CALL FOR PAPERS


2nd International Workshop on

Historical Document Imaging and Recognition (HIP'13)

which will be held August 24, 2013
in conjunction with ICDAR 2013
at the Washington DC Omni Shoreham hotel in
Washington, DC, USA

http://www.cvc.uab.es/~vfrinken/HIP2013


Recent years have seen an increased effort to scan, index, and provide access to historical documents held in archives and special collections that are often inaccessible to the world in general. ICDAR 2009 featured both a half day tutorial and single technical paper session dedicated to historical document processing. Two years later at ICDAR 2011, the first workshop dedicated entirely on this topic was a great success with overwhelming participation. This year, a one-day workshop continues the effort to bring together researchers working with historical documents and is intended to be complementary and synergistic to the work in analysis and recognition featured in the main ICDAR sessions.

Workshop topics include (but are not limited too):

Imaging and Image Acquisition
- Imaging for fragile materials
- Multispectral imaging
- Camera-based/non-invasive acquisition
- Case studies/applications

Digital Archiving Considerations
- Compression issues
- Measuring essential resolution (color, spatial) and metadata
- Modeling of document image degradation Historical Collections
- Military records, personal journals, church records, medieval manuscripts, etc.
- Scientific, technical and educational documents
- Government archives, documents from the world cultural heritage, multi-language

Document Restoration/Improving readability
- Removing or minimizing damages, defects, ink-bleed
- Completing and filling in missing pieces based on context, prior knowledge, supporting documents, i.e. inpainting, etc.
- Machine-learning algorithms for enhancement based on example images
- Interactive tools from a user viewpoint
- Learning from user-directed image enhancement

Content Extraction (within the context of historical documents)
- Content-based retrieval
- Automated or semi-automated transcription
- Content recognition based on surrounding and supporting context
- Ontologies for modeling historical document content

Family History Documents and Genealogies
- Personal, Family, National and Historical Collections of Family Genealogy and Histories
- Extracting and linking names, dates, places, etc.
- Extracting, linking and piecing together personal and family histories and narratives
- Discovering historical social networks

Automated Classification, Grouping and Hyperlinking of Historical Documents
- Style identification (typography of printed text, handwriting style recognition for manuscript authentication or author identification...)
- Searching for Documents over the Internet
- On-line and web-based navigation within/among document images
- Searching/querying, retrieval, summarizing/condensing of document images
- Collecting, linking, analysis and search technologies
- Parallel tagging of images, transcripts, and other document layers
