X CIARP was organized by Cuban Association for Pattern Recognition (ACRP), the Institute of Cybernetics, Mathematics and Physics (ICIMAF) and the Advanced Technologies Application Center (CENATAV). It was co-sponsored by the Portuguese Association for Pattern Recognition (APRP), the Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (AERFAI), the Special Interest Group of the Brazilian Computer Society (SIGPR-SBC), and the Mexican Association for Computer Vision, Neurocomputing and Robotics (MACVNR).  XCIARP was endorsed by International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

We received contributions from 29 countries. More than 200 papers were submitted, out of which 107 were accepted for publication in the proceedings and for presentation at the conference. The accepted papers were published by Springer in the volume Progress in Pattern Recognition, Image Analysis, and Applications, LNCS 3773, edited by Alberto Sanfeliu and Manuel Lazo-Cortés, who chaired the Congress together with Sergio Cano.

Three professors were invited to give keynote addresses on topics in Pattern Recognition:  Prof. Josef Kittler, Surrey University, United Kingdom, presented a talk entitled “3D Assisted 2D Face Recognition: Methodology”; Prof. Alberto Del Bimbo, University of Florence, Italy, addressed the “Automatic Annotation of Sport Video Content”; and Dr. Eduardo Bayro Corrochano, Center of Research and Advanced Studies, Guadalajara, Mexico, talked about “Conformal Geometric Algebra for 3D Object Recognition and Visual Tracking Using Stereo and Omnidirectional Robot Vision”.  Four tutorials were offered by these invited speakers and by Prof. Marcia Ferreira from State University of Campinas, Sao Paolo, Brazil.

X CIARP in Havana, on par with its predecessors, drew together high quality contributions, inspiring invited talks, and exciting discussions through participating groups, arranged in a flawless programme. It has been a valuable experience for the participants, and maintained the reputation of the Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition series as a highly recommended event to participate in, especially for the Iberoamerican researcher community.

The 11th Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition will be held in Cancún, México, in November 2006.
