The 17th Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition CIARP 2012 
September 3-6, 2012 -- Buenos Aires, Argentina
Paper submission Deadline: March 16, 2012

The 17th Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition CIARP 2012 will be
held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, September 3-6, 2012, and is organized by
the Argentine Society for Pattern Recognition (SARP).

This conference is a forum for the presentation of technological advances
and research results in the fields of theoretical and applied pattern
recognition, for the exchange of scientific results and experiences, and
for the growth of the co-operation between research groups.

This conference is supported by the following scientific associations:
International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), Cuban
Association for Pattern Recognition (ACPR), 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) and Argentine Association for
Pattern Recognition (SARP).

As in previous years, at the CIARP Conference about 200 contributions will
be presented. The program committee will evaluate papers for technical
quality, merit, novelty and clarity of presentation.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Applications of Pattern Recognition
• Artificial Intelligence Techniques in PR
• Bioinformatics
• Clustering
• Cognitive Humanoid Vision
• Computer Vision
• Data Mining
• DB, Knowledge Bases and Linguistic Tools
• Discrete Geometry
• Document Processing and Recognition
• Fuzzy and Hybrid Techniques in PR
• Image Coding, Processing and Analysis
• Kernel Machines
• Logical Combinatorial PR
• Mathematical Morphology
• Mathematical Theory of PR
• Medical Imaging
• Natural Language Processing and PR
• Neural Networks for PR
• Parallel and Distributed PR
• Pattern Recognition Principles
• Robotics & Remote Sensing Applications of PR
• Shape and Texture Analysis
• Signal Processing and Analysis
• Special Hardware Architectures
• Statistical Pattern Recognition
• Syntactical and Structural Pattern Recognition
• Video analysis
• Voice and Speech Recognition

Paper Submission:

Prospective authors are invited to contribute to the conference by
electronically submitting a full paper in English of no more than 8 pages
including illustrations, results and references.

They will be requested to submit their papers electronically through the
conference website before March 16th, 2012.

The accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of the CIARP'2012,
which will be published by Springer in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science - LNCS series.

The papers should be prepared following the instructions from Springer
LNCS series available at:

At least one of the authors must have registered for the paper to be

Currently, conversations are been held in order to publish selected papers
in an international journal.

Very important notice: IPOL Publication of Algorithms!!

The submitted papers can be complemented by a submission to the online
journal IPOL (Image Processing on Line, ISSN: 2105-1232). The evaluations
of the submissions to CIARP 2012 and to IPOL will be independent, but
coordinated. Only the algoritms corresponding to accepted papers at Ciarp2012 will be considered for publication in Ipol

To submit to Image Processing on Line, authors are requested to furnish a
very explicit and complete algorithm description in a .pdf document, and
to prepare an autonomous C or C++ code implementing this algorithm. 
Authors must also conceive how their algorithm will be demonstrated on
line, which may imply some restrictions on the input data and on the
execution time. The referees for IPOL are invited to check the full
adequacy of the code with its description, to achieve standards of
reproducible research.

For more details  please go to  to see some of the
published papers.
