Call For Papers


Workshop on Advanced analysis and recognition of parliamentary corpora (ARPC)

The ARPC organizing committee invites papers for the workshop to be held in physical format during the ICDAR 2024 conference (August 30 – September 4, 2024) in Athens, Greece ( The exact date of the ARPC workshop will be communicated soon.

Workshop Context

Data-driven insights from archives have the potential to steer academic research in a variety of fields. This workshop attempts to address the growing importance of employing advanced recognition and analytical methods and tools to decode the complexities within legislative and administrative documents of parliamentary origin. The workshop will deep dive into cutting-edge OCR techniques for parliamentary corpora. Further attention will be placed into recognizing patterns, extracting meaningful insights and understanding the intricate dimensions of contemporary and historical parliamentary discourse. The relevance of this topic lies in its potential to bridge previously isolated domains of research, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration. By connecting history, political science, and linguistics, participants will unlock a richer understanding of legislative evolution, political trends, and linguistic nuances embedded in parliamentary proceedings. A keynote presentation will open the workshop, followed by a couple of sessions dedicated to specific topics related to the analysis and recognition of parliamentary corpora. Each session will be concluded by a structured panel discussion. The organization of the ARPC workshop is supported by the Hellenic OCR Team.

We encourage the authors to submit papers on the topics detailed below.


- The recognition of polytonic Greek fonts

- Recognition of mixed text (printed and handwritten)

- Parliamentary discourse analysis

- Historical trends in parliamentary language use

- Integration of linguistic and political science methodologies in OCR

- Cross-lingual OCR challenges in parliamentary texts

- Machine learning approaches for semantic analysis of parliamentary proceedings

- Ethical considerations in the digitization and analysis of parliamentary records

- Developing standardized formats for parliamentary data preservation

- The role of OCR technology in enhancing public access to parliamentary archives

- Comparative analysis of parliamentary rhetoric across different eras

- The impact of digital humanities tools on legislative studies

- Application of Natural Language Processing techniques in political discourse analysis

- Automated categorization and indexing of parliamentary documents

- Challenges and solutions in digitizing non-standard parliamentary texts.

Paper Tracks

There is both a standard conference paper track and a journal track at ICDAR 2024; details regarding the journal track may be found in a separate Call for Papers on the conference website, ICDAR 2024 will follow a double blind review process. Authors should not include their names and affiliations anywhere in the manuscript. Authors should also ensure that their identity is not revealed indirectly by citing their previous work in the third person and omit acknowledgements until the camera-ready version.

Important Dates

1 February 2024 – Paper submission deadline

15 April 2024 – Paper acceptance notification

30 April 2024 – Camera-ready paper

Date TBC – Workshop

Submission Guidelines & Enquiries

All proposals should be submitted electronically via an easychair online submission form: . Enquiries should be sent to . The submitted papers will respect the same policy and conditions of ICDAR 2023 conference papers. Papers should be formatted according to the instructions and style files provided by Springer. Papers accepted for the conference will be allocated up to 15 pages (usually not counting references) in the proceedings. Submissions are expected to be in the range of 10-15 pages. Each accepted paper requires at least one author to perform a full registration. The registration fee for only workshop participants will be discounted.


ICDAR 2024 proceedings will be published under the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. This provides the proceedings of the conference and the workshops with an excellent online accessibility, including free access to SpringerLink via links on the conference website during one year after the publication and free access for everyone in SpringerLink four years after the publication.
