The Objective: Some of the important concepts of pattern recognition are being redefined with the advancement of computational intelligence techniques. The pattern recognition community is active in integrating this advancement and in converting it to suitable tools tailor made for challenging applications. To recognize these achievements and to provide a platform for researchers to deliberate and exchange ideas on advances in pattern recognition, the Electronics and Communication Sciences Unit of the Indian Statistical Institute will be organizing the 5th ICAPR.

Format: A number of oral paper presentation sessions in areas of, but not limited to approximate reasoning, artificial intelligence, atmospheric modeling, bioinformatics, computer vision, digital signal processing, evolutionary computing, fractals and chaos, fuzzy systems, neuro-computing, hybrid computational intelligence systems, image processing, mathematical morphology will be organized under four major conference tracks:    

    (i)    Computational Intelligence    

    (ii)   Image and Signal Processing

    (iii)  Pattern Recognition

    (iv)  Remote Sensing and Atmospheric Science

All accepted papers would be published in the conference proceedings, which will be made available during the conference.

Special Issues: We plan to bring out a few special issues of some international journals based on enhanced versions of some of the selected papers.
