Dear list members: The following information about the signal-processing sub- conference of the International Conferences on Pattern Recognition to take place in Israel. If any of you have any thoughts on this, you could reply to either me or to David Malah - Al Bregman ------------------------------- Original Message ------------------------------- Dear PC member, I sent out to you today, via airmail, an envelope containing a variety of posters/fliers concerning the general ICPR-12 and the Signal-Processing Conference. As I have requested in my earlier e-mail, please post them in your institute, send to colleagues, etc. Below you'll find some general information about the conference location, travel, etc. This information is included also in the material I sent you (at the back of some of the posters). I would like to consult with you on the following matter: The general chairmen have informed me that it is planned to have half day tutorials before the conference begins (probably two for each sub-conference). I was asked to suggest subjects for two such tutorials. Could you please propose a topic or two for such a tutorial that in your opinion is timely and would attract people to attend. Also, if you yourself would like to give such a tutorial, that will be most welcome if the topic is approved by the general chairmen. There will be, of course, an appropriate renumeration (e.g., in the form of free accommodation, a percentage of the participants registration fee - if a sufficient number are attending, etc.). Even if you yourself would not like to give such a half-day tutorial, it would be very helpful if you could suggest a colleague that you recommend that we ask him to do that. I hope to have your cooperation in this important matter. Also, if you have not responded yet to my earlier request to explicitly define the topic(s) on which you would be willing to do the review of submitted papers, please do so. Finally, I would be leaving on Sunday for the US for a three months Summer visit at AT&T Bell Labs. Please continue to send you e-mail response to the current address in Israel, until I'll establish a US e-mail address. In any case mail arriving to the Technion will be forwarded to the US address. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and help, David Malah ========================================================================= ICPR-12 GENERAL INFORMATION CONGRESS VENUE The conference will be held at the Jerusalem Renaissance Hotel, Jerusalem.

VISAS Residents of most countries do not need entry visas to Israel, but we suggest that you check this with your travel agent. Participants requiring visas should apply directly to the nearest Israeli Consulate, approximately 3 months prior to the conference. This will enable obtaining the visa ahead of time.
