The 7th International Workshop on
Pattern Recognition in Information Systems
(PRIS 2007)
12-13 June, 2007 - Funchal, Madeira - Portugal

Workshop Program

In conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS 2007)

Ana Fred
IT-IST - Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal

Anil K. Jain

Michigan State University, USA

Invited Speakers
- Joachim Buhmann, Switzerland
Talk title: Visual Recognition and Proteomics: How can we learn complex models?

- Mário Figueiredo, Portugal
Talk title: Semi-supervised Classification and Clustering

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, images, video, and sound. Organizing and understanding this multimedia information is a difficult task. Accessibility issues arise in this context, with personal identification techniques playing a key role in human-machine interfaces for security and restricted-access systems. Pattern recognition (PR) and machine learning (ML) provide formal frameworks in which this class of problems can be adequately addressed. On the other hand, exploratory analysis (mining) and content-based retrieval of multimedia data serve both as important practical application domains for PR and ML techniques and as a source of challenging research problems.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners and potential users with interests in the multidisciplinary topics listed above

Topics of interest
Paper submissions should be related to the following areas: pattern recognition, multimedia storage and retrieval, data mining and machine learning. Focus on applications (industrial, medical, entertainment, security, bioinformatics, home media) is desirable, although new techniques and algorithms are also highly encouraged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Data mining
• Object Recognition
• Electronic surveillance
• Multimedia information systems
• Content-Based Retrieval
• Document analysis and classification
• Multimedia Data categorization
• Biometrics and personal authentication systems
• Classification and clustering
• Dimensionality reduction
• Databases and web-based information systems
• Efficient and scalable learning
• User profile modelling
• Quality assessment and performance measurement

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). 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.
