The eighth edition of the Iberian Conference on Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis, IbPRIA 2017, will be held in Faro, Algarve, Portugal, June 20-23, 2017. 
IbPRIA is an international conference co-organised by the Spanish AERFAI and the Portuguese APRP, chapters of the IAPR International Association for Pattern Recognition. IbPRIA is a single track conference consisting of high quality, previously unpublished papers, presented either orally or as a poster, intended to act as a forum for research groups, engineers and practitioners to present recent results, algorithmic improvements and promising future directions in pattern recognition and image analysis. 
All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, and will be published in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series, Springer LNCS. A copy of the proceedings will be distributed to all participants at the Conference. A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published in the Pattern Analysis and Applications journal.
We invite authors to submit papers in the following and related areas:
- Pattern Recognition
- Image Analysis
- Computer Vision
- Multimedia Systems
- Statistical and Structural Pattern Recognition
- Machine Learning and Data Mining
- Bioinformatics
- Image Coding and Processing
- Shape and Texture Analysis
- Information Systems
- Biometric Technologies
- Speech Recognition
- Document Processing
- Character and Text Recognition
- Robotics
- Remote Sensing
- Industrial Applications of Pattern Recognition
- Special Hardware Architectures

Papers should describe original and unpublished work on the topics of the conference. Prospective authors should prepare a full paper, written in English, not exceeding 8 pages and must submit it electronically. Further information can be found on the conference website. Each paper will be blind-reviewed by at least two reviewers and will be accepted based on its originality, significance and clarity. Submission implies that at least one of the authors has to register and to present the communication at the conference if the paper is accepted.
