Canadian Image Processing and Pattern Recognition Society
The Canadian Image Processing and Pattern Recognition Society (CIPPRS) is a special interest group of the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS) and is the national representative organization of the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR).
CIPPRS was established in the 1970's. Its key annual activity is the sponsorship of the Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV), formerly known as Vision Interface (VI). CRV (and previously VI) have a tradition of being co-located with AI and GI, a pair of conferences focused on on artificial intelligence and on computer graphics and human-computer interfaces.
