ICIAR – International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition aims to bring together researchers in the fields of Image Processing, Image Analysis and Pattern Recognition.

The conference will address recent advances in theory, methodologies and applications. The scientific program will include invited speakers and fully refereed contributions that will be published in the conference proceedings.

The ICIAR series of conferences is organized annually, alternating between Europe and North America.

ICIAR 2013 will be take place in Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal.
