The APRS is hosting a one-day workshop on image processing and pattern recognition in Brisbane on the 7th of February, 2003. The theme for the keynote and one oral session will be Medical Applications of Image Analysis.  Although papers with a medical theme were given priority, papers on topics of general interest to the image processing and pattern recognition community were also welcomed as listed below.  All papers were internationally reviewed to meet E1 publication requirements and the proceedings will be available at the workshop in CDROM format and printed abstracts.


Photos and proceedings are now available
