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

The conference will address 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.

The ICIAR series of conferences is organized annually, alternating between Europe and America. In 2004, the first conference, ICIAR 2004, was held in Porto, Portugal; ICIAR 2006 and ICIAR 2008 were held in Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal. ICIAR 2005 was held in Toronto, Canada, and ICIAR 2007 in Montreal, Canada. ICIAR 2009 will take place in Halifax, Canada.
