ANNPR 2012 : IAPR Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition
Conference Series : Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition
Call For Papers
We are pleased to announce that the 5th INNS IAPR TC3 GIRPR International Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition will be held at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Trento, Italy. ANNPR 2012 follows the success of ANNPR 2003 (Florence), ANNPR 2006 (Ulm), ANNPR 2008 (Paris), and ANNPR 2010 (Cairo). This 5th 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. This year the workshop received the endorsement from the International Neural Network Society (INNS), from the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), from the Technical Committees 3 (TC3) of IAPR ("Neural Networks & Computational Intelligence"), and from GIRPR (Gruppo Italiano Ricercatori in Pattern Recognition). Papers are solicited dealing with neural networks, machine learning and pattern recognition which emphasize methodological issues possibly arising in applications.
They should be related but not limited to the following topics.
Combination of supervised and unsupervised learning.
Feedforward networks and kernel machines
Recurrent and competitive neural networks.
Hierarchical modular architectures and hybrid systems.
Combination of neural networks and Hidden Markov models.
Multiple classifier systems and ensemble methods.
Probabilistic graphical models
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. Electronic submission in camera-ready format is required.
On-line submission via EasyChair will be made available on this web-page
Fellow scientists wishing to organize a special session are invited to
submit a proposal to the ANNPR 2012 Chairs. Proposals should include the
session title and a list of topics covered by the session. Three to six
papers will be required for a special session to take place. Once the
special session proposal has been approved by the ANNPR 2012 Chairs, the
session organizers are expected to carry out the review process for the
papers submitted to their session. Proposals must be received by March 1,
Paper submission: May 6, 2012
Notification of acceptance: June 3, 2012
Camera ready copies: June 17, 2012
Early registration: June 17, 2012
Workshop: September 20-22, 2012
Do not hesitate to contact the ANNPR 2012 Chairs via e-mail.
