Third IAPR TC3 International Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition
July 2 - 4 2008
Pierre & Marie Curie University, Paris, France
We are pleased to announce that the Third IAPR International Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition will take place in Paris.
The TC3 Neural Networks & Computational Intelligence is one of the 20 Technical Committees of the International Association on Pattern Recognition (IAPR). The scope of this workshop includes all kinds of Computational Intelligence approaches, including artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computing, with focus on pattern recognition applications. ANNPR 2008 follows the success of the first workshops: ANNPR 2003 held at the University of Florence, Italy, and ANPPR 2006 held at castle Reisensburg, University of Ulm, Germany.
This third ANNPR workshop will act as a major forum for international researchers and practitioners working in all areas of neural network based pattern recognition to present and discuss the latest researches, results, and ideas in these areas.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Supervised and unsupervised learning.
Combinations of supervised and unsupervised learning.
Feed forward networks and kernel machines, recurrent and competitive neural networks.
Hierarchical modular architectures and hybrid systems.
Multiple classifier systems and ensemble methods.
Applications in Pattern Recognition:
Image processing and segmentation
Sensor fusion and multimodal processing.
Feature extraction, dimension reduction, clustering and vector quantization
Speech and speaker recognition.
Document image analysis and recognition
Data, text and web mining
Original and unpublished contributions are solicited which include regular papers and extended abstracts. All submissions will be subject to a blind review process by two referees. Workshop proceedings will be published in the Springer LNAI series. Potential participants should submit a paper describing their work in the areas described above. Each regular paper must be accompanied by an abstract summarizing the contribution it makes to the field. Maximum paper length for regular papers is 12 pages in LNCS format. Extended abstracts can have at most 4 pages. Submission of a paper constitutes a commitment that, if accepted, one or more authors will attend and participate in the workshop.
