Executive Committee

Uppsala April 15, 2012

The IAPR community is preparing for the 21st International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR), to be held in Tsukuba, Japan, on November 11-15, 2012. The ICPR conference series is IAPR’s main event. The IAPR Treasurer Aytül Erçil visited Tsukuba and the organizing committee earlier this year. See her travelogue in this issue. This year, ICPR has attracted more than 2000 (!) submissions of papers for the five tracks. Currently, the reviewing process is underway. The ExCo acknowledges the effort by the ICPR organizing committee, the members of the program committee, and all the reviewers. The Conference Program will be available in due time, as well as other news on the event, at the ICPR 2012 web site

There is a new initiative from the ExCo on Technical Committee activities. This initiative invites proposals for funding to support international summer schools. Please, find details on this later in this issue of the Newsletter and at

In this April edition of the IAPR Newsletter, we are "Getting to Know" Professor Stefano Levialdi, IAPR Fellow. In addition, we get a glimpse inside the IAPR Conferences and Meetings Committee, an update on the IAPR journal Pattern Recognition Letters, and an announcement of an exciting lecture series featuring distinguished talks by recipients of the K. S. Fu Prize at Notre Dame University. We can also read a number of conference and workshop reports and a book review.

I am looking forward to meeting old and new colleagues in Tsukuba in November. Please, plan to be there!
