We are proud to present a special session on Machine learning in Advanced Machine Vision (AMV2019). This special session is organized in conjunction with ICMLA2019 and taking place in Boca Raton, Florida, USA. It is scheduled on Monday the 16th of December 2019 (TBC) (all-day workshop).
A large variety of industrially oriented applications (e.g. quality control, pick and place) have in the past decades been successfully implemented throughout a wide range of industries. These implementations are characterized by very controlled surroundings and objects (e.g. CAD models of objects available, controlled lighting). Advanced Machine Vision refers to computer vision and machine learning - based systems where such assumptions do not hold, for example, when handling biological objects as seen in the food-production industry or when operating outdoors. With recent advancements in sensing and processing power, the potential for further automation in industry based on computer vision and machine learning is clearly present. Furthermore, the exploding domain of computer vision and machine learning algorithms (e.g. deep learning) provides dozens of new opportunities. However, there is in general a major gap between the topics in focus at major international computer vision and machine learning conferences and the actual industrial needs. More often approaches are hardly transferable into practical and robust solutions for industrial challenges. The ambition of this workshop is to close this gap, by bringing together both academics and practitioners from the field.
The special session will take place at the ICMLA2019 conference venue.

The ambition of this full-day AMV2019 special session is to bring together practitioners and researchers from different disciplines related to Advanced Machine Vision to share ideas and methods on current and future use of computer vision and machine learning algorithms in real-life and industrially relevant systems. This field raises the need of applied research that focusses on the technology transfer from academics towards practitioners, yielding several challenges like top-notch accuracies, real-time processing, minimal training data, minimal manual input, user-friendly interfaces, …
To this end we welcome contributions with a strong focus on (but not limited to) the following topics within Advanced Machine Vision:
Data input sources
Improving robustness of algorithms
Removing or reducing the need of training data
Processing power and memory requirements
Obtaining training data and ground truth annotations
Lab testing versus inline testing
Transfer learning towards new applicational domains
Deep learning for advanced machine vision
Quality assessment of non-trivial objects
Real-life and industrially relevant applications
The special session has a best paper award of 700 euro sponsored by ROBOVISION.
Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality, original (i.e. not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in any peer-reviewed venue including journal, conference or workshop) research.
Papers submitted for reviewing should be conform to IEEE specifications. Manuscript templates can be downloaded from the IEEE website.
Papers are limited to 8 pages. All the papers will go through double-blind peer review process. Authors names and affiliations should not appear in the submitted paper. Authors prior work should be cited in the third person. Authors should also avoid revealing their identities and/or institutions in the text, figures, links, etc. A paper should be submitted to one track only. Submission of the same paper to multiple tracks will result in rejection of the paper.
After review, authors will either be accepted as regular papers (with an oral presentation) or as short papers (with a poster presentation).
Regular papers should be up to 6 pages long. Authors of regular papers can add up to 2 extra pages, at an additional cost of $50 per page. A regular paper cannot be more than 8 pages long. References and any other additional material must be included in this number of pages.
Short papers should be up to 4 pages long. Authors of short papers can add up to 2 extra pages, at an additional cost of $50 per page. A short paper cannot be more than 6 pages long. References and any other additional material must be included in this number of pages.
All submissions are handled through the CMT submission website of the ICMLA2019 conference: CLICK HERE FOR SUBMISSION Make sure that you select the correct workshop (Machine Learning in Advanced Machine Vision) at the top left corner of the CMT submission website, when hitting the button “new submission”.
Authors are requested to submit their paper in a single PDF file (maximum file size 20MB). Submission of supplementary material is optional (up to 100MB). Accepted file formats for supplementary material are: PDF, PNG, JPG, GIF, ZIP, MP4, WMV, MPEG or AVI.
