This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th IAPR TC3 International Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition, ANNPR 2016, held in Ulm, Germany, in September 2016.
The 25 revised full papers presented together with 2 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 32 submissions for inclusion in this volume. The workshop will act as a major forum for international researchers and practitioners working in all areas of neural network- and machine learning-based pattern recognition to present and discuss the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.
