The Fourth IASTED International Conference on
Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition, and Applications
~SPPRA 2007~

February 14–16, 2007
Innsbruck, Austria


The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)

* Technical Committee on Signal Processing
* Technical Committee on Pattern Recognition


This conference is an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of, signal processing and pattern recognition. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer reviewed by at least two different reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

SPPRA 2007 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conference on:
Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AIA 2007)
Parallel and Distributed Computing and Networks (PDCN 2007)
Software Engineering (SE 2007)
Biomedical Engineering (BIOMED 2007)
Computer Graphics and Imaging (CGIM 2007)
Modelling, Identification, and Control (MIC 2007)

Innsbruck is nestled in the valley of the Inn River and tucked between the Austrian Alps and the Tuxer mountain range. It has twice hosted the Winter Olympics and is surrounded by the eight ski regions of the Olympic Ski World, including the Stubai Glacier, which offers skiing year-round. Climbing the 14th century Stadtturm on Herzog Friedrich Strasse provides a stunning view of the town and the breathtaking scenery that surrounds it. Concerts at Ambras Castle provide listening pleasure in a beautiful renaissance setting. The sturdy medieval houses and sidewalk cafés of Old Town Innsbruck beckon you to sit for a while and watch people stroll by.

With its unique blend of historical, intellectual, and recreational pursuits, Innsbruck offers something for every visitor. SPPRA 2007 will be held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the city, near the historical quarter. This facility won the prestigious 'Best Conference Center in Europe Award' in 2000.
