Dear Colleague,


We would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper for IWANN 2017
Special Session on Machine Learning applied to Vision and Robotics (MLVR)




Cadiz, Spain


14-16 June, 2017




This biennial meeting seeks to provide a discussion forum for scientists,
engineers, educators and students about the latest discoveries and
realizations in the foundations, theory, models and applications of systems
inspired on nature, using computational intelligence methodologies, as well
as in emerging areas related to the above ítems




Over the last decades there has been an increasing interest in using machine
learning methods 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 machine learning
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 Machine Learning applied to Vision and Robotics to a fruitful
discussion on the evolution and the benefits of this technology to the
