The 4th Mexican Conference on Pattern Recognition (MCPR2012) was held at the hotel Las Brisas in Huatulco, Mexico. The conference was organized by the Computer Science Department of the National Institute for Astrophysics Optics and Electronics (INAOE). MCPR2012 was sponsored by the Mexican Association for Computer Vision, Neural Computing and Robotics (MACVNR) and the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

MCPR2012 received contributions from 18 countries. In total 64 papers were submitted, out of which 32 were accepted for publication in these proceedings and for presentation at the conference. The review process was carried out by the Scientific Committee, composed of internationally recognized scientists, all experts in their respective fields, who prepared an excellent selection.

The 32 accepted papers were published by Springer Verlag in the volume Pattern Recognition, LNCS 7329, edited by Jesús Ariel Carrasco-Ochoa, José Francisco Martínez-Trinidad, José Arturo Olvera-López, and Kim L. Boyer.

Three professors were invited to give keynote addresses and tutorials on topics in Pattern Recognition: Prof. Gabriella Sanniti di Baja (IAPR invited speaker), Director of Research, Institute of Cybernetics “E. Caianiello” (CNR), Italy; Professor Sven Dickinson, head of the Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto, Canada; and Professor Humberto Sossa, form the Center for Computing Research, National Polytechnic Institute, Mexico.

During the event, meals took place at the hotel Las Brisas in Huatulco. The conference finished with a dinner at a secret beach at sunset.

The conference was organized in one track for oral presentations. We are sure that MCPR 2012 provided a fruitful forum that helped to enrich the collaboration between the Mexican Pattern Recognition researchers and the broader international Pattern Recognition community.

The steering committee for the MCPR decided the 5th Mexican Conference on Pattern Recognition will be held in Queretaro, Mexico, in the last week of June 2013.
