The 8th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS) is an annual event that follows ICPRS-16, a continuation of the successful Chilean Conference on Pattern Recognition that reached its 6th edition in 2014. In 2017 it is organised by two Madrid universities (UPM and UC3M) and is endorsed by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) and sponsored by the Chilean Association for Pattern Recognition (ACHiRP), the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA), the Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (AERFIA) and the Vision and Imaging Professional Network of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) who will publish its proceedings. Papers deemed to be of the required standard and presented at the conference, will be indexed by INSPEC and, through it, IEEE Xplore and Scopus (provided that at least one author registers and presents the work at the conference). All paper submissions will be submitted via Conftool to be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. Excellent papers will be encouraged to submit extended versions for consideration in JCR-indexed IET research journals (Computer Vision, Image Processing, Biometrics).

The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICRPS-17) aims to create an important networking forum in which participants can discuss the present and future of pattern recognition systems.

Its predecessors ICPRS-16, CWPR and CCPR, have traditionally been a meeting point of different disciplines (computer science, engineering, mathematics, etc.) and an opportunity for a wide range of researchers and practitioners to discuss the many different aspects of the application of pattern recognition technologies.
