Special Session on Hybrid and Adaptive Systems for Computer Vision and Robot Control Affiliated Conference: ICONIP 2010: 17th International Conference on Neural Information Processing Link: http://tur-www1.massey.ac.nz/~nhreyes/ICONIP2010/Session.htm Objectives: This special session aims to provide an opportunity for international researchers to share and review recent advances in the foundations, integration architectures and applications of hybrid and adaptive systems for computer vision and robot control. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Control: Cooperative Control; Hybrid Intelligent Control; Adaptive Control; Robust Control; Networked Control System. Vision: Real-time Object Recognition; Image Processing; Feature Extraction; Pattern Recognition; Human-Computer Interaction; Tracking and Surveillance; Biometrics; Behaviour Recognition; Gesture Recognition; Applications. Automation: Process Automation, Planning and Scheduling; Biomedical Instrumentation; Modelling and Simulation Robotics: Humanoid and Mobile Robotics; Search and Rescue; Bio-robotics; Tele-robotics Publication: Accepted papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer-Verlag. Furthermore, the ICONIP organizers are also looking into the possibility of coming up with a potential special journal issue in line with the special session.
