI 2014 "Neural Networks applied to Vision and Robotics"


Over the last decades there has been an increasing interest in using neural networks and other computational intelligence paradigms combined with computer vision techniques to create autonomous systems that solve vision problems in different fields. This workshop is designed to serve researchers and developers to publish original, innovative and state-of-the art algorithms and architectures for real time applications in the areas of computer vision, image processing, biometrics, virtual and augmented reality, neural networks, intelligent interfaces and biomimetic object-vision recognition.

This workshop provides a platform for academics, developers, and industry-related researchers belonging to the vast communities of *Neural Networks*, *Computational Intelligence*, *Machine Learning*, *Biometrics*, *Vision systems*, and *Robotics *, to discuss, share experience and explore traditional and new areas of the computer vision and computational intelligence combined to solve a range of problems. The objective of the workshop is to integrate the growing international community of researchers working on the application of Computational Intelligence techniques in Vision and Robotics to a fruitful discussion on the evolution and the benefits of this technology to the society.

After the success of the special session organized for IJCNN 2013, we are pleased to organize a second edition of NNVR in conjunction with WCCI 2014.

The Special Session topics can be identified by, but are not limited to, the following subjects:
  • Artificial Vision
  • Video tracking 
  • 3D Scene reconstruction
  • 3D Tracking in Virtual Reality Environments 
  • 3D Volume visualization
  • Computational Intelligence
  • Intelligent Interfaces (User-friendly Man Machine Interface)
  • Self-adaptation and self-organisational systems
  • Multi-camera and RGB-D camera systems 
  • Robust computer vision algorithms (operation under variable conditions, object tracking, behaviour analysis and learning, scene segmentation) 
  • Gesture and posture analysis and recognition 
  • Biometric Identification and Recognition 
  • Extraction of Biometric Features (fingerprint, iris, face, voice, palm, gait)
  • Surveillance systems
  • Robotics vision
  • Hardware implementation and algorithms acceleration (GPUs, FPGA,s,…)
