Call for Workshops

Home > Contributions > Call for Workshops


The ICPR 2012 Workshop Chairs invite workshop proposals for the 21st International Conference on Pattern Recognition ( The workshops must be full-day and will be held on November 11th, 2012, immediately before the start of the main conference.


The ICPR 2012 workshops will provide an informal setting where participants will have opportunities to discuss technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. Members from all segments of the pattern recognition community are invited to submit workshop proposals for review. The topics of the workshops should be such that the workshops do not divert papers from the main conference. Each proposal will be assessed for its scientific content, proposed structure and overall relevance. Workshop organizers will be responsible for inviting speakers and ensuring their participation, submission and review of papers, and structuring leading discussion sessions.


Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for preparing a Call for Papers by February 6, 2012.


ICPR 2012 will be responsible for the following:

- Providing a meeting venue with necessary equipment and logistical supports for the workshop including coffee breaks and supporting staff in each room.
- Duplicating workshop notes (up to a total of 100 pages per participant) and distributing them to participants. Note that workshop papers will not be included in the ICPR 2012 proceedings. Workshop organizers are encouraged to find an alternative means of publishing their workshop proceedings.
