Call for papers

Dear colleagues, On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we have the pleasure to invite you to submit your contributions to the 24th Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition (CIARP 2019). The conference will be held in the Hotel Nacional, in Havana, Cuba from October 28th–31st 2019, in the context of the 500 anniversary of the foundation of the Havana City and is organized by the Universidad de las Ciencias Informáticas (UCI), and the Cuban Association for Pattern Recognition (ACRP), which is affiliated to the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

Proceedings will be published by Springer as Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Two conference awards will be given: the CIARP-IAPR Best Paper Award and the Medal Aurora Pons-Porrata, these two awards will be published as Special Section in the Pattern Recognition Letters journal. Also, authors of the 20-25 best papers, within the aims and scope of the journals, will be invited to prepare an extended version for a Special Issue in the Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA) journal (http://www.iospress.nl/journal/intelligent-data-analysis), with the Guest Editors A. Fazel Famili and José E. Medina Pagola and for a Special Issue in the Pattern Analysis and Applications (PAAA) journal ( https://link.springer.com/journal/10044 ), with the Guest Editor José Ruiz Shulcloper.

Additionally, we will have 4 TUTORIALS, given by Ingela Nyström, Petra Perner, Alberto Del Bimbo, and Massimo Tistarelli and also 4 INVITED KEYNOTE LECTURE by Petra Perner, Alberto Del Bimbo, Massimo Tistarelli and Jean-François Bonastre will complete the program.

CIARP-2019 is a series of annual international conferences devoted to all aspects of pattern recognition, computer vision, artificial intelligence, data mining and related fields. This conference will be a forum for the exchange of scientific results and experiences, as well as the sharing of new knowledge, and the increasing of the co-operation between research groups in pattern recognition and related areas.

This conference is supported by several scientific associations, including: International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), Mexican Association for Computer Vision, Neural Computing and Robotics (MACVNR), Portuguese Association for Pattern Recognition (APRP), Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (AERFAI), Special Interest Group on Pattern Recognition of the Brazilian Computer Society (SIGPR-SBC), Chilean Association for Pattern Recognition (AChiRP), Argentine Society for Pattern Recognition (SARP-SADIO), Uruguayan Association for Pattern Recognition (APRU), and the Peruvian Association for Pattern Recognition (APeRP).
