Document Recognition and Retrieval XIX

5 Avril 2011

Catégorie : Conférence internationale

Part of the IS&T/SPIE 24th Annual Symposium on Electronic Imaging 2012 22-26 January 2012 • San Francisco, CA USA

We are pleased to announce the 19th Document Recognition and Retrieval Conference (DRR), to be held on 22-26 January 2012, in San Francisco, CA, USA. DRR is an international conference focused on state-of-the-art research in document recognition and retrieval, for offline, online and web documents. The conference is part of the Electronic Imaging Symposium, which brings together researchers from various backgrounds related to electronic imaging for an exciting research event. The conference will include oral/poster presentations, and invited papers. Accepted papers will be published in DRR Proceedings. For the sixth year, the Best Student Paper will be selected among papers whose first authors are full-time students. Additional details and updated information of this conference can be found at

Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

Document Recognition

  • Text recognition: machine-printed, handwritten documents; paper, tablet, camera, video sources
  • Writer/style identification, verification, adaptation
  • Graphics recognition: vectorization (e.g. for line-art, maps and technical drawings), signature, logo and graphical symbol recognition, figure, chart and graph recognition, diagrammatic notations (e.g. music, mathematical notation)
  • Document layout analysis and understanding: document and page region segmentation, form and table recognition, document understanding through combined modalities (e.g. speech and images)
  • Evaluation: performance metrics, document degradation models
  • Additional topics: document image filtering, enhancement and compression, document clustering and classification, machine learning (e.g. integration and optimization of recognition modules), historical and degraded document images (e.g. fax), multilingual document recognition, web page analysis (including wikis and blogs)

Document Retrieval

  • Indexing and Summarization : (noisy) text documents (messages, blogs, etc.), imaged documents, entity tagging from OCR'ed text, text categorization
  • Query Languages and Modalities: Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) for documents, keyword spotting, non-textual query-by-example (e.g. tables, figures, math), querying by document geometry and/or logical structure, approximate string matching algorithms for OCR'ed text, retrieval of noisy text documents (messages, blogs, etc.), cross and multi-lingual retrieval
  • Evaluation: relevance and performance metrics, evaluation protocols, benchmarking
  • Additional topics: relevance feedback, impact of recognition accuracy on retrieval performance, and digital libraries including systems engineering and quality assurance
