The TC3 "Neural Networks & Computational Intelligence" is one of the 20 technical committees of the International Association on Pattern Recognition (IAPR). The scope of this TC is on all kinds of Computational Intelligence approaches, including artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computing, with focus on pattern recognition applications.

ANNPR 2010 follows the success of ANNPR 2003 (Florence), ANNPR 2006 (Ulm), and ANNPR 2008 (Paris). This 4th ANNPR workshop will act as a major forum for international researchers and practitioners working in all areas of neural network based pattern recognition to present and discuss the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.

Papers are solicited dealing with neural networks and pattern recognition which emphasize methodological issues arising in applications.

They should be related but not limited to the following topics.

Methodological issues:

Applications in Pattern Recognition

Paper submission:

Potential participants should submit a paper describing their work in one of the areas described above. Proceedings will be published as a volume in the Springer LNAI, maximum paper length is 12 pages in LNCS/LNAI format. Instructions for authors, LaTeX templates,etc are available at the (Springer LNCS/LNAI website). Submission of a paper constitutes a commitment that, if accepted, one or more authors will attend the workshop. Electronic submission in camera-ready format is required.

Please submit papers to the ANNPR chairs (F. Schwenker and N. El Gayar)
