W4PR: Women at ICPR Workshop


A celebration of the ICPR's female researchers to be held in conjunction with the

25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR 2020)
Milan, Italy
January 10, 2021

The first Women at ICPR workshop (W4PR) will celebrate women's contributions to the IAPR. It aims to foster a culture embracing inclusiveness and diversity values within IAPR, by creating an opportunity for young and senior women scientists to interact and connect with each other. This workshop builds upon past social events (coffee break and lunch) for women organized at ICPR 2016 (Cancun) and ICPR 2018 (Beijing).

Because of the shift to an online format, all papers by ICPR's women authors will now already be available to everyone by video. The revised workshop will consist of live online activities, including several invited talks, a panel discussion, and breakout sessions focusing on career development. You are welcome to propose topics for breakout sessions.

Delegates of any gender are welcome to attend.

More details will follow over the next 2 months.

Draft Program

The online event will occur on Sunday January 10. We do not yet know what time the workshop will occur at.

The plan is for several invited talks, a panel discussion, and breakout sessions focusing on career development.
