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 (UAB), Catalonia, Spain during July 26-29, 2009.
ICDAR'2009 is organized by the Document Analysis Group (DAG) of the Computer Vision Center (CVC). The CVC is an institution devoted to research and development in Computer Vision placed in the UAB. Thus, as hosting institutions, both the Computer Vision Center and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona support the event. In addition, ICDAR2009 is also supported by the AERFAI (Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis), the Spanish member society of the IAPR.
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. ICDAR'2009 will be the 10th Conference in the series.
