The 12th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS) is an annual event that follows ICPRS-21, ICPRS-19, ICPRS-18, ICPRS-17 and ICPRS-16, a continuation of the successful Chilean Conference on Pattern Recognition that reached its 6th edition in 2014. In 2022 it is organised by the École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Étienne (France) and the Chilean Association for Pattern Recognition (ACHiRP, a member of the IAPR), endorsed by the IAPR (International Association for Pattern Recognition) and sponsored by IEEE France, IEEE France SP Chapter, IEEE Chile CIS Chapter and the IET's Vision and Imaging Technical Network. As in previous years, papers deemed to be of the required standard AND presented at the conference, will be normally indexed in IEEE Xplore. Please note that the publishers might reject papers which are too similar to previous publications, even if the work is presented at the conference. All paper submissions need to be submitted via Conftool to be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. Excellent papers will be encouraged to submit extended versions for consideration in a JCR-indexed journal (tba).
The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS-22) aims to create an important networking forum in which participants can discuss the present and future of pattern recognition systems.
Its predecessors ICPRS-21, ICPRS-19, ICPRS-18, ICPRS-17, ICPRS-16, CWPR and CCPR, have traditionally been a meeting point of different disciplines (computer science, engineering, mathematics, etc.) and an opportunity for a wide range of researchers and practitioners to discuss the many different aspects of the application of pattern recognition technologies.

Call For Papers
We also welcome "Datasets Papers" that introduce a new public dataset and a baseline to encourage new research.
This conference will be ONLY online to allow as many authors, invited speakers and delegates to participate from any part of the world.
There will be a special category of "Student Papers", where the first author must be a student (undergraduate or postgraduate). There will be a special prize for best student paper.
All paper submissions will be submitted on-line to be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. Please note that all papers will be checked by a plagiarism detecting software so that papers that exceed a threshold of coincidence will not be passed on for reviews.
Also please note that reviews will be double-blind so please do not include author names and affiliations in your paper (also do not cite your previous work as "in our previous paper [x]", etc.).

ProgrammeYou can download a PDF version of the Programme. Please note that this programme is subject to minor changes, so please double check just before the conference starts.
Details on how to connect to this on-line conference will be sent to delegates at a later stage. Authors please make sure that we have a copy of your video presentation (max. 18 mins) and of your slides, as instructed in a recent email, by the 30th May 2022
All authors of accepted papers and all other attendees, will need to register on the EventBrite system (please note that there is an extra charge by EventBrite of about 10%). The Eventbrite system that we use should be able to give you a receipt and an invoice (provided that you also enter your organisation's details). NOTE: We expect that the system will accept payments via all major credit cards. Please contact the conference Registration Chair for any issues with registration.
For an accepted paper to be presented and published, it needs to be associated to an "Author Full Fee" registration (and not to a Student or an Other registration). If only a student author is attending the conference and presenting their paper, then they need to pay an "Author full fee" (and not the student fee). We have to operate like this to cover conference and publishing costs. Also, if one of the authors registers as "Author Full Fee", additional authors of the same paper who also want to attend the conference only need to pay a lower fee e.g. as Student or Other, as appropriate to their status. Following IAPR policy, each author full fee registration will cover the presentation of up to three papers by the registered person who also needs to be a co-author of those papers. Presentation of additional papers beyond those three, by the same conference delegate will require the payment of an additional full author fee. In all cases there are reductions for members of the sponsoring organisations.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will the event will be ONLY online?
Yes, given the current uncertainty with travel. Although we recognise the value of face-to-face contact and networking, an online conference allows many people (specially students and young researchers) to participate who otherwise would have been unable to. We invite researchers worldwide to submit their novel articles.
Is there any facility for students to submit articles?
Students are encouraged to submit papers. If they are the first author they can be submitted as "Student Papers" and would be considered for a special prize. For details about the registration fees, please check the Registration section
Will the conference be virtual, so a remote speaker can, not only present a paper but also watch the rest of the presentations?
Yes. Authors can present virtually and also attend (virtually) all other presentations and tutorials.
Do I have to pay extra if I have more than one paper accepted?
Please refer to the Registration section for the detailed fee conditions.
Do you have information about registration for remote speakers?
As an online event, everyone attending the conference. The delegate fees , which we have kept as small as possible, help us cover the costs of publication, indexing and organisation. Please see the Registration section for details.
Will all accepted papers be indexed in IEEE Xplore and others?
As in previous versions of the conference, we expect that the papers will be indexed in Scopus and IEEXplore. Please note that only papers that are accepted AND presented AND associated to a delegate fee, will be sent to the publisher. It is very important that the papers are in the correct format and have been proof-read by a competent English speaker, as the publisher may reject poorly written papers or those that overlap significantly with previously published work.
Does a paper discussing the application of pattern recognition in the manufacturing industry (as a black-box, and not so much about which specific methods) fit your conference?
Yes! We welcome papers describing real-world applications of pattern recognition systems.
