Call for Application - NLPR Overseas Visting Fellowship

 

The National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition (NLPR), affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Automation (CASIA), Beijing, China, was founded in 1987 to become one of the first state key laboratories (SKLs) in China. The mission of the NLPR is to conduct cutting-edge research in the broad area of pattern recognition, to develop key technologies, and to train postgraduate students. The NLPR receives regular funds and bids projects from various departments of the Chinese government, primarily, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST), the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
