This volume presents the proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on - gebraic Frames for the Perception and Action Cycle. AFPAC 2000. held in Kiel, Germany, 10-11 September 2000. The presented topics cover new results in the conceptualization, design, and implementation of visual sensor-based robotics and autonomous systems. Special emphasis is placed on the role of algebraic modelling in the relevant disciplines, such as robotics, computer vision, theory of multidimensional signals, and neural computation. The aims of the workshop are twofold: ?rst, discussion of the impact of algebraic embedding of the task at hand on the emergence of new qualities of modelling and second, facing the strong relations between dominant geometric problems and algebraic modelling. The ?rst workshop in this series, AFPAC'97. inspired several groups to i- tiate new research programs, or to intensify ongoing research work in this ?eld, and the range of relevant topics was consequently broadened, The approach adopted by this workshop does not necessarily ?t the mainstream of worldwide research-granting policy. However, its search for fundamental problems in our ?eld may very well lead to new results in the relevant disciplines and contribute to their integration in studies of the perception-action cycle.
