More on this journal...

The objectives of IJAPR are to establish effective communications between researchers and developers to create awareness and propel the development of pattern recognition applications. It aims to benchmark, evaluate and standardise new research ideas and methods having high impact on industrial and scientific applications.


IJAPR provides a vehicle to help professionals, engineers, academics and researchers working in the field of machine intelligence hardware to disseminate information on state-of-the-art techniques and their management, evaluation, benchmarking and standardisation mainly when applied to large data pattern recognition problems. The journal serves as a forum to integrate interdisciplinary research work involving academic researchers and industrial scientists and developers in the area of real world data analytics and their implementation.


IJAPR publishes original regular papers, research reviews, and short papers on the design, development, evaluation, testing and standardisation of pattern recognition applications. Special issues devoted to important and emerging topics in pattern recognition applications as well as to related international events on these topics will also be published.
