German Conference on Pattern Recognition and International Symposium on Vision, Modeling and Visualization Call for Papers

Announcement and Call for Papers

    40th German Conference on Pattern Recognition (GCPR 2018)

    Stuttgart, Germany, October 9-12, 2018
    Paper Submission Deadline: July 4, 2018

GCPR 2018 is the 40th annual symposium of the German Association for
Pattern Recognition (DAGM, This time, the conference is 
jointly organized with the VMV 2018, the 27th International Symposium 
on Vision, Modeling and Visualization. 

The GCPR addresses recent advances in theory, methodology, and
applications of pattern recognition, machine learning and computer vision.
Authors are invited to submit high-quality papers presenting original
research. Submitted papers will be reviewed based on the criteria of
originality, soundness, empirical evaluation, and presentation.
In the long tradition of this conference series, the single track program 
and poster sessions will provide ample opportunity for open-minded 
discussions and interaction. The conference will also include 
tutorials, workshops, and a Young Researchers Forum.

The scope of GCPR 2018 includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
* Image/video processing, analysis, and computer vision
* Machine learning and pattern recognition
* Mathematical foundations, statistical data analysis and models
* Computational photography and confluence of vision and graphics
* Biomedical image processing and analysis
* Document analysis
* Biometrics
* Applications

Particularly, we also encourage submissions in the following
vision-related fields that will have special track chairs to handle
the corresponding submissions

* Computer vision systems and applications
* Pattern recognition in the life- and natural sciences
* Photogrammetry and remote sensing

The paper length is limited to 10 pages (LNCS style) plus references, 
which are expected to be at most 2 pages in usual cases. In addition, 
supplementary materials can be submitted. All manuscripts will be subject 
to a double-blind review process.  The conference proceedings will be
published in the Springer LNCS series. The best contributions will
receive GCPR awards.

Invited speakers:
- Michael Cohen, Director of Facebook Research, University of Washington
- Raquel Urtasun, Head of Uber AGT, University of Toronto
- Metin Sitti, Director of MPI for Intelligent Systems, Carnegie Mellon University
- a fourth invited speaker will be announced soon
