S+SSPR 2018 is a joint biannual event organized by Technical Committee 1 (Statistical Pattern Recognition Technique) and Technical Committee 2 (Structural and Syntactical Pattern Recognition) of the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR). Following the trend of previous editions, S+SSPR 2018 will be held in close proximity and shortly before the International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR). This time the workshops will be hosted by Beihang University. Successful authors are invited to submit papers addressing any topic in statistical, structural or syntactic pattern recognition and their applications.
The scope of the papers (including but not limited to):
|Classification; Prediction||Structural Matching|
|Gaussian Processes; Randomized Algorithms||Structural Complexity|
|Multiple Classifiers; Ensemble Methods||Syntactic Pattern Recognition|
|Model Selection; Feature Selection||Graph-theoretic Methods|
|Dimensionality Reduction||Graphical Models|
|Dissimilarity Representations||Structural Kernels|
|Metric Learning; Representation Learning||Spectral Methods|
|Multiple Instance Learning||Spatio-Temporal Pattern Recognition|
|Clustering||Structured Text Analysis|
|Semi-Supervised Learning; Weakly-supervised Learning||Stochastic Structural Models|
|Active Learning; Novelty Detection||Intelligent Sensing Systems|
|Deep Learning; Neural Networks||Multimedia Analysis|
|Adversarial Learning; Reinforcement Learning||Multimedia Retrieval|
|Transfer Learning; Domain Adaptation||Image Document Analysis|
|Data Complexity; Data Modeling||Image Understanding|
|Security of Machine Learning||Shape Analysis|
Related Special Issue
Papers from this conference will be invited to submit their substantially expanded papers to a Special Issue " Recent Advances in Statistical, Structural and Syntactic Pattern Recognition", which will be published in Pattern Recognition Letters in 2019.

Instructions for Authors
Papers should be double blind, that is the authors names and addresses should be blanked out from the first page, there should be no identifying acknowledgements and self citation should not identify authors (i.e. DO NOT USE "In  we have shown that...", or "In previous work  we have shown that...", BUT INSTEAD USE "In  Smith has shown that..."
Some authors may wish to submit papers which are similar to material submitted to ICPR. S+SSPR will accepted such papers provided that at least half of the substantial material in the paper is new (theory and experiments, but not review or discussion). Please state on your submission if this applies to your paper.
