The Technical Committee 7(TC-7 Remote Sensing an Mapping) of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) and the ISPRS Inter Commission Working Group III/VII (Pattern Analysis in Remote Sensing) organize the 9th  International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Remote Sensing (PRRS 2016). This workshop will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Pattern Recognition ICPR 2016. The workshop is co-sponsored by IAPR, ISPRS, and IEEE-GRSS.

In the past decade the PRRS workshop has established itself as an important event for scientists involved in the combined fields of pattern recognition and remote sensing. Therefore it has always been organized together with the ICPR conferences. Pattern recognition and remote sensing have always overlapped, but the large volumes of remote sensing data now coming from last generation sensors require new advanced algorithms and techniques for automatic analysis. This one-day workshop will be the ideal means to spread and exchange experiences by international researchers.
