Call for Papers - ISSNIP 2011
A symposium will be held in Adelaide as part of the International Conference on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing (ISSNIP) 2011, 6-9th December 2011.

All accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Press and appear in the Conference Proceedings and on IEEE Xplore. Extended versions of the selected papers will be published as a special issue of a leading journal

ISSNIP was created in 2004 to bring together a network of researchers to address fundamental cross-disciplinary issues of sensor networks and Information Processing in large, complex, distributed interacting systems with direct applications in health, the environment and security. ISSNIP brings together distinguished researchers from disciplines that include mathematics, statistics, computer science, biology, and electrical and mechanical engineering to create an outstanding intellectual infrastructure. This symposium will bring together Australian and overseas researchers in the area of Autonomous and Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS). These include tele-operated, semi-autonomous, and fully autonomous vehicles and networks of such systems in the air, land, and maritime environments. The focus of the symposium will be on the theories, techniques, algorithms, technologies and challenges associated with such systems, and the analytical strategies applied in evaluating them.

The Autonomous Systems symposium will feature technical presentations and invited talks held over three days. Papers are solicited for, but not limited to, the following areas:

Ø  Autonomous Navigation: motion detection & estimation, stereo-vision, obstacle avoidance & tracking, topographic processing, map generation, visualisation, trajectory mapping, mission planning, optic flow techniques, bio-mimetic & insect navigation, homing & cognitive mapping, collision avoidance, advanced guidance & control techniques

Ø  Sensors, Sensing, & Perception: sensor miniaturisation, sensor arrays, image/sensor registration, feature & pattern recognition/representation, automatic target detection & recognition, multi-aspect image processing, data association, multi-sensor fusion, advanced signal processing, parameter estimation, health & usage monitoring systems

Ø  Behaviour & Learning: machine intelligence, machine learning, reinforcement learning adaptive learning, intelligent agents, cognitive modelling, neural networks, Bayesian networks, fuzzy logic, case reasoning, performance analysis & prediction, knowledge representation, hierarchal decomposition, probabilistic reasoning systems

Ø  Multi-UVS Systems & Teaming: multi-agent systems, distributed systems, de-centralised control, self-organising systems, complex adaptive systems, network dynamics, emergent systems, resource management, multi-vehicle control, formation control, cooperative & competitive behaviour, team formation/separation, swarming & swarm intelligence
