AboutThe 14th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS) is an annual international event that follows ICPRS-23, ICPRS-22, 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 2024 it is organised by the University of Westminster (UK) and the Chilean Association for Pattern Recognition (ACHiRP, a member of the IAPR), planned to be endorsed by the IAPR and by four chapters of the IEEE UK+Ireland Section (tbc). As per previous years, papers deemed to be of the required standard AND presented at the conference, will be published by a reputable publisher (tba) and indexed. 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 (double-blind) by an international panel of experts.
The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS-24) aims to create an important networking forum in which participants can discuss the present and future of pattern recognition systems.
Its predecessors ICPRS-23, ICPRS-22, 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, machine learning, 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
14th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Systems (ICPRS) is an annual international event that follows ICPRS-23, ICPRS-22, 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 2024 it is organised by the University of Westminster (UK) and the Chilean Association for Pattern Recognition (ACHiRP, a member of the IAPR), expected to be endorsed by the IAPR and by four chapters of the IEEE UK+Ireland Section. As per previous years, papers deemed to be of the required standard AND presented at the conference, will be published by a reputable publisher (tba) and indexed. 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 (double-blind) by an international panel of experts.There will be a good set of keynote talks
We also welcome "Datasets Papers" that introduce a new public dataset and a baseline to encourage new lines of research.
This conference will be a 100% in-person event.
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.).
Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers papers describing novel and previously unpublished results on all aspects of Pattern Recognition Systems, from academia, industry, NGOs and others, to be selected for oral presentations or posters, on topics including, but not limited to:
- Artificial Intelligence Techniques in Pattern Recognition
- Bioinformatics Clustering
- Biometrics (including face recognition)

- It is stronglyrecommended to use Latex (e.g. Overleaf)
- Papers must be written in English.
- To submit a paper, please click here. If you have not yet done so, you will need to create an account (if you participated in ICPRS-23 you might already have an account). PLEASE NOTE that the special "Student Paper" category requires the first author to be a registered student at the time of submission, otherwise use the normal paper category.
- Please note that an accepted paper will only be sent to the publishers if at least one of its authors registers at a normal (not student) delegate fee
- Further details for submitting your paper will be given later in the year
A full set of speakers will be announced later in the year
The full programme will be announced once all the papers have been reviewed
All authors of accepted papers and all other attendees, will need to register on a system that will be announced later in the year.
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.
The fee structure will be announced later in the year.
The conference will take place in Central London, a city with excellent public transport and an extensive range of hotels. More details will be given later in the year.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will the event will be online?
No. We expect this to be a full in-peron event. 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
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.
Will all accepted papers be indexed in Scopus and others?
As in previous versions of the conference, we expect that the papers will be indexed in Scopus and others. 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.
