Call for Papers

Workshop on Applications of Pattern Analysis
1 - 2 September 2010, Cumberland Lodge (Windsor, UK)
Submission deadlines: may 9th for abstract; may 16th for full paper.


Pattern Analysis and Statistical Learning cover a wide range of
technologies and theoretical frameworks, and significant activity in
the past years has resulted in a remarkable convergence and many
advances in the theory and principles underlying the field.

Bringing these technologies to real world demanding applications is
however often treated as a separate problem, one that does not
directly affect the field as a whole. It is instead important to
consider the field of Pattern Analysis as fully including all issues
involved with the applications of this technology, and hence all
issues that arise when deploying, scaling, implementing and using the

We call for contributions in the form of Demo papers, Case Studies,  
Systems, Real World Applications and Usage Scenarios. Challenges may
stem from the violation of common theoretical assumptions, from the
specific types of patterns and noise arising in certain scenarios, or
from the problem of scaling up the implementation of state of the art
algorithms to real world sizes, or from the creation of integrated
software systems that contain multiple pattern-analysis components.

The workshop particularly encourages submissions on applications
of pattern analysis in robotics.

We are also interested in new application areas, where Pattern
Analysis has been deployed with success, and in issues involving the
visualisation and delivery and exploitation of the patterns discovered
by PA technologies. Systems working in noisy and unstructured
environments and situations are particularly interesting.

We welcome papers (and possibly also related demos) in all of the areas
described above. Papers should be max 7 pages long, in PDF, using
the provided style file, describing a working system that makes use of
Pattern Analysis technology and for which interesing challenges were
encountered and overcome during its deployment, or an application that
has benefited another field of research.
Papers describing software and web demos are
welcome, as are case studies.

Submissions should be sent by email to wapa2010 at pascal-network.org.
Abstracts are due on may 9th, and full papers on may 16th, 2010.

Proceedings will be published containing the accepted papers within
the JMLR Proceedings Series:
