January 4, 1993 Dear AUDITORY List Members, I have agreed to be on the program committee of the International Conferences on Pattern Recognition to be held in 1994 in Jerusalem. I am to put together one or two sessions and possibly some posters on Auditory Scene Analysis. This is the first time that this conference has acknowledged our area of research explicitly in their planning (see section 3 of their announcement given below). It creates an excellent opportunity for our group to make its presence felt in the world of pattern recognition. Our session(s) would form part of the section on Signal Processing, whose conference chairman is David Malah of the Technion, email address <malah(at)>. Malah writes: "It is ... reasonable to assume that at most two sessions of 1.5 hours each could be dedicated to Auditory Scene Analysis, this gives us a maximum of 10 paper presentations and perhaps the same number of poster papers. Please regard these figures just as a preliminary estimate - as I have not consulted any of the conference organizers." "By the way, the last conference also had tutorials during the two days preceding the conference (registrants had to pay an extra fee). I don't know yet if any are scheduled in our conference. The last conference did not have invited talks at the beginning of sessions. I think we might have. If we do, then such a session will have one paper less." I know the fall of 1994 seems a long way off, but people need to make plans well in advance to assure travel funding through their institutions, companies, or grants. So I want to bring this to your attention well ahead of the date of the conference. Given below is the general call for papers by the ICPR. If you want to indicate a preliminary interest, without any commitment, please email me at <in09(at)>. It would be nice to present a cross-section of the types of work done in our area. - Al Bregman Psychology Department Tel.

Canada H3A 1B1 ============================================================================= CALL FOR PAPERS - 12th ICPR International Conferences on Pattern Recognition Oct 9-13, 1994, Jerusalem, Israel The 12th ICPR of the International Association for Pattern Recognition will be organized as a set of four conferences, each dealing with a special topic. The program for each individual conference will be organized by its own Program Committee. Papers describing applications are encouraged, and will be reviewed by a special Applications Committee. An award will be given for the best industry-related paper presented at the conference. Considerations for this award will include innovative applications, robust performance, and contributions to industrial progress. An exhibition will also be held. The conference proceedings are published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. GENERAL CO-CHAIRS: S. Ullman - Weizmann Inst. (shimon(at) S.
