ANNPR 2016 : Artificial Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition
Conference Series : Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition
Call For Papers
The 7th International Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition will be held at Ulm University, Ulm, Germany.
ANNPR 2016 follows the success of ANNPR 2014 (Montreal, Canada), ANNPR 2012 (Trento, Italy), ANNPR 2010 (Cairo, Egypt) and ANNPR 2008 (Paris, France) (to only name a few). The 7th ANNPR workshop will act as a major forum for international researchers and practitioners working in all areas of neural network- and machine learning-based pattern recognition to present and discuss the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.
Workshop proceedings will be published in the Springer LNAI series.
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their articles to a dedicated special issue of the journal Neural Processing Letters, guest-edited by the ANNPR2016 Chairs and titled
"Off the mainstream: advances in neural networks and machine learning for pattern recognition"
Papers are solicited dealing with neural networks, machine learning and pattern recognition which emphasize methodological issues possibly arising in applications.
– Supervised learning
– Unsupervised learning
– Combination of supervised and unsupervised learning
– Feedforward, recurrent, and competitive neural nets
– Hierarchical modular architectures and hybrid systems
– Combination of neural networks and Hidden Markov models
– Multiple classifier systems and ensemble methods
– Probabilistic graphical models
– Kernel methods
– Deep architectures
Applications in Pattern Recognition
– Image processing and segmentation
– Sensor-fusion and multi-modal processing
– Feature extraction, dimension reduction
– Clustering and vector quantization
– Speech and speaker recognition
– Data, text, and web mining
Potential participants should submit a paper describing their work in one of the areas described above. Proceedings will be published as a volume in the Springer LNAI, maximum paper length is 12 pages in LNCS/LNAI format. Instructions for authors, LaTeX templates, etc. are available at the Springer LNCS/LNAI web-site. Submission of a paper constitutes a commitment that, if accepted, one or more authors will attend the workshop.
