December 13-15, 2023

HIS 2023 will be a hybrid conference that will run fully in-person and fully virtually to take advantage of the best that the two modalities can offer. Besides regular paper presentations, the technical programme will include 8-10 plenary lectures and poster sessions. HIS 2023 Organising Committee also recognises the benefits of virtual conferences allowing participation at a cheaper rate. This allows a higher number of research scholars and students to attend. Selected authors will have the option to attend and present the papers virtually or present in one of the FOUR venues in Europe and Asia.

Like previous years, proceedings of SoCPaR'23 are expected to be published with Springer Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems (LNNS) series. (https://www.springer.com/series/15179

**About SoCPaR 2023**

After the success of the 14th International Conference on
Soft Computing and Pattern Recognition (SoCPaR 2022),
SoCPaR 2023 is organized to bring together worldwide leading
researchers and practitioners interested in advancing the
state-of-the-art in Soft Computing and Pattern Recognition,
for exchanging knowledge that encompasses a broad range of
disciplines among various distinct communities. It is hoped
that researchers and practitioners will bring new prospects
for collaboration across disciplines and gain inspiration to
facilitate novel breakthroughs. The themes for this conference
are thus focused on "Innovating and Inspiring Soft Computing and
Intelligent Pattern Recognition".
