DAGM German Conference on Pattern Recognition Call for Papers

The German Conference on Pattern Recognition (DAGM GCPR) 2020 is the
42nd annual symposium of the German Association for Pattern
Recognition (DAGM, www.dagm.de). The DAGM GCPR conference 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
with oral and poster sessions will provide ample opportunity for
open-minded discussions and interaction.  The conference will also
include Invited Talks by both established and young principal
investigators and a Young Researchers Forum.  

DAGM GCPR 2020 will take
place from September 28 to October 1 at the University of Tübingen,
Germany. DAGM GCPR 2020 will be held together with VMV, the
International Symposium on Vision, Modeling, and Visualization, and
VCBM, the EG Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and
Medicine. Given the COVID-19 situation it is unclear yet if the
conference will take place in a physical format. We will turn to a
virtual format if needed. We encourage authors to submit work to DAGM
GCPR even if they do not think they will be able or willing to attend
in person due to the virus situation and/or potential travel
restrictions.

Scope:
* Image/video processing, analysis, and computer vision
* Machine learning and pattern recognition
