OAGM Workshop 2023


Patterns in One Health – Oct 24/25, 2023, Meduni Vienna

The Austrian Association for Pattern Recognition (OAGM) invites authors and guests to participate in its 46th annual workshop, held on October 24 and 25, 2023 at Meduni Vienna in the beautiful Van Swieten Saal.

The workshop will bring together the interdisciplinary scientific community in the areas of machine learning, artificial intelligence, computer vision, and biomedicine in Austria and nearby countries to present and discuss recent research and the most important directions in this rapidly evolving field, with impact across many disciplines.  This year, we have defined an interdisciplinary impulse theme of one health to engage and build a bridge to the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning.

Registration: please register via an email to workshop@aapr.at giving your Name and Institution. The registration fee is €250, and will be invoiced individually.

Invited speakers and Panelists:

  • Christoph Bock: Programmed Cells? Machine learning for molecular precision medicine
    CeMM & Medical University of Vienna
  • Gerhard Ecker: In silico Prediction of Toxicity – from QSAR models to biological Fingerprinting

following the format given in the official template (LaTex and Word). For camera-ready submission, please also upload the official Publishing Agreement form.

Submission formats:

To encourage the linking across communities active in the subject areas, we solicit (1) Full papers (max. 6 pages): novel, original, unpublished work. (2 ) Spotlight abstracts (max. 2 pages including one figure): exciting novel initial results or solutions of practical problems.

Paper/abstract lengths exclude references. All submitted papers and abstracts will undergo a double-blind peer review process by the program committee. We encourage in particular students to submit their work, to engage in an interdisciplinary exchange during the OAGM workshop.

In addition, there will be two awards:

  • OCG Best Paper Award for the best full paper
  • Best Student Paper Award for the best paper submitted by a student
