The 9th International Conference on Control, Automation, Robotics and Vision, ICARCV 2006, will be held in Singapore from 5 - 8 December 2006. The conference is organised by the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and Institution of Engineers, Singapore. The technical sponsors are IEEE Control Systems Society, IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society and Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology. The conference focuses on both theory and applications mainly covering the topics of control, automation, robotics and vision. In addition to the technical sessions, there will be invited sessions, tutorials and keynote addresses.
The Proceedings of ICARCV are indexed by ISI Proceedings, EI Compendex and included in the IEEE Xplore.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

*  CONTROL: Adaptive control; Robust control; Process control; Complex systems; Identification and estimation; Nonlinear systems; Intelligent systems; Discrete event systems; Hybrid systems; Networked control systems; Delay systems; Neural networks; Fuzzy systems; Control of biological systems; Precision motion control; Control applications; Control engineering education.

*  AUTOMATION: Man-machine interactions; Process automation; Intelligent automation; Factory modelling and simulation; Home, laboratory and service automation; Network-based systems; Planning, scheduling and coordination; Nano-scale automation and assembly; Instrumentation systems; Biomedical instrumentation and applications.

*  ROBOTICS: Modelling and identification; Robot control; Mobile robotics; Mobile sensor networks; Perception systems; Micro robots and micro-manipulation; Visual servoing; Search, rescue and field robotics; Robot sensing and data fusion; Localization, navigation and mapping; Dexterous manipulation; Medical robots and bio-robotics; Human centred systems; Space and underwater robots; Tele-robotics; Mechanism design and applications.

*  VISION: Image/video analysis; Feature extraction, grouping and segmentation; Scene analysis; Pattern recognition; Learning in vision; Human-computer interaction; Tracking and surveillance; Biometrics; Biomedical Image analysis; Activity/behaviour recognition; Applications.

Selection of the best paper will be made at the Conference based on both the technical content and presentation. The winner will be chosen by the Technical Program Committee in consultation with the International Advisory Committee.

Papers must be written in English and should describe original work in detail. Please download the template from the conference website and submit the full papers online by 1 April, 2006. Upon acceptance, authors will be required to register and present their papers.

The Technical Program Committee is soliciting proposals for invited sessions focusing on topics of ICARCV 2006. Prospective organisers should submit proposals to the Invited Session Chairman eericsung at ntu.edu.sg by 1 March, 2006. Invited sessions are to provide a forum for focused discussions on new topics, or innovative applications of established approaches.
