International Conference on Pattern Recognition 2014: Virtual Booth

By: , Posted on: August 21, 2014

ICPR14Elsevier, under the imprint of Academic Press, has a proud tradition of publishing highly regarded tutorial texts in signal, image, video, audio and speech processing, pattern recognition and computer vision, suitable for the undergraduate, post  graduate and researcher.

In an effort to make our books more available during events and conferences, we’ve created this virtual booth for the 22nd International Conference on Pattern Recognition in Stockholm, which runs from August 24-28, and is hosted by the Swedish Society for Automated Image Analysis (SSBA). ICPR 2014 will be an international forum for discussions on recent advances in the fields of Pattern Recognition; Machine Learning and Computer Vision;  and on applications of these technologies in various fields.

Elsevier Authors In Attendance:

Rama Chellappa – Minta Martin Professor of Engineering Chair, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering University of Maryland and Editor-in-Chief of Academic Press Library in Signal Processing series including:
