MCPR2010 was held at the National Institute for Astrophysics Optics and Electronics in Puebla, Mexico. The conference was organized by the Computer Science Department of the INAOE, and it was sponsored by the Mexican Association for Computer Vision, Neural Computing and Robotics (MACVNR) and the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

We received contributions from 20 countries. In total 89 papers were submitted, out of which 39 were accepted for publication in the proceedings and for presentation at the conference. The review process was carried out by the Scientific Committee, each paper being assessed by three reviewers who prepared an excellent selection dealing with ongoing research.

The 39 accepted papers were published by Springer Verlag in the volume Advances in Pattern Recognition, LNCS 6256, edited by Jesús Ariel Carrasco-Ochoa, José Francisco Martínez-Trinidad, and Josef Kittler.

Three professors were invited to give keynote addresses on topics in Pattern Recognition.  The IAPR Invited Speaker was Professor Edwin Hancock, IAPR Fellow, University of York, United Kingdom, who presented a talk entitled “Graph-based methods in pattern recognition”. Professor Guozhu Dong, Wright State University, USA, gave a speech about Emerging/Contrast pattern based clustering and clustering quality evaluation. And, Dr. Ernesto Bribiesca, IIMAS-UNAM, Mexico, talked about “3D chain codes for representing objects”.

The welcome refreshment for attendees was offered in the hotel San Leonardo at Puebla’s historic center (downtown). During the event, meals took place at the INAOE’s garden. The conference finished with a dinner where a quartet played classical music.

The conference was organized in one track for oral presentations and additionally, all the participants presented a poster. We consider that MCPR2010 served as a forum for scientific research exchange and establishing contacts that improve cooperation among national and international research groups in pattern recognition.

The MCPR steering committee decided the place where the next conference will be held. The 3rd Mexican Conference on Pattern Recognition will be held in Cancun, Mexico during the last week of June, 2011.
