Newsletter 08

Hello everybody,

I hadn't really in mind to send out TC10 news just now, as the
different details of our TC10 workshop organization have not been
completely pinned down yet, but I have received so many announcements
of events that are more or less relevant for our community that I
prefer sending them out before this information becomes too outdated.

There are probably many of you who already receive this information
from other channels, but if only there is for each of these
announcements one of you who receives this info for the first time,
I think it is worth sending it out...

First, announcement of a workshop which TC10 co-sponsors: the next
workshop in the Machine Vision Applications (MVA) series:

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.

------------------------------------
Well, once again this mail gets quite long. I hope I will be back on
the air before the end of this year with fresh info about the TC10
event, but in case this gets still more delayed, I wish you all a
happy Christmas time (for those who celebrate this day) and a very
good new year, rich in joy, success and happiness, professionnally and
in your private life.
