CALL FOR PAPERS

The 8th Int. Workshop on "PATTERN RECOGNITION IN INFORMATION SYSTEMS"
(PRIS 2008), http://www.iceis.org/workshops/pris/pris2008-cfp.html

12-13 June, 2008 - Barcelona, Spain

In conjunction with the 10th International Conference on Enterprise
Information Systems (ICEIS 2008), http://www.iceis.org/

Co-Chairs
Gemma Sanchez-Albaladejo, Univ. Aut. de Barcelona (CVC), gemma at cvc.uab.es
Alfons Juan-Ciscar, Univ. Pol. de Valencia (DSIC/ITI), ajuan at dsic.upv.es

AIM OF THE WORKSHOP

Huge amounts of information in digital format are currently available;
for example, the  world-wide-web is an immense source  of text, audio,
images  and  video.   Organizing  and  understanding  this  multimodal
information is a difficult problem, which requires advanced techniques
from pattern recognition and  related fields such as machine learning,
computer  vision  and  human  language  technology.   An  increasingly
important  aspect  of  this  problem  is  human-computer  interaction,
especially  multi-modal  interactive   systems  in  which  humans  and
machines  seamlessly  cooperate  to  efficiently  solve  a given task.
On the  other hand, accessibility  issues also arise in  this problem,
with  personal  identification  techniques   playing  a  key  role  in
human-computer interfaces for  security and restricted-access systems.
The  aim   of  this  workshop   is  to  bring   together  researchers,
practitioners   and   potential    users   with   interests   in   the
multidisciplinary topics listed below.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
Paper submissions  should be related  to the following  areas: pattern
recognition,  machine  learning, computer  vision  and human  language
technology.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Text, audio, image and video processing
* Unsupervised learning and clustering
* Classification and browsing of multimodal data
* Indexing, structuring and summarization
* Human-computer interaction modelling
* Discourse and dialogue
* Machine translation
* Multimodal fusion
* Biometrics and personal authentication systems

FORMAT OF THE WORKSHOP
The  workshop will  comprise  of  invited talks  and  oral and  poster
presentations. The  proceedings of the  workshop will be  published in
the form of a book.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
Prospective authors are  invited to submit papers in  any of the areas
listed above. All papers must be written in English, and the length of
the paper should not exceed 5,000 words or 10 pages (including figures
and tables).  See http://www.iceis.org/paper_template.htm.  Papers (in
PDF format)  should be submitted online through  the online submission
system.

WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS
All accepted papers  will be published in a  workshop proceedings book
with an ISBN#, which will  be issued by INSTICC Press. The proceedings
will be available at the time of the workshop.
