The Third International Workshop on
Pattern Recognition in Information Systems – PRIS 2003
April 22-23, 2003 – Angers, France
First Announcement and Call for Papers
In conjunction with the Fifth International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems - ICEIS 2003 (http://www.iceis.org/)
Workshop Background and Goals
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 and 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. Also, in everyday situations these techniques can be useful. 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 (data 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 include, but are not limited to
- Document analysis and
- Classification algorithms
- Biometrics and personal
Format of the Workshop
The workshop will be a two days, single track, conference with oral presentations and invited talks.
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 (5000 words). Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex formats) are available in the ICEIS web page. Postscript/RTF versions of the manuscript should be submitted thru ICEIS web-based paper submission procedure.
Full paper submission: December 15, 2002 (E-mail: w1-secretariat ( at ) iceis.org)
