Special Session on
Advanced Soft Computing for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing
The 5th Indian International Conference on Artificial Intelligence

December 14-16, 2011, Tumkur (near Bangalore), India

A Special Session on Advanced Soft Computing for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing will be held during the 5th Indian International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IICAI-11).

In recent days, the approaches of Soft Computing play a vital role in both Pattern Recognition and Image Processing. This special session is organized for the researchers and professionals to share their knowledge, report and new advances in pattern recognition and image processing using soft computing tools.


Scope of the Session
This session intends to focus on advanced and unconventional soft computing strategies useful for pattern recognition and mage processing dealing with symbolic data analysis, fuzzy-symbolic data analysis, Swarm optimization, rough set based analysis, simulated annealing based analysis, etc.

Special contributions employing conventional soft computing media such as neural networks and Fuzzy analysis would also be considered
