Description

CALL FOR PAPERS
The Eighth IASTED International Conference on
Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition and Applications
~SPPRA 2010~
February 17 – 19, 2010
Innsbruck, Austria

SPONSOR

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

PURPOSE

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 double-blind peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee and related technical committees. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation, and references. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

SPPRA 2010 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AIA 2010)
* Modelling, Identification and Control (MIC 2010)
* Parallel and Distributed Computing and Networks (PDCN 2010)
* Software Engineering (SE 2010)
* Computer Graphics and Imaging (CGIM 2010)
* Biomedical Engineering (BioMed 2010)

LOCATION

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 2010 will be held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the city, near the historical quarter.
