The First IAPR TC3 Workshop on Partially Supervised Learning provided a major forum for researchers in all areas of partially supervised learning. It was organized by the Insitute of Neural Information Processing at the University of Ulm and the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione (DII) at the University of Siena, and was sponsored by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

The workshop was organized in one track of oral presentations and posters. We received 23 contributions from 11 countries. Nine high-quality papers were selected for oral presentation and six for the poster session by the scientific committee. The review process was carried out by the scientific committee, and each paper was reviewed by three committee members.

During the two-day workshop, three excellent IAPR Invited Talks were given. Prof. Dr. Zhi-Hua Zhou (Nanjing University, China) presented his ideas on “Unlabeled Data and Multiple Views“ where he discussed ensemble methods with unlabeled and partially labeled data. “Online Semi-Supervised Ensemble Updates for fMRI Data“ was the title of Dr. Catrin O. Plumpton‘s(Bangor University, United Kingdom) invited speech. Here she discussed semi-ensemble learning techniques in large fMRI data bases. Dr. Stefan Scherer (Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland)  discussed partially supervised learning in human computer interaction scenarios in his talk entitled “How Partially Supervised Learning can faciliate and enhance user state analysis in naturalistic HCI“.

All accepted papers have been published in the Springer LNAI series volume 7081, edited by Dr Friedhelm Schwenker (University of Ulm) and Prof Dr Edmondo Trentin (University of Siena). In addition to the Workshop proceedings a special issue entitled “Partially Supervised learning in Pattern Recognition“  will be prepared for the journal Pattern Recognition Letters (submission deadline: June 30, 2012).

The TC3 steering committee decided that the 2nd Workshop on Partially Supervised Learning (PSL 2013) will be held in Nanjing (China) in May 2013 in conjunction with the Workshop on Multiple Classifier Systems (MCS 2013).
