International Conference on Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence

Following the success of the First ICPRAI in Montreal, Canada, and
Second International Conference on Pattern Recognition and Artificial
Intelligence (ICPRAI 2020) in Zhongshan, China, the 3rd ICPRAI (ICPRAI
2022) will be held in Paris, France, early June 2022.

Comprising a Main Conference, Special Sessions and Doctoral Consortium

Scope of the conference

The conference aims to bring together researchers, students and
practitioners of pattern recognition and artificial intelligence, to
present and discuss new advances. The main topics of interest are
gathered in four scientific tracks (but are not limited to):

    Pattern recognition : recognition of different types of patterns,
    feature extraction / selection and evaluation, structural /
    statistical approaches

    Computer vision : image processing / analysis, segmentation,
    object recognition, scene understanding

    Artificial intelligence : machine / deep learning, expert systems,
    system interpretability, knowledge representation, perception,
    semantic analysis, intelligent systems

    Big data : data visualization, volume / velocity / data variety,
    small sample size, supercomputing, cloud, data mining and
    performance evaluation

With applications related to: handwriting, document, text, language
processing, e-learning, image processing / analysis, bio-medical
imaging, remote sensing, image retrieval, 2D / 3D images and graphics,
audio / video, multimedia applications, security and forensic studies,
mobile applications, face, fingerprint, iris, brain, strategic objects
and targets, industrial applications of PRAI, innovation and
technology transfer, financial trends and analysis, traffic analysis
and smart transportation systems, robotics and autonomous vehicles ...

Key dates

Deadline for paper submission: December 15, 2021

Author notification: March 8, 2022

Deadline for proposal of special sessions: September 1, 2021

Acceptance of special sessions: September 15, 2021

Deadline for Special Session paper submissions : January 15, 2022

Doctoral Consortium application : March 14, 2022


The conference solicits papers covering any of these topics. Papers
will be 12 pages of content in the Springer LNCS style and should
report on novel, unpublished work.

The proceedings of the conference will be published as a Lecture Notes
in Computer Science (LNCS) proceedings volume.

Special Sessions

ICPRAI 2022 is seeking innovative, high-quality and potentially
interdisciplinary proposals for Special Sessions (SS) that complement
the regular program of the conference.

We consider two major opportunities:

    SS focused on theory of Pattern Recognition and Artificial
    Intelligence: proofs, new algorithms and models, …

    SS focused on application area, e.g. cultural heritage, medical
    applications, remote sensing, ...

5 papers for a Special Session are expected

Researchers willing to submit a proposal for a special session should
provide a proposition in a single pdf file. The submission file should
be prepared using the following template and should contain the
following information:

    A title for the Special Session and the names of the organizers;

    Brief biographies of the session organizer(s) and their contact

    Brief description of the theme and importance of the Session,
    number of submissions expected (1 page);

    Proposal of particular PC committee (name, country,
    institution/research lab);

    List of potential contributors and topics of interest.

Proposals should be sent directly by email to the Special Session
Chairs: and

Doctoral Consortium

The goal of the ICPRAI 2022 Doctoral Consortium is to create an
opportunity for Ph.D. students to test their research ideas, present
their current progress and future plans, and receive constructive
criticism and insights related to their future work and career
perspectives. A mentor (a senior researcher who is active in the
field) will be assigned to each student to provide individual
feedback. In addition, students will have the opportunity to present
an overview of their research plan during a special poster session.

Participation in the ICPRAI 2022 Doctoral Consortium will be limited
to 25 students. Prospective participants are encouraged to submit
their application by March 14th. The Doctoral Consortium Committee
will then review all applications received. Preference will be given
to students who are at a stage in their studies most likely to benefit
(i.e., they have identified a research direction and published some
initial results, but the thesis is not yet set in stone).

Participation to the Doctoral Consortium will be free for all accepted
students, i.e., there will be no extra registration fees!

The ICPRAI 2022 Doctoral Consortium will take place the day before the
main conference, i.e., on Tuesday, Mai 31.

Proposals should be sent directly by email to the Doctoral Consortium
