The 5th INNS IAPR TC3 GIRPR International Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition has been held at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Trento, Italy.
ANNPR 2012 follows the success of ANNPR 2003 (Florence), ANNPR 2006 (Ulm), ANNPR 2008 (Paris), and ANNPR 2010 (Cairo). This 5th ANNPR workshop has acted as a major forum for international researchers and practitioners working in all areas of neural network- and machine learning-based pattern recognition to present and discuss the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.
This year the workshop received the endorsement from the International Neural Network Society (INNS), from the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), from the Technical Committees 3 (TC3) of IAPR ("Neural Networks & Computational Intelligence"), and from GIRPR (Gruppo Italiano Ricercatori in Pattern Recognition).
Papers presented weredealing with neural networks, machine learning and pattern recognition which emphasize methodological issues possibly arising in applications.
