Dear Colleague,


We would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper for IJCNN 2015
Special Session on Computational Intelligence applied to Vision and Robotics



Killarney, Ireland.


July 12-17, 2015




organized within International Joint Conference on Neural Networks is the
premier international conference in the area of neural networks.  IJCNN 2015
is organized by the International Neural Network Society (INNS), and
sponsored jointly by INNS and the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society -
the two leading professional organizations for researchers working in neural





Over the last decades there has been an increasing interest in using neural
networks and other computational intelligence paradigms combined with
computer vision techniques to create autonomous systems that solve vision
problems in different fields. This special session is designed to serve
researchers and developers to publish original, innovative and state-of-the
art algorithms and architectures for real time applications in the areas of
computer vision, image processing, biometrics, virtual and augmented
reality, neural networks, intelligent interfaces and biomimetic
object-vision recognition.

This special session provides a platform for academics, developers, and
industry-related researchers belonging to the vast communities of *Neural
Networks*, *Computational Intelligence*, *Machine Learning*, *Biometrics*,
*Vision systems*, and *Robotics *, to discuss, share experience and explore
traditional and new areas of the computer vision and computational
intelligence combined to solve a range of problems. The objective of the
workshop is to integrate the growing international community of researchers
working on the application of Computational Intelligence techniques in
Vision and Robotics to a fruitful discussion on the evolution and the
benefits of this technology to the society.


The Special Session topics can be identified by, but are not limited to, the
following subjects: 

                Artificial Vision 


                Video tracking 

3D Scene reconstruction

                3D Tracking in Virtual Reality Environments

            Computational Intelligence

            Intelligent Interfaces (User-friendly Man Machine Interface)

            Self-adaptation and self-organisational systems

                Multi-camera and RGB-D camera systems 

Robust computer vision algorithms (operation under variable conditions,
object tracking, behaviour analysis and learning, scene segmentation) 

                Gesture and posture analysis and recognition 

                Biometric Identification and Recognition 

                Extraction of Biometric Features (fingerprint, iris, face,
voice, palm, gait)

                Surveillance systems

Robotics vision

                Hardware implementation and algorithms acceleration (GPUs,
