Are Better Feature Selection Methods Actually Better?

One of hot topics discussed recently in relation to pattern recognition techniques is the question of actual performance of modern feature selection methods.

MCS 2007

MCS 2007 is the seventh workshop in a well-established series of meetings providing an international forum for the discussion of issues in multiple classifier system design.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from diverse communities dealing with this topic, including neural network, pattern recognition, machine learning and statistics.

MCS 2007 will focus in particular on the application of multiple classifier systems in biometrics.

Michal Haindl - IAPR2004 ceremony

President of the International Association for Pattern Recognition IAPR prof. Rangachar Kasturi presents at Cambridge to Dr. Michal Haindl the IAPR Fellow award for contributions to the theory and practice of model-based pattern recognition.

The IAPR Fellow award is conferred on persons to acknowledge their distinguished contributions to the field of pattern recognition and to IAPR activities.
