The German Association for Pattern Recognition (Deutsche Arbeits-
gemeinschaft fuer Mustererkennung, DAGM) invites authors and guests to
their 31st annual pattern recognition symposium. The meeting will take
place in the current "City of Science" Jena, Germany, on
September 9th-11th, 2009.

The organizers are looking forward to welcome both renowned experts
and newcomers in all areas of pattern recognition and image processing
to present and discuss recent progress and advances. The single-track
program will leave ample space for discussion; particular importance
will be given to the poster sessions to allow for intensive
interaction.

The proceedings will be published in a dedicated volume with
accompanying CD of the Springer Series on Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS). All manuscripts will be subject to a double-blind review
process. The submission deadline is
