Call for Papers

The German Conference on Pattern Recognition (GCPR) 2019 is the 41th annual symposium of the German Association for Pattern Recognition (DAGM). The GCPR addresses recent advances in theory, methodology, and applications of pattern recognition, machine learning, and computer vision. Authors are invited to submit high-quality papers presenting original research. Submitted papers will be reviewed based on the criteria of originality, soundness, empirical evaluation, and presentation. In the long tradition of this conference series, the single track program with oral and poster sessions will provide ample opportunity for open-minded discussions and interaction. The conference will also include tutorials and a Young Researchers Forum.

TU Dortmund University

Since its founding 48 years ago, TU Dortmund University has developed a special profile, encompassing 16 faculties ranging from science and engineering -- including one of the largest computer science departments in Germany -- to social sciences and cultural studies. The university currently has approximately 33,500 students and 6,200 staff members, including 300 professors. The curriculum is comprised of around 80 programs of study, both traditional and innovative, some even unique to this university. A broad teacher training program is also offered for all school types. The various scientific disciplines share a common university spirit in which interdisciplinary, communication and cooperation are not only taught, but lived and experienced. This interaction creates an environment conducive to technological innovation and fosters advances in methods and knowledge.
