DAGM GCPR 2021 in Bonn – Call for Papers

The 43rd DAGM German Conference on Pattern Recognition, the annual symposium of the German Association for Pattern Recognition (DAGM) will be organized September 28th to October 1st in Bonn. Paper submission deadline is June 17th.

The conference is an international premier venue for recent advances in pattern recognition including image processing, machine learning, and computer vision and welcomes submissions from all areas of pattern recognition. It features special tracks, a special session on Unsolved Problems in Pattern Recognition, the German Pattern Recognition Award for outstanding research in the fields of pattern recognition, computer vision, and machine learning, the DAGM MVTec Dissertation Award, and the Young Researchers' Forum with an award for the best Master thesis.

The program includes keynotes by David Forsyth (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Kristen Grauman (University of Texas at Austin, Facebook AI Research), Thorsten Joachims (Cornell University), and Jiri Matas (Czech Technical University, Prague). A tutorial on Geometric Deep Learning will be given by Emanuele Rodolà (Sapienza University of Rome).

The organizers monitor the current situation and will decide in time if the conference will be held in Bonn or organized as a virtual conference.
