Call For Papers

We are pleased to announce the 3rd International workshop on Automated Forensic Handwriting Analysis to be held as a satellite workshop of the 2014 joint meeting of the American Society of Questioned Document Examiners (ASQDE) and the Australasian Society of Forensic Document Examiners (ASFDE).

The AFHA 2014 will continue the approach of bringing together researchers in the fields of automated signature verification and handwriting analysis and experts from the forensic handwriting examination community. The program will be organized in a single-track 2-day workshop. It will comprise several sessions dedicated to specific topics related to automated forensic handwriting analysis.

For each session, there will be an invited presentation describing the state of the art and stating the open questions for the topic of the session. This includes a description of the forensic science point of view and examples of real casework as well as a summary of important approaches in the area of automated handwriting examination. On the second day, a workshop about recent research activities will be held. First, participants with accepted report papers will get the opportunity to talk about their research. Subsequently, in a panel discussion session, all participants will be able to state their points of view and discuss together about selected topics of the community.

Coverage of Topics

We encourage the participants to submit reports (up to 5 pages, IEEE format) on ongoing research as well as papers on novel directions. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Human versus system performance
Handwriting features
Taxonomy of features
Automated signature verification
Automated handwriting verification and identification
Extraction of movement order features from offline signatures
Allograph matching and clustering
Signature clustering or classification
Forensic handwriting examination
Forensic signature examination
Determining the strength of evidence
Bayesian statistics and Bayesian networks
Within writer and between writer variation

The proceedings will be made available as Open Access on the web before the workshop starts. The proceedings will be distributed to attendees as a workshop booklet.
Important Dates:
Paper submission: May 1, 2014
Acceptance notification: June 1, 2014
Camera-ready submission: July 1, 2014
