We are pleased to announce that the Tenth International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR'2009), sponsored by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) TC-10 (Graphics Recognition) and TC-11 (Reading Systems) will be held at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain during July 26-29, 2009. ICDAR is an outstanding international forum for researchers and practitioners at all levels of experience for identifying, encouraging and exchanging ideas on the state-of-the-art in document analysis, understanding, retrieval, and performance evaluation, including various forms of multimedia documents. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Character Recognition
  • Handwriting Recognition
  • Graphics Recognition
  • Document Image Analysis
  • Document Understanding
  • Document Analysis Systems
  • Basic Research and Methodologies for Document Processing
  • Camera-based Document Processing
  • Document Databases and Digital Libraries
  • Multimedia Documents
  • Sketching Interfaces
  • Performance Evaluation
  • Forensic Science
  • Analysis of Historical Documents
  • Applications

PAPER SUBMISSION

Manuscripts of maximum five pages are encouraged to be submitted. Papers must describe original work on any of the ICDAR related topics. The format templates and instructions for paper submission will be available in the Conference web site. The deadline for paper submission is January 12, 2009.

WORKSHOPS

Traditionally the scientific program of ICDAR is complemented by satellite workshops focusing on particular subfields: Graphics Recognition (GREC) and Camera Based Document Analysis and Recognition (CBDAR). Proposals of new workshops will be welcome. Please contact the Workshops Chair, Dr. J. Hu, before September 30, 2008.

TUTORIALS (call for tutorials)

ICDAR2009 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial Program, to be held immediately before to the technical conference. Tutorials should survey mature or emerging topics of interest to the ICDAR community at large. Proposals should be submitted by e-mail to the Tutorial Chair, Dr. J.M. Ogier, before December 19th, 2008.

COMPETITIONS (call for competitions)

As at the past ICDAR editions, competition to evaluate the performance of different document analysis algorithm classes will be organized. To propose a competition, please contact the Competitions Chair, Dr. W. Liu, before December 19th, 2008.
