The Objective : To bring the researchers working in pattern
recognition, digital techniques and related
areas under one umbrella to enable exchange
of ideas and interaction between them for
the advancement of science and technology.

The Theme : Applications of Pattern Recognition and Digital
Techniques to Intelligent Systems.

The Topics of
Interest : These include but not limited to the following:
pattern recognition, image processing & computer
vision, artificial intelligence, signal processing
including speech, radar/satellite remote sensing
with applications, atmospheric modeling & forecasting,
neuro-computing, fuzzy systems, hybrid soft computing
systems, approximate reasoning & related tools like
fractals, chaos, mathematical morphology, genetic
algorithms, & rough sets.

The Venue : The Conference will be held in the Indian Statistical
Institute, Calcutta. The conference site is very close
to the Calcutta International Airport and is well
connected by India's two important railway terminus.

Accommodation : For details about hotels/guest houses/ hostels in the city,
