The German Association for Pattern Recognition (Deutsche Arbeits-
gemeinschaft fuer Mustererkennung, DAGM) invites authors and guests to their
29th annual pattern recognition symposium. The meeting will take place in
romantic and academic Heidelberg on September 12th-14th, 2007.

The organizers are looking forward to welcoming 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 April 9th, 2007.

Best papers will receive DAGM awards with a total sum of Eur 4000. There
will probably be a challenge sponsored by industry, see website for updates.
Finally, DAGM invites nominations for the Olympus prize (Eur 5000).
