Dear Colleague,


We would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper for IJCNN 2017
Special Session on Machine Learning Methods applied to Vision and Robotics




Anchorage, Alaska (USA)


May 14-19, 2017




organized within International Joint Conference on Neural Networks is the
premier international conference in the area of neural networks.  IJCNN 2017
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 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 Methods in Vision and Robotics to a fruitful
discussion on the evolution and the benefits of this technology to the
