Eighth IAPR International Workshop on Graphics Recognition
(GREC 2009)

July, 22-23, 2009

The Eighth International Workshop on Graphics Recognition (GREC2009), organized by IAPR TC-10 (Technical Committee on Graphics Recognition), will be held at the City University of La Rochelle, Fance on July 22-23, 2009, just before the 10th International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR), Barcelona, Spain. The GREC workshops provide an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners at all levels of experience to meet colleagues and to share new ideas and knowledge about graphics recognition methods. Graphics recognition is a subfield of document image analysis that deals with graphical entities in engineering drawings, maps, architectural plans, musical scores, mathematical notation, tables, diagrams, etc.

Workshop venue: City University of La Rochelle, France.

 

 

 

Third Workshop on Analytics for Noisy Unstructured Text Data
(AND 2009)

July, 23-24, 2009

AND 2009 is a workshop devoted to issues arising from the need to contend with noisy inputs, the impact noise can have on downstream applications, and the demands it places on document analysis. The Third Workshop on Analytics for Noisy Unstructured Text Data will build on two previous successful AND workshops held in 2007 (in conjunction with the 20th Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence [IJCAI]) and in 2008 (in conjunction with the 31st Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference).

Workshop venue: Convention Center Hotel Serhs Campus, Bellatera. Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

 

 

 

July, 25, 2009

The objective of the MOCR workshop will be to explore methodologies for multilingual document analysis systems with particular focus on OCR. The scope of Multilingual OCR is defined to include systems that are capable of reading more than one language in the same document, as well as one-language-per-document systems that can be easily retargeted to new languages. The workshop will provide a forum for technical discussions on three important themes: progress in the last decade, hard open research problems, and proven methods.

Third International Workshop on Camera-Based Document Analysis
and Recognition (CBDAR 2009)

July, 25, 2009

Pervasive use of camera phones and hand-held digital still and video cameras have let us discover that image-based recording of information by just pressing a button is really convenient. In addition to imaging faces and scenes, people have started capturing documents to preserve contents. Cameras, which are now functioning as personal copiers, will soon produce a huge number of imaged documents that are beyond manual handling. Although traditional techniques developed in the field of document analysis and recognition provide us with a good starting point, they cannot be directly used on camera captured images. This leads us to a new sub-field of research.
CBDAR is the international workshop with a special focus on camera captured documents. Presentation of up-to-date issues and techniques as well as discussions on future directions will boost research in this relatively new area. Participants will share experiences and problems in the area. In the past, the First CBDAR (2005) and the Second CBDAR (2007) were held at Seoul, Korea and Curitiba, Brazil, respectively, as a satellite conference of ICDAR.
