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.
Wednesday to Friday

Call For Papers
We also welcome "Datasets Papers" that introduce a new public dataset and a baseline to encourage new research.
An innovative aspect of this conference is that it will be hybrid to allow as many authors, invited speakers and delegates to attend either physically or through a webinar system.
Another innovation is that 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 reviewswill 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.).

ProgrammeProgramme details will be announced once the selection of accepted papers has been concluded. There will be a good set of keynote talks. This conference will be a hybrid event so that authors, invited speakers and delegates may attend through a webminar system. There is also a special “Student Paper” category for papers whose main author is a registered student at the time of submission.
All authors of accepted papers and all other attendees, will need to register on the Eventbrite system, which will be available later in the year (please note that the system charges a small fee). 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 Paypal and all major credit cards. Please contact the conference Registration Chair for any issues with registration and also to get the details you need to do a transfer by Western Union, if you are unable to use EventBrite.
The fee structure is expected to be similar to that of ICPRS-21 , more details will be announced later in the year

Frequently Asked Questions
Will the event will be online?
The conference will be hybrid. Although we recognise the value of face-to-face contact and networking, people who prefer to or have less means may attend virtually. We invite researchers worldwide to submit their novel articles.
Is there any facility for students to submit articles?
Students are encouraged to submit papers. There is a special discount for student authors. 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?
The conference will be hybrid so people who are able to attend physically will be welcome. 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?
No. Each author pays a single registration fee, irrespective of the number of papers s/he has accepted. Nevertheless, as it is normally the case, each author of a given paper pays a separate fee.
Do you have information about registration for remote speakers?
Everyone attending the conference, either virtually or physically, needs to register. Authors pay a small fee (student authors pay an even smaller fee). In fact there is no distinction in fees between remote (virtual) and physical speakers/attendees. 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 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.
The conference will be held at MINES Saint-Étienne (France) where we will also organise (tbc) a social event. Delegates who prefer to attend virtually may do so
