Aim of the Workshop:


Huge amounts of information in digital format is currently available; for example, the world-wide-web is an immense source of text, images, video, and sound. Structuring/understanding this multimedia information is a difficult task. Accessibility issues arise in this context, with personal identification techniques playing a key role in human-machine interfaces for security and restricted-access systems. Pattern recognition (PR) and machine learning (ML) provide formal frameworks in which this class of problems can be adequately addressed. On the other hand, exploratory analysis (mining) and content-based retrieval of multimedia data serve both as important practical application domains for PR and ML techniques, and as a source of challenging research problems. 

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners and potential users with interests in the multidisciplinary topics listed above.


Areas of Interest:


Paper submissions should be related to the following areas: pattern recognition, biometrics and personal identification; multimedia storage and retrieval; and data mining and machine learning. Focus on applications (industrial, medical, entertainment, home media) is desirable, although new techniques and algorithms are also highly encouraged.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


Format of the Workshop:


The workshop will comprise of invited talks and oral presentations. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the form of a book. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the Pattern Recognition Journal.


Submission of Papers:


Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for oral presentation in any of the areas listed above. Only full papers in English will be accepted, and the length of the paper should not exceed 10 pages (5,000 words). Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex format) are available HERE.

Postscript versions of the manuscript should be sent electronically to:  w1-secretariat ( at ) iceis.org


Important Dates:


Full Paper Submission: 5th February 2001

Author Notification: 15th March 2001

Final Camera-Ready Submission and Registration: 5th April 2001


Workshop Location:


The workshop will be held at the Escola Superior de Tecnologia of the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal. Setúbal is located at the south bank of Tagus river, about 50 km from Lisbon. The workshop will take place before the Third International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems - ICEIS 2001. For further information, see the conference web page site www.iceis.org
