The 4th Mediterranean Conference on Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence (MedPRAI-2020) will take place on 20-22, December, 2020 in Hammamet, Tunisia.

Following the three successful previous editions of MedPRAI (Algeria 2016, Morocco 2018 and Turkey 2019), the 4th edition of MedPRAI will be held in Hammamet (Tunisia) from 20 to 22 December 2020. MedPRAI is organized by the Digital Research Center of Sfax (CRNS) and MIRACL laboratory, it aims to provide researchers and practitioners from academia and industry with a forum on the last developments in pattern recognition and artificial intelligence. The conference will also provide a unique opportunity for sharing experiences from different backgrounds with the common interest in advanced methods in the above-mentioned fields. The scientific program of MedPRAI 2020 will include the presentation of invited plenary talks, regular sessions, poster sessions and some special sessions.

Since the third edition of 2019, the proceedings are published in the Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series of Springer:

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the international program committee; additional reviewers will be consulted if needed. Paper acceptance will be based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation. The 4th Mediterranean Conference on Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence is endorsed by the International Association for Pattern Recognition.

It is planned to publish the proceedings with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science series. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a special issue published in Neural Computing and Applications (2018 JCR Impact Factor: 4.664).
