Workshop on Image Mining. Theory and Applications Call for Papers


Workshop on Image Mining. Theory and Applications

Organized in conjunction with the 
26th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR 2022), 
Montreal, Quebec, Canada, August 21-25, 2022 

*** The workshop will be fully virtual ***

The Workshop "Image Mining. Theory and Applications" (IMTA VIII) is a
satellite event of ICPR 2022 that will be held in Montreal, Canada,
August 21-25, 2022. The main purpose of the IMTA VIII Workshop is to
provide the fusion of modern mathematical approaches and techniques
for image analysis/pattern recognition with the requests of
applications using an image as initial data representation.

Participants will enjoy the opportunity to discuss methodological
aspects and mathematical and computational techniques for automation
of image mining on the base of mathematical theory for pattern
recognition and image analysis. The workshop aims at discussing
artificial intelligence techniques, in particular, linguistic and
knowledge engineering tools for image mining and to estimate the
prospects of the algebraic approaches in representation of image
analysis knowledge. The interpretation of mathematical and linguistic
techniques will be illustrated by application problems, mainly from
biology and medicine, from automation of scientific research,
industrial applications and of many other domains generating
breakthrough and difficult application tasks.

We invite submission of papers describing work in the domains
suggested above or in closely-related areas. Papers should be
submitted in English via EasyChair:

Submitted papers should be at least 3 pages (page format - 1 column;
font - Times new Roman, font size - 12, 30 lines, 60 characters per
line (with spaces), 2 intervals). Maximum size of paper is not limited
but the recommended length is from 3 to 10 pages.

Accepted submissions will be presented either as oral or posters at
the workshop.


Workshop submission deadline: May 24th, 2022
Workshop author notification: May 31st, 2022
Camera-ready submission*: June 5th, 2022

The deadlines are strict and will not be extended.

* The texts of the accepted papers will be published as they were
submitted for review. So, we draw the author's attention to the fact
that all papers submitted in the period up to May 24 should be
prepared strictly in accordance with Author Guidelines. If absolutely
necessary, the authors could, after receiving the notification of
acceptance of the paper for publication, make the minimum necessary
changes to the text and submit the paper by June 5. However, this is
highly undesirable.
