Workshop on Computational Aspects of Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision

Workshop on Computational Aspects of Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision CAPR&CV is organized under the framework  International Conference on Data Mining and Big Data (IC-DMBD’2016).

Workshop on Computational Aspects of Pattern Recognition (CAPR) will be held in Bali, Indonesia, from June 25 to 30, 2016.

Workshop description
Computational requirements on information processing systems are nowadays enormous - not only huge amounts of data needs to be processed and classified but also the systems need to deal with massive data usually in the form of data streams and frequently real-time processing requirements. Therefore computational aspects become a key issue in pattern recognition and computer vision. In this workshop we wish to collect researchers and practitioners to share interesting research topics and ideas especially in the area of computational aspects of PR & CV systems, starting from algorithm design and up to implementations and applications, encountered in computer vision and pattern recognition computer vision for information mining, especially form from massive data streams. Scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited, to the following topics:

  • Parallel implementations of PR&CV systems;
  • Graphic card (GPU) implementations of PR&CV systems;
  • Hardware implementations (FPGA) of PR&CV systems;
  • New algorithms for efficient computations on PR&CV systems;
  • Tips and tricks in PR&CV algorithms;
  • Industrial applications of PR&CV, especially with dedicated streaming data;
  • Computational aspects in all kinds of massive and streaming data;
  • Pattern recognition in computer vision, multimedia, and image processing;
  • Multilinear and tensor approach to data representation and pattern recognition;
  • Active learning for PR&CV;
  • Hyperspectral image processing;
  • Pattern recognition in hyperspectral images;
  • Visualisation and sonnification for high dimensional data;

Call for Special Session Proposals

DMBD'2016 technical program will include special sessions. Their aim is to provide a complementary flavor to the regular sessions and should include hot topics of interest to the swarm intelligence community that may also go beyond disciplines traditionally represented at DMBD'2016.

Prospective organizers of special sessions should submit proposals indicating:

* Title of the session.
* Rationale of the need for the special session at DMBD'2016I.
The rationale should stress the novelty of the topic and/or its multidisciplinary flavor, and must explain how it is different from the subjects covered by the regular sessions.
* Short biography of the organizers.
* List of 5 – 6 contributed papers (including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author) (this can also be provided later when they become available).

Proposals are due on or before January 15, 2016 and should be sent via e-mail (in either pdf or plain ASCII text form) to the special sessions chair (Dr. Shi Cheng at and forward to DMBD 2016 secretariat at

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, the qualifications of the organizers and the authors of the papers proposed in the session. In its decision, the committee will try to realize a balance of the topics across the technical areas represented in swarm intelligence.

Notification of acceptance will be sent to the organizers no later than January 15, 2016. Authors of papers included in approved special sessions should submit their manuscript on or before January 30, 2016. Manuscripts should conform to the formatting and electronic submission guidelines of regular DMBD'2016 papers (Springer’s LNCS format).

When they submit papers, there is a choice to indicate that their papers are special session papers which will also undergo peer review. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their special session meets the DMBD'2016 quality standards. If, at the end of the review process, less than four papers are accepted, the session will be canceled and the accepted papers will be moved to regular sessions.
