GbR is a biennial workshop organized by the 15th Technical Committee of IAPR, aimed at encouraging research works in Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis within the graph theory framework.

The 13th edition will be held in Vietri sul Mare (Salerno, Italy) at Lloyd’s Baia Hotel, September 6 – 8, 2023.

This workshop series traditionally provides a forum for presenting and discussing research results and applications in the intersection of pattern recognition, image analysis on one side and graph theory on the other side. In addition, given the avenue of new structural/graphical models and structural criteria for solving computer vision problems, GbR2023 organization encourages researchers in this more general context to actively participate in the workshop. Furthermore, the application of graphs to pattern recognition problems in other fields like computational topology, graphic recognition systems and bioinformatics is also highly welcome at the workshop.

The proceedings of the workshop have been published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. For information visit this page.

The authors participating to the workshop will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a Special Issue on the Pattern Recognition Letters journal, with the title: “Graph-based Representations for Pattern Recognition: New Results and Challenges”. The submission period for the Special Issue will be in from the 1st to 20th of December 2023. Please, find the call for papers at this link.
