Welcome to the 25th Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition website

NEW DATES: 10 - 13 May 2021



Two conference awards will be given: the CIARP-IAPR Best Paper Award and the Medal Aurora Pons-Porrata. 

The best paper award will be selected from the accepted full papers, and the Aurora Pons Porrata Medal will be selected from a committee that analyses nominated female researchers that contributed significantly to the pattern recognition field.

The extended version of the best paper award and the winner of the Medal Aurora Pons Porrata will be invited for submission in the Pattern Recognition Letters journal.


A special issue of the Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering: Imaging & Visualization journal devoted to the event will be organised with the extended version of the best accepted full papers related to bio- imaging or visualization.
