Dear "PlanetKR" members,

My name is Pedro Latorre Carmona, program co-chair of the 2012  
"International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and  
Methods" (ICPRAM 2012). Please find below the Call for Papers that I  
hope you will find interesting.

Please take into account that regular paper submission deadline has  
been extended to September 8, 2011.

I would also like to draw your attention to the six Special Sessions  
that are organised for this conference. These sessions have a  
different submission deadline to the deadline of the regular paper  

I hope to see you in Algarve, Portugal in 2012!.

                             CALL FOR PAPERS

       2012 International Conference on Pattern Recognition
                 Applications and Methods (ICPRAM2012)

                           February 6-8, 2012
                     Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal

ICPRAM (1st International Conference on Pattern Recognition  
Applications and Methods - http://www.icpram.org/) has an open call  
for papers, whose deadline is set for September 8, 2011. We hope you  
can participate in this conference by submitting a paper reflecting  
your current research in any of the following tracks:

- Theory and Methods
- Applications

ICPRAM 2012 will be held in Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal next year, on  
February 6-8, 2012.

The conference will be sponsored by the Institute for Systems and  
Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) in  
cooperation with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial  
Intelligence (AAAI) and Pattern Analysis, Statistical Modelling and  
Computational Learning (PASCAL2), and technically co-sponsored by IEEE  
Signal Processing Society, Machine Learning for Signal Processing  
(MLSP) Technical Committee of IEEE, AERFAI (Asociación Espanola de  
Reconocimiento de Formas y Analisis de Imagenes) and APRP (Associacao  
Portuguesa de Reconhecimento de Padroes). INSTICC is member of the  
Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC).

ICPRAM would like to become a major point of contact between  
researchers, engineers and practitioners on the areas of Pattern  
Recognition, both from theoretical and application perspectives.

Contributions describing applications of Pattern Recognition  
techniques to real-world problems, interdisciplinary research,  
experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insights that  
advance Pattern Recognition methods are especially encouraged.

The conference program features a number of Keynote Lectures to be  
delivered by distinguished world-class researchers, including those  
listed below.

The proceedings of ICPRAM will be submitted for indexation by Thomson  
Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and  
Elsevier Index (EI).

All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the  
conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on  
CD-ROM support.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and  
extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag  
in a AISC Series book.

Top selected papers in specific areas of interest will be published as  
a special issue in the Neurocomputing Journal.

Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing  
session. Please check the website for further information  

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the  
SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/).
SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).

We also would like to highlight the possibility to submit to the  
following Special Sessions:

- Algebraic Geometry in Machine Learning

- Shape Analysis and Deformable Modeling

- Machine Learning for Sequences

- Pattern Recognition Applications in Remotely Sensed Hyperspectral  
Image Analysis

- High-Dimensional Inference from Limited Data: Sparsity, Parsimony  
and Adaptivity

- Interactive and Adaptive Techniques for Machine Learning,  
Recognition and Perception

Workshops and further special sessions are also invited, with the  
condition that the topics do not overlap with the existing ones. If  
you wish to propose a workshop or a special session, for example based  
on the results of a specific research project, please contact the  
secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit  
from logistics support and other types of support, including  
secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a  
valid idea.

ICPRAM 2012 will be held in conjunction with ICAART 2012  
(http://www.icaart.org/home.asp) and ICORES (http://www.icores.org) in  
Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal next year, on February 6-8, 2012.  
Registration to ICPRAM will enable free access to the ICAART and  
ICORES conferences (as a non-speaker).
