The 25th Annual Symposium of the Pattern Recognition Association of South Africa

27-28 November 2014, Cape Town


This website will provide you with all the information you need for this year's PRASA conference, which will take place on 27 and 28 November 2014 at Lagoon Beach Hotel in Cape Town. 

This symposium is the 25th 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).  

PRASA will be held in conjunction with the 6th Workshop on African Language Technology (AfLaT) and the 7th conference of Robotics and Mechatronics (RobMech). See http://robmech.co.za and http://www.aflat.org for more information on these events. 

In addition to PRASA, AfLaT and RobMech, the 11th FASTAR workshop will take place from 1-5 December in Stellenbosch to make provision for interested parties to attend all four events. See  http://www.fastar.org/wiki/index.php?title=FASTAR_2014 for more information on the workshop. 


Students are encouraged to submit papers, posters and demonstrations. Detailed submission requirements are available on the relevant websites and in the Call for papers section.

The conference is organised by the Centre for Text Technology (CTexT®), at the North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus.  

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