The goal of the CORES series of conferences is the development of theories, algorithms, and applications of pattern recognition methods. The series has served as a forum for the various groups working in area of pattern recognition to come together and help each other keep up with this active area of research.
CORES 2005 was organized by Prof.Marek Kurzyński and his team from Chair of Systems and Computer Networks at Wroclaw University of Technology. The conference was endorsed by International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), its’ Polish member society (Association for Image Processing, TPO), State School of Higher Vocational Education of Jan Amos Komenski in Leszno, and Leszno Society of Friends of Arts and Sciences. The beautiful environment or Rydyna Castle in Poland, the number of experts, the casual atmosphere, and the social events led to educational and energetic talks and discussions at CORES 2005.
This conference contained the usual excellent mix of theory, algorithms, and applications of pattern recognition methods. There were several plenary papers that neatly summarized the work that has been done so far and discussed the gaps that need to be filled.
Invited talks were presented on topics of increasing importance in our modern world:
¨ Prof. D. Chetverikov in “Description and Recognition of Dynamic Textures” presented a review of the dynamic textures analysis problem,
¨ Prof. R. DUIN in “Open Issues in Pattern Recognition” sumarized the works that have been done so far in pattern recognition and pointed at the areas that need be expanded.
¨ Prof. J.L.KULIKOWSKI presented new possibilities of “Application of Ontological Models in Pattern Recognition”
¨ Prof. J. OOMMEN in “New Trends in Pattern Recognition Using Chaotic Neural Networks” described his own idea of chaotic neural networks.
¨ Prof. P. PUDIL and Dr P. SOMOL in ”Current Feature Selection Techniques in Statistical Pattern Recognition” summarized works in the area of feature selection.
¨ Prof. R. TADEUSIEWICZ and Prof. M. OGIELA presented “On Automatic Understanding,” in which they showed the next step of image analysis – image understanding on the base on scene context.
The talks and discussions of CORES 2005 gave the attendees an excellent overview of the work done in the field of pattern recognition methods as well as new problems to focus on. Some of young presenters were awarded for their presentations:
¨ The first best presentation award goes to Elzbieta Pekalska for her work “Pairwise Selection of Features and Prototypes”
¨ The second best presentation award goes to Ewa Lukasik for her work “Wavelet Packets Features Extraction and Selection for Discriminating Plucked Sound of Violins”
¨ The third best presentation award goes to Henryk Maciejewski for his work “Clustering DNA Microarray Data”.
Additionaly eight distinctions were announced.
The next CORES will be held in Poland in May 2007.
