                 ANNPR 2006

   2nd IAPR TC3 International Workshop on
Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition

       August 31 - September 2 2006
University of Ulm, Reisensburg Castle (Germany)

The workshop proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag (LNAI).

Aim of the workshop:
ANNPR 2006 follows the success of the first workshop ANNPR 2003
held at the University of Florence, Italy, in September 2003.
This 2nd ANNPR workshop will act as a major forum for international
researchers and practitioners working in all areas of neural network based
pattern recognition to present and discuss the latest research, results,
and ideas in these areas.
The TC3 "Neural Networks & Computational Intelligence" is
one of the 20 technical committees of the International Association
on Pattern Recognition (IAPR). The scope of this TC is on all
kinds of Computational Intelligence approaches, including artificial
neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computing, with focus
on pattern recognition applications.

Papers are solicited dealing with neural networks and pattern
recognition which emphasize methodological issues arising in
They should be related but not limited to the following topics.

Methodological issues:
-    Supervised learning.
-    Unsupervised learning.
-    Combination of supervized and unsupervized learning.
-    Feedforward networks and kernel machines
-    Recurrent and competitive neural networks.
-    Hierarchical modular architectures and hybrid systems.
-    Combination of neural networks and Hidden Markov models.
-    Multiple classifier systems and ensemble methods.

Applications in Pattern Recognition
-    Image processing and segmentation.
-    Sensorfusion and multimodal processing.
-    Feature extraction, dimension reduction.
-    Clustering and vector quantisation.
-    Speech and speaker recognition.
-    Data, text, and web mining.
-    Bioinformatics.

Original and unpublished contributions are solicited which include
regular papers and extended abstracts.
Potential participants should submit a paper describing their work
in one of the areas described above. Each regular paper must be
accompanied by an abstract summarizing the contribution it makes
to the field.
Maximum paper length for regular papers is 12 pages in LNCS format.
Extended abstracts can have at most four pages. Submission of a paper
constitutes a commitment that, if accepted, one or more authors will
attend and participate in the workshop. The workshop
proceedings will be published in the Springer LNAI series.
Electronic submission in camera-ready format is required.

Papers must be sent to:
Friedhelm Schwenker, Department of Neural Information Processing,
University of Ulm (Email:  friedhelm.schwenker at uni-ulm.de)

Important Dates:
Paper submission: March 30, 2006
Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2006
Camera ready copies: May 30, 2006
