ICIAR – International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition aims to bring together researchers in the fields of Image Processing, Analysis, and Recognition. It will be organized annually, alternating between Europe and North America. In 2004, the conference is held in Porto, Portugal. The second edition, ICIAR – 2005 will take place in Toronto, Canada.

The conference is a result of discussion between researchers in Portugal and Canada to encourage collaboration and exchange between the two Countries with participation of experts and researchers from other Countries.

The conference will address recent advances in both methodological issues and different application areas. The scientific program will include invited speakers and fully refereed contributions that will be published in the conference proceedings.


The conference aims to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the recent methodological advances in Image Processing, Analysis and Recognition.
