Call for Papers – 2nd Workshop on Cognitive Information Processing (CIP2010)

This call is also available as a pdf document at

Following the success of the first edition of the workshop on Cognitive Information Processing, we are pleased to announce the second one in this series. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from the machine learning, pattern recognition, statistical signal processing,
communications and radar communities in an effort to promote and encourage cross-fertilization
of ideas and tools.

CIP2010 will take place on June 14-16, 2010, in Italy, in the island of Elba, at the Grand Hotel Elba International (, which dominates the beautiful Bay of Naregno.

CIP2010 is sponsored by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP), and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and it has the technical co-sponsorship of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) and the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS)

The workshop will feature six keynote addresses and technical presentations, oral (invited) and poster (invited & regular), all of which will be included in the workshop proceedings.

Prospective authors are invited to submit full length (six pages) papers via the conference website for presentation in any of the areas listed below. All submitted papers will be subjected to a blind peer-review process.

. Learning theory and modeling;
. Bayesian learning and models;
. Information theoretic learning;
. Graphical and kernel methods;
. Adaptive learning algorithms;
. Ensembles: committees, mixtures, boosting, etc.;
. Data representation and analysis;
. Collaborative sensing techniques;
. Other topics for cognitive information processing.

. Cognitive radio networks;
. Cognitive radio modulation techniques;
. Dynamic spectrum management;
. Opportunistic resource allocation;
. Cognitive radar and sonar;
. Knowledge based target detection, estimation, tracking and identification;
. Waveform agility design;
. Blind source separation;
. Cognitive dynamic systems;
. Distributed, cooperative, and adaptive processing;
. Remote sensing;
. Other application areas.

Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of CIP2010.
