Papers will be in . Similar to previous conferences, indexing in and . Welcome to the 5th International Conference on Imaging, Vision & Pattern Recognition (IVPR)! 5th IVPR is Technically Co-sponsored by and sponsored by . Similar to the previous 4 IVPR conferences in Bangladesh, Japan, and USA - the accepted and presented papers will be sent for IEEE Xplore.
  • Corona Virus Issue: If one cannot attend the conference in-person, we provide remote presentation (online presentation will have reduced registration fee). Remain safe and strong.

Special Issues in Journal:

Work-in-Progress (WiP) Paper Submission:

  • Promising papers can be submitted to WiP sessions - so that authors can share any innovative ideas, work-in-progress reports during the conference. We engage a panel of good experts in the related fields to evaluate, advise on emerging topics. Authors can have the great opportunity to listen from a good no. of Keynote and Invited Speakers, make networking and learn from others.
  • Paper submission: 2~6 pages, as per the template.
  • Mention 'WiP: ' at the beginning of your TITLE.
  • These papers will NOT be in IEEE Xplore, but you have to present your paper at the conference.
  • As the WiP papers will not be in IEEE Xplore, after the conferences, some of the good papers can be invited for extended version as a book chapter in an edited book series in Springer. These will be decided after the recommendations from the experts who will evaluate the WiP presentations! Don't miss this learning process!
  • A panel of top experts will judge various best papers under different categories. They will also help the researchers to work better. The purpose is to allow young researchers to have exposure and learning.
  • Certificates for all participants. If any highly-promising WiP papers are found with challenging ideas/themes/scopes, the conf. may offer 'Best WiP Paper Award'.
  • Some papers from regular submission may be forwarded to WiP based on quality & originality.

The IVPR provides vibrant opportunities for researchers, industry practitioners and students to share their research experiences, research results, ideas, review of various aspects and practical development experiences on Image Processing, Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and related topics. Through various presentations from peer-reviewed accepted papers, special talks, tutorials, and networking - the IVPR provides an avenue to share knowledge, make networks, and develop a community for the new researchers - based on the experiences of experts.

The IVPR welcomes you to be a part of it - through offering Special Session, Tutorial, Workshop, Special Talk, Panel Discussion, and through submitting your research paper on and related arenas!
