This conference is an annual forum for new research on pattern recognition and tracking (PRT), which includes algorithm, architecture, and system approaches. Theoretical, simulation, and optical/digital/hybrid hardware realizations are strongly encouraged. Special emphasis will be given to new advances in pattern recognition and tracking. Papers on optical/digital filters and systems that perform with real-world non-ideal optical/digital devices are encouraged. Other pattern recognition architectures and approaches are also encouraged, which may include feature extractors for product inspection, and object identification and tracking. Papers on devices, components, systems, and products developed under the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program are encouraged. We further encourage papers on new techniques to process newer sensor data, such as laser radar and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) inputs.

The tentative list of topics for which papers are requested include: ;
