11th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
PATTERN RECOGNITION SYSTEMS

17-19 March 2021, Universidad de Talca, Curicó - Chile

About The Event

About

The 11th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS) is an annual event that follows ICPRS-19, ICPRS-18, ICPRS-17 and ICPRS-16, a continuation of the successful Chilean Conference on Pattern Recognition that reached its 6th edition in 2014. In 2021 it is organised by the Universidad de Talca (Chile) and the Chilean Association for Pattern Recognition (ACHiRP, a member of the IAPR), expected to be endorsed by the IAPR (tbc) and sponsored by the Vision and Imaging Professional Network of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). As in previous years, papers will be published in electronic proceedings. Papers deemed to be of the required standard AND presented at the conference, will be normally indexed in IEEE Xplore and Scopus. All paper submissions need to be submitted via Conftool to be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts.

The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS-21) aims to create an important networking forum in which participants can discuss the present and future of pattern recognition systems.

Its predecessors ICPRS-19, ICPRS-18, ICPRS-17, 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.

Call For Papers

The 11th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS-21) is an annual event that followsICPRS-19, ICPRS-18, ICPRS-17 and ICPRS-16, a continuation of the successful Chilean Conference on Pattern Recognition that reached its 6th edition in 2014. In 2021 it is organised by the Universidad de Talca (Chile) and the Chilean Association for Pattern Recognition (ACHiRP, a member of the IAPR) and it is expected to be endorsed by the IAPR (tbc) and sponsored by the Vision and Imaging Professional Network of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). As in previous years, papers will be published in electronic proceedings. Papers deemed to be of the required standard AND presented at the conference, will be normally indexed in IEEE Xplore and Scopus. All paper submissions need to 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 a JCR-indexed journal (tba). There will be a good set of keynote talks.

An innovative aspect of this conference is that it will be ​mainly virtual​ so that authors, invited speakers and delegates will be able to attend through a webinar system.

Another innovations is that there will be a special category of "Student Papers", where the first author must be a student (undergraduate or postgraduate). There will be a special prize for best student paper.

All paper submissions will be submitted on-line to be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. Please notice that all papers will be checked by a plagiarism detecting software so that papers that exceed a threshold of coincidence will not be passed on for reviews.

There is an A4 pdf version of the conference call for papers as well as an A3 size version and an A2 size version, suitable for printing and displaying on announcement boards! :-)

To submit a paper, please click here. If you have not yet done so, you will need to create an account (if you participated in ICPRS-19 you might already have an account). PLEASE NOTE that this year there is a special "Student Paper" category that requires the first author to be a registered student at the time of submission, otherwise use the normal paper category.

There will be delegate fee discounts for authors, students and members of the sponsoring organisations.

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers papers describing novel and previously unpublished results on all aspects of Pattern Recognition Systems, from academia, industry, NGOs and others, to be selected for oral presentations or posters, on topics including, but not limited to:
  • Artificial Intelligence Techniques in Pattern Recognition
  • Bioinformatics Clustering
