2015 PRASA-RobMech International Conference

The 26th Annual Symposium of the Pattern Recognition Association of South Africa
The 8th Robotics and Mechatronics (Robmech) Conference of South Africa
26-27 November 2015, Port Elizabeth

The PRASA-RobMech International Conference, in association with IEEE RAS, SAIEE and SAIMechE, provides a platform to showcase and gauge the current state of pattern recognition methods and applications, advanced robotics and mechatronics research in South Africa. Research facilities in southern Africa and beyond are invited to submit their work for presentation. The symposium is open to all industries, research institutions and hobbyists. The symposium brings together researchers, academics, application engineers, users and policy makers of CAD/CAM/Pattern recognition, robotics and factory automation.

The conference is organised by the Advanced Mechatronic Technology Centre (AMTC), at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University's North Campus in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

This symposium is the 26th organised annual event of the Pattern Recognition Association of South Africa (PRASA). PRASA is affiliated with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and with the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

Detailed submission requirements are available on the relevant sections on the website and in the Call for Papers attached to this post.

This is a great opportunity to meet other like-minded scientists in the interdisciplinary fields of pattern recognition, robotics and mechatronics.

Closing date for submission of abstract, full paper and posters: 31 August 2015
Notification of paper acceptance: 30 September 2015
Conference registration opens: 01 August 2015
Final date for submission of print ready papers: 19 October 2015

AfLaT 2013 - Report

The 2013 edition of the AfLaT workshop series took place on Friday 6 December 2013, at Ghent University. It was the fifth in the series, and conceived differently from previous editions, in that we wanted to broaden our activities by reaching out to all colleagues who have lexical resources for African languages, and are already working with those resources, but have not yet necessarily made the move to using advanced computational routines to speed up the analysis or the building of tools.

And so AfLaT 5 was conceived as a MasterClass, led by the founding members of AfLaT: Guy De Pauw (U Antwerp), Gilles-Maurice de Schryver (U Ghent), and Peter Wagacha (U Nairobi). Researchers were invited to present their current data sets and/or research during max. 20minutes, to be followed by a discussion and advice from those present for 10 min.

On the following pages, you will find some impressions of the workshop. The full book of abstracts can be found here.
