Belarusian research in the area of pattern recognition and image processing was very strong in the former Soviet Union. It led that when in 1991 USSR Association of Pattern Recognition decided to organize First All-Union Conference "Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis" (ROAI in Russian), the proposal to host this conference was made to Belarusian scientists. Initiative group of Belarusian scientists was a core who organized the Conference. The host organization was Institute of Engineering Cybernetics, Belarusian Academy of Sciences. The Conference was held in October 1991. More than 200 researchers participated in the Conference. Four volumes of the Proceedings have been published.

Then, in December 1991, USSR stopped its existence. Such as all information about foreign events was passed in Moscow first, Belarusian scientists practically stopped receiving any information. It was one of the main motivation for our decision. Moreover, we have to say that most of the international activity in Pattern Recognition area has been organized by International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR). In 1988, USSR Association of pattern Recognition joined the IAPR. Then, in 1992, USSR Association became the Russian one, and Belarusian scientists had to think about their own steps. After the consultations with IAPR in autumn of 1992 it was decided to create Belarusian association. The meeting of Belarusian researchers working in image analysis and pattern recognition was held on December 14, 1992. At that meeting, Belarusian Association for Image Analysis and Recognition (BAIAR) was created. All necessary documents were prepared and BAIAR was officially registered as non-profit public organization in Belarus. In March 1993, IAPR considered all submitted documents and officially accepted BAIAR as a national representative of Belarus in IAPR.

In 1992-1993, economic situation in the former Soviet Union republics was very difficult. The financial difficulties led to reduction of a number of scientific events held annually in the USSR. Only the most known and well established conferences continue to be held but their attendance were very reduced. The attendance of international conferences in other countries was practically impossible due to financial difficulties. In spite of all these problems, BAIAR decided that the second PRIP must take place. BAIAR formulated the goal of the PRIP Conference as follows: to establish cooperation between Belarusian researchers and International Community in the field of Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis.

It was done all preparation, and in October 1993 the Conference was held. The host organization was Institute of Engineering Cybernetics. The attendance was not big due to deep crisis, so mainly scientists from Belarus attended the Conference. One volume of the Proceedings has been published. The official Conference language was Russian. 

The strong attempt to increase level of the third PRIP Conference was made in 1995. There were made several important decisions by BAIAR, namely: 

  • two conference languages: Russian and English (currentrly, English only)
  • to change the title of the Conference. It started to call «Pattern Recognition and Information Processing» in English. Changing the name was made to be separated from Russian ROAI Conference.
  •  to start intensive cooperation with International Institutions. 
Three volumes of Proceedings have been published: one volume was published in English in Poland, and two volumes were published in Russian in Minsk. The main organization was the Institute of Engineering Cybernetics.
It was decided at that Conference that three Belarusian organizations (Institute of Engineering Cybernetics of the Academy of Sciences, Belarusian State University and Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics) would organize the Conference on a rotation base.
