Workshop on Pattern Analysis and Recognition (PAR’2010) CALL FOR PAPERS As part of The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2010) In conjunction with The 6th International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2010) June 28 – July 2, 2010 Le CENTRE DE CONGRΘS de CAEN Caen, Normandy, France Submission Deadline: February 15, 2010 SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES The Workshop on Pattern Analysis and Recognition aims to bring together researchers in the fields of Pattern Recognition. The workshop will address recent advances in theory, methodologies and applications. It is meant to promote the discussion and presentation of new research and development in the area of pattern recognition and applications. We encourage original contributions from works on the following areas and other related topics: * Feature Selection and Extraction Ÿ Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition * Classification Ÿ Fuzzy Methods for Pattern Recognition * Clustering Ÿ Syntactical Methods * Multi-classifiers Ÿ Statistical Methods * Descriptors Ÿ Structural Methods * Segmentation Ÿ Logical and Combinatorial Methods * Filtering Ÿ Hybrid Methods * Object Recognition Ÿ Computer Vision * Face Recognition Ÿ Image Understanding * Character, Graphical and Text Recognition Ÿ Image Compression and Coding * Matching & Verification Ÿ Image Description and Recognition * Multimedia Processing Ÿ Applications PAPER SUBMISSION You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to pattern analysis and recognition. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column IEEE formatted pages, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 350 words. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.
