ICIAR – International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition aims to bring together researchers in the fields of Image Processing, Analysis and Recognition.

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 addresses recent advances in theory, methodologies and applications. The scientific program will include invited speakers and fully refereed contributions that will be published in the conference proceedings.

ICIAR is organized annually, alternating between Europe and North America. In 2004, the first conference was held in Porto, Portugal. ICIAR 2005 will take place in Toronto, Canada.


The conference aims to provide a forum for presentations and discussions of the recent methodological advances in Image Processing, Analysis and Recognition. Special sessions will be also organized for addressing promising applications in various fields. The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:

  • Image and Video Processing and Analysis
  • Image and Video Coding
  • Image Retrieval and Indexing
  • Image Description and Recognition
  • Biometrics
  • Color, Texture, and Motion Analysis
