Call for Papers (PDF)

DAGM GCPR is an international premier venue for recent advances in pattern recognition including image processing, machine learning, and computer vision and welcomes submissions from all areas of pattern recognition. Authors are invited to submit high-quality papers presenting original research. Submitted papers will be reviewed based on the criteria of originality, soundness, empirical evaluation, and presentation. Accepted papers will be published by Springer as a proceeding of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Image/video processing, analysis, and computer vision
  • Machine learning and pattern recognition
  • Mathematical foundations, statistical data analysis and models
  • Computational photography and confluence of vision and graphics
  • Biomedical image processing and analysis
  • Document analysis
  • Biometrics
  • Applications
