CFP: Workshop on Online Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning

http://www.visapp.org/OPRMLT.htm

First Call for Papers
=====================

International Workshop on
"Online Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning Techniques for
Computer-Vision Applications" (OPRMLT),
Island of Madeira, Portugal
In conjunction with the VISAPP 2008 conference, 22-25 January, 2008 Date:
22 January, 2008
Chairs: Bogdan Raducanu, Jordi Vitri, Ales Leonardis

Scope:
In real life, visual learning is supposed to be a continuous process.
Opposite to this, in machine vision,
learning has been so far considered in a limited and isolated way. Most of
the nowadays approaches,
with very few exceptions, require the intervention of the human operator
to collect, segment and store
hand-picked data and train pattern classifiers with them. However, for
real world scenarios, it is unlikely
to know beforehand the number of total classes or the exact number of
instances per class. There is a recent
trend in pattern recognition represented by online learning approaches,
which treat to continuously update the
data representation when new information arrives. Starting with a minimal
set, the initial knowledge is expanded,
by incorporating incoming instances, some of them which have not been
previously available or foreseen at
the application creation stage. An interesting characteristic of this
strategy is that the train and test phases take
place simultaneously. Given the increasing interest on this subject, the
current call for papers is intended to offer
the possibility to discuss the most recent advances in the area.

Topics:
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- feature extraction and representation
- incremental/decremental learning strategies
- online classification
- unsupervised clustering
- novelty detection
- knowledge discovery
- optimal data representation to manage large datasets
- extraction and creation of semantic content from data
- contextual representation and reasoning
- developmental architectures
- modelling of cognitive processes

Final Paper Submission and Registration: November 19, 2007

Submission:
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in any of the topics
listed above. All papers must
be written in English, and the length should not exceed 10 pages
(including figures and tables).
Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex formats) are
available at the following web
page (http://www.visapp.org/paper_templates.htm). Papers (preferably in
PDF format) should be submitted
electronically via the web-based submission system at:
http://www.visapp.org/paper_submission.htm.

Workshop Proceedings:
All accepted and registered papers will be published in the workshop
proceedings book (under an ISBN reference,
 issued by INSTICC Press). A CD-ROM with the proceedings will also be
available. A selection of the best selected
papers will be considered for improvement and publication in a special
issue of Image and Vision Computing Journal.

Registration Information:
At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the workshop.
