Dear Colleague,


We would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper for WCCI 2018/IJCNN
Special Session on Machine Learning and Deep Learning Methods applied to
Vision and Robotics (MLDLMVR) 


 <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.dtic.ua.es_-7Ejgarcia_IJCNN2018_index.html&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=FepDRrqHxHFdw_OnNXCubpbvVUz6N7GtEmuqKB1tx48&s=OuCIkTsJbf1jLa5ICal6ijfe9pp7KMIFzk2M26KYCF0&e=> WCCI 2018 Special
Session on Machine Learning and Deep Learning Methods applied to Vision and
Robotics (MLDLMVR) 




Over the last decades there has been an increasing interest in using machine
learning and in the last few years, deep learning methods, combined with
other 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*, *Deep
Learning*, *Biometrics*, *Vision systems*, and *Robotics *, to discuss,
share experience and explore traditional and new areas of the computer
vision, machine and deep 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 and
Deep Learning Methods in Vision and Robotics to a fruitful discussion on the
evolution and the benefits of this technology to the society.


The methods and tools applied to vision and robotics include, but are not
limited to, the following:


*	Computational Intelligence methods
*	Machine Learning methods
*	Self-adaptation and self-organisation 
*	Robust computer vision algorithms (operation under variable
conditions, object tracking, behaviour analysis and learning, scene
*	Extraction of Biometric Features (fingerprint, iris, face, voice,
palm, gait)
*	Convolutional Neural Networks CNN  
*	Recurrent Neural Networks RNN 
*	Deep Reinforcement Learning DRL
*	Hardware implementation and algorithms acceleration (GPUs, FPGA,s,Â


The fields of application can be identified, but are not limited to, the


*	Video and Image Processing
*	Video tracking 
*	3D Scene reconstruction
*	3D Tracking in Virtual Reality Environments 
*	3D Volume visualization
*	Intelligent Interfaces (User-friendly Man Machine Interface)
*	Multi-camera and RGB-D camera systems 
*	Multi-modal Human Pose Recovery and Behavior Analysis
*	Gesture and posture analysis and recognition 
*	Biometric Identification and Recognition 
*	Extraction of Biometric Features (fingerprint, iris, face, voice,
palm, gait)
*	Surveillance systems
*	Autonomous and Social Robots
*	Robotic vision
*	Industry 4.0
*	IoT and Cyber-physical Systems
