VISIUM 2016 - International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods

We invite everyone with interests in computer vision to attend the 4th VISion Understanding and Machine intelligence summer school, at ATMOSFERA M in Porto, Portugal. At visum you can find an expert multicultural environment, aiming to foster junior researchers’ awareness of computer vision topics, as well as to enhance all attendees’ knowledge regarding the state of the art, provided by leading international experts on the field. Being an area of great potential in industrial applications with a strong increase in the number of researchers in these last years, visum summer school will be an incredible opportunity.

In partnership with APRP, Visum will provide a grant that covers the registration for an APRP member. The grant will be given according to the relevance of the applicant’s CV.

ICAART 2016 - 8th International Joint Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence

The eigth edition of the International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence, ICAART 2016, will be held in Rome, Italy, 24-26 February, 2016.

The purpose of the International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the theory and applications in the areas of Agents and Artificial Intelligence. Two simultaneous related tracks will be held, covering both applications and current research work. One track focuses on Agents, Multi-Agent Systems and Software Platforms, Agile Management, Distributed Problem Solving and Distributed AI in general. The other track focuses mainly on Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Representation, Planning, Learning, Scheduling, Perception, Data Mining, Data Science, Reactive AI Systems, and Evolutionary Computing and other topics related to Intelligent Systems and Computational Intelligence.

ICPRAM 2016 - International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods

The fifth edition of the International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods, ICPRAM 2016, will be held in Rome, Italy, 24-26 February, 2016.

The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods would like to become a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners on the areas of Pattern Recognition, both from theoretical and application perspectives.
Contributions describing applications of Pattern Recognition techniques to real-world problems, interdisciplinary research, experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insights that advance Pattern Recognition methods are especially encouraged.

KDIR - 8th International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval

KDIR is part of IC3K, the International Joint Conference on Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management.

Knowledge Discovery is an interdisciplinary area focusing upon methodologies for identifying valid, novel, potentially useful and meaningful patterns from data, often based on underlying large data sets. A major aspect of Knowledge Discovery is data mining, i.e. applying data analysis and discovery algorithms that produce a particular enumeration of patterns (or models) over the data. Knowledge Discovery also includes the evaluation of patterns and identification of which add to knowledge.

Information retrieval (IR) is concerned with gathering relevant information from unstructured and semantically fuzzy data in texts and other media, searching for information within documents and for metadata about documents, as well as searching relational databases and the Web. Automation of information retrieval enables the reduction of what has been called "information overload".
Information retrieval can be combined with knowledge discovery to create software tools that empower users of decision support systems to better understand and use the knowledge underlying large data sets.

CIARP - Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition

Conference for the presentation of ongoing research in mathematical methods and computational techniques in pattern recognition in general: computer vision, image analysis, speech recognition, etc., as well as the applications of these techniques in areas related to robotics, industry, health, entertainment, space exploration, telecommunications, data mining, document analysis, natural language processing and recognition. Moreover, it has been always a forum for exchanging scientific research experience, sharing new knowledge, andincreasing cooperation between research groups in pattern recognition and related areas in our geographical zone.

This event  was organized by the Chilean Association for Pattern Recognition (AChiRP), and it was sponsored by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), Cuban Association for Pattern Recognition (ACRP) the Mexican Association for Computer Vision, Neural Computing and Robotics (MACVNR), the Special Interest Group on Pattern Recognition of the Brazilian Computer Society (SIGPR-SBC), the Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (AERFAI) and the Portuguese Association for Pattern Recognition (APRP).

Biomimaging - International Symposium in Applied Bioimaging

No seguimento da inauguração do Bioimaging Centre for Biomaterials and Regenerative Therapies do INEB foi lançado uma série de simpósio em Applied Bioimaging, em colaboração com o IBMC e o IPATIMUP.

O curso direcciona-se para participantes com interesse em aplicações de bioimaging, especialmente na área dos biomateriais, engenharia de tecidos e medicina regenerativa.

A participação equivale a 1.5 créditos ECTS (European Credit Transfer System).

A primeira e segunda edição do simpósio contaram com os tema: Bridging Development and Application e From Molecule to Man, respectivamente e tiveram a duração de dois dias, precedidos de um workshop experimental em bioimaging. As palestras têm um tom muito informal e os participantes são encorajados a trazerem questões que poderão contribuir para o avanço no conhecimento na àrea de Bioimagem aplocada e Biomateriais e Regenração através de uma abordagem interactiva.

A European Science Foundation, dentro do projecto REMEDIC, fornece apoio financeiro a estudantes universitários e post-docs para apresentarem o seu trabalho neste simpósio.

VISUM Summer School - VISion Understanding Machine intelligence summer school

visum 2014 is the second VISion Understanding and Machine intelligence (visum) Summer School that targets to gather at Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, Portugal, Ph.D. candidates, Post-Doctoral scholars and researchers from academia and industry with research interests in computer vision and machine intelligence.

After the tremendous success of the visum 2013 we decided to give continuity to this school.

Considering the existing gap between the most fundamental concepts of computer vision and their application in real world scenarios, the realisation of visum school seeks to bridge these two key domains. By creating an expert multicultural environment, visum school aims to foster junior researchers’ awareness of computer vision topics, as well as to enhance all attendees’ knowledge regarding the state of the art, provided by leading international experts on the field. Being an area of great potential in industrial applications with a strong increase in the number of researchers in these last years, visum school will be an incredible opportunity to be on the edge of knowledge.

visum will comprise three main tracks: fundamental, industrial and application topics, each one with extensive practical `hands-on’ sessions. A poster session will be organized especially dedicated, but not exclusive, to Ph.D. candidates. With this, researchers can discuss their current research works, possibly leading to significant breakthroughs in the development of their theses. In the industrial track, national and international renowned institutions will present their case studies and knowingness to the attendees. visum will have a track dedicated to applications with the aim to bridge the gap between the fundamental and industrial topics, each year with a different subject.

Target Audience
  • MSc. and Ph.D. candidates;
  • Post-Doctoral scholars and researchers;
  • Academic and industrial professionals with (research) interests in computer vision;
  • And, everyone who wants to have knowledge of topics avant-garde.
