Welcome to the ICPR2006 Special Issue of the IAPR Newsletter! For those who could not attend the ICPR in Hong Kong in August -- and for those who were there -- this issue conveys some of the highlights.  Featured here are summaries of ten invited talks given at the conference. These paint a broad picture of some of the exciting work in our field. The “From the ExCo” article describes some of the society events, appointments, and awards that took place at the ICPR. 

In addition, this issue is particularly rich in book reviews with three on recent pattern recognition and signal processing texts. And, there are other regular articles relating to recent conferences, TC news, and upcoming Calls for Papers.

Please take a look, and, if you have comments, don't hesitate to send me email.                 ~L. O’Gorman, ed.
