MCPR2011 was held at the hotel Cancun Caribe Park Royal Grand in Cancun, Mexico. The conference was organized by the Computer Science Department of the INAOE and the Cancun Technological Institute. MCPR2011 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 17 countries. In total 69 papers were submitted, out of which 37 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 37 accepted papers were published by Springer Verlag in the volume Pattern Recognition, LNCS 6718, edited by José Francisco Martínez-Trinidad, Jesús Ariel Carrasco-Ochoa, Cherif Ben-Youssef Brants, and Edwin Hancock.

Three professors were invited to give keynote addresses and tutorials on topics in Pattern Recognition: Prof. Kim Boyer (IAPR invited speaker), Head of the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer, USA; Prof. Joachim M. Buhmann, Department of Computer Science, Institute of Computational Science, ETH Zurich, Switzerland; and Prof. Carlos Coello Coello, Department of Computer Science, CINVESTAV-IPN, Mexico.

During the event, meals took place at the hotel Cancun Caribe Park Royal Grand in Cancun. The conference finished with a dinner where a violinist played classical music.

The conference was organized in one track for oral presentations. We consider that MCPR2011 served as a forum for scientific research exchange and to provide a fruitful forum to enrich the collaboration among the Mexican Pattern Recognition researchers and the broader international Pattern Recognition community.

The MCPR steering committee decided that the 4th Mexican Conference on Pattern Recognition will be held in Huatulco, Mexico, in the last week of June 2012.
