The 10th International
Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR2009) will
be held July, 26-29, 2009 in Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona,
Catalonia, Spain. The ICDAR2009, sponsored by the International
Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) TC-10 and TC-11, is an
international premier forum 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 proceedings are published by the
Conference Publishing Services. The ICDAR conference takes place every two years and is
attended by an average of 300 leading scientists and industrialists
in the field. Many companies in the past have sponsored ICDAR conferences,
such as: Microsoft, Google, Hitachi, PARC, IBM, ABBYY, Siemens,
Panasonic, Ricoh, nationally local companies, and local state or
Sponsorship is sought from companies and organizations. Interested
parties can help either by i) making a general contribution for
ICDAR2009 event or ii) by sponsoring a specific activity such as
contributing towards the student endowment fund, keynote speakers,
best paper award, best poster award, young researcher award, outstanding
achievement award or the competitions, etc.
We are using several means to ensure that our sponsors receive recognition
for their contribution, including their logo in the official ICDAR2009
web page, proceedings, and final program. Although ICDAR2009 will
not sell demo booths, ample space (a table with electricity) will
be provided for sponsor companies who want to demo their products
and display pamphlets. The benefits start once a sponsorship is
confirmed so there are definite advantages to signing on early.
We propose the
following modus operandi for supporting ICDAR '09. We are open to
discuss any other type of sponsorship modality.
- Level A.
- Level B.
Support welcome reception
- Level C.

- Level D.
