Scope:

The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and
Methods would like to become a major point of contact between
researchers, engineers and practitioners on the areas of Pattern
Recognition, both from theoretical and application perspectives.

Contributions describing applications of Pattern Recognition
techniques to real-world problems, interdisciplinary research,
experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insights that
advance Pattern Recognition methods are especially encouraged.


ICPRAM 2017 will be held in conjunction with ICORES 2017 and ICAART
2017.

Registration to ICPRAM allows free access to the ICORES and ICAART
conferences (as a non-speaker).
