AI*IA 2001 Workshop on

Artificial Intelligence, Vision and Pattern Recognition

Monday, 24 September 2001

joint with
7th Congress of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA 2001)
Dipartimento di Informatica, Università di Bari


An intelligent agent which operates in the real world, be it a robot or a software system, should be able to perceive and interact with moving objects, people, etc., in unstructured and unpredictable environments. In order to accomplish its own task, the agent must be able to understand its workspace, meaning that it should be able to generate an internal high-level description of what is perceived. Generating this description requires sensory data processing by means of Pattern Recognition techniques; it also requires the generation of bi and tri-dimensional reconstructions by means of Computer Vision techniques, and it lastly requires symbolic computation which are typically provided by Artificial Intelligence techniques. Building an agent able to understand its environment is a demanding task that can be achieved only by means of the joint application of techniques, methodologies and experiences from several advanced research fields. The workshop is among the events of the Congress AI*IA 2001; the aim is to encourage the cooperation between Italian researchers working in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, who are interested in exploring opportunities for cross-fertilization of theories and methodologies, and laying foundations for new intelligent agents that interact with the surrounding world at high level.


Researchers are invited to submit contributions concerning methodology and application issues raised by the joint application of Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition techniques. Preliminary work highlighting innovative and promising research directions is encouraged. In particular, contributions addressing the following topics are welcome (the list is not exhaustive):


A selection of the accepted contributions will be published in the journal AI*IA Notizie. A summary of one page maximum (A4 format) should be sent, preferably by e-mail, by 15 May 2001 to the following address:
