ICPR 2020 - Call for Workshop Proposals

The ICPR 2020 Workshop Chairs invite proposals for the 25th
International Conference on Pattern Recognition. The workshops can be

immediately before and after the main conference. The workshops will

Vision, Image and Sound Analysis, Pattern Recognition and Artificial
Intelligence. They are expected to provide a forum for active exchange

Workshop papers will be included in the ICPR 2020 proceedings.
