ICPR2020 call for Papers

ICPR 2020 is the premier world conference in Pattern Recognition. It covers both theoretical issues and applications of the discipline. We solicit original research for publication in the main conference. Topics of interest include all aspects of Pattern Recognition, not limited to the following detailed list:

Track 1: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning for Pattern Analysis

  • statistical, syntactic and structural pattern recognition
  • classification and clustering
  • artificial neural networks architectures and models
  • machine learning:  symbolic learning, deep learning, transfer learning, active and ensemble learning, semi-supervised learning and spectral methods, reinforcement learning and temporal models

Track 2: Biometrics, Human Analysis and Behavior Understanding

Biometric systems and forensics applications:

  • hard biometrics: face, iris, gait, fingerprint, speech-based recognition
  • soft biometrics: skin, hair, facial and body measurements, behavior, facial expression-based recognition
  • multi-biometrics
  • closed set, open set, open world identity recognition
  • gesture, action and event recognition and tracking
  • human computer interaction: human body motion and gesture-based interaction, speech and natural language-based interaction
  • affective computing
  • pattern recognition for surveillance and security

Track 3: Computer Vision, Robotics and Intelligent Systems

  • early and low-level vision
  • physics-based vision and perceptual organization
  • stereo and multiple view geometry, 3D shape recovery
  • 2D/3D object detection and recognition
  • motion, tracking and video analysis
  • deformable object tracking and registration
  • object recognition and manipulation
  • image and video analysis and understanding
  • vision for autonomous driving
  • vision for robotics, robot navigation and SLAM

Track 4: Document and Media Analysis

  • audio and acoustic processing and analysis
  • spoken language processing
  • character and text recognition
  • handwriting recognition
  • document understanding
  • content based image retrieval and data mining
  • multimedia analysis
  • visual question and answering
  • multimedia applications of pattern recognition
  • media analysis for augmented and virtual reality
  • multimodal fusion

Track 5: Image and Signal Processing

  • sensor array & multichannel signal processing
  • enhancement, restoration and filtering
  • segmentation, features and descriptors
  • coding, compression and super-resolution
  • automatic speech and speaker recognition
  • medical image and signal analysis
  • biological image and signal analysis
  • volumetric image analysis
  • brain-computer interfaces
