	  abstract     = {Color image segmentation can be considered as a
cluster procedure in feature space. k-means and its adaptive
version, i.e. competitive learning approach are powerful tools
for data clustering. But k-means and competitive learning suffer
from several drawbacks such as dead-unit problem and need to
pre-specify number of cluster. In this paper, we will explore to
use competitive and cooperative learning approach to perform
color image segmentation. In competitive and cooperative
learning approach, seed points not only compete each other, but
also the winner will dynamically select several nearest
competitors to form a cooperative team to adapt to the input
together, finally it can automatically select the correct number
of cluster and avoid the dead-units problem. Experimental
results show that CCL can obtain better segmentation result.},
