Call for Papers --------------------- Workshop on Applications of Pattern Analysis 1 - 2 September 2010, Cumberland Lodge (Windsor, UK) Submission deadlines: may 9th for abstract; may 16th for full paper. DESCRIPTION Pattern Analysis and Statistical Learning cover a wide range of technologies and theoretical frameworks, and significant activity in the past years has resulted in a remarkable convergence and many advances in the theory and principles underlying the field. Bringing these technologies to real world demanding applications is however often treated as a separate problem, one that does not directly affect the field as a whole. It is instead important to consider the field of Pattern Analysis as fully including all issues involved with the applications of this technology, and hence all issues that arise when deploying, scaling, implementing and using the technology. We call for contributions in the form of Demo papers, Case Studies, Working Systems, Real World Applications and Usage Scenarios. Challenges may stem from the violation of common theoretical assumptions, from the specific types of patterns and noise arising in certain scenarios, or from the problem of scaling up the implementation of state of the art algorithms to real world sizes, or from the creation of integrated software systems that contain multiple pattern-analysis components. We are also interested in new application areas, where Pattern Analysis has been deployed with success, and in issues involving the visualisation and delivery and exploitation of the patterns discovered by PA technologies. Systems working in noisy and unstructured environments and situations are particularly interesting. SUBMISSION PROCEDURE We welcome papers (and possibly also related demos) in all of the areas described above. Papers should be max 7 pages long, in PDF, using the provided style file, describing a working system that makes use of Pattern Analysis technology and for which interesing challenges were encountered and overcome during its deployment, or an application that has benefited another field of research. Papers describing software and web demos are welcome, as are case studies. Submissions should be sent by email to Abstracts are due on may 9th, and full papers on may 16th, 2010.
