Call For Papers



Document Recognition and Retrieval XXII (DRR 2015)

San Francisco, February 11-12, 2015

The Submission deadline has been extended to 28 July 2014.

Document Recognition and Retrieval (DRR) is one of the leading international conferences devoted to current research in document analysis, recognition and retrieval. The 22nd Document Recognition and Retrieval Conference is being held as part of the IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging Symposium taking place in San Francisco, California, USA. The conference venue and hotel will be the Hilton San Francisco Union Square. DRR specifically will take place February 11-12, 2015.

The Conference Chairs and Program Committee invite all researchers working on document recognition and retrieval to submit original research papers. Papers are presented in oral and poster sessions at the conference, along with invited talks by leading researchers. Accepted papers will be published by the SPIE in the conference proceedings. Papers will also be indexed by DBLP. At the conference a Best Student Paper Award will be presented. Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the areas below.


* Text recognition: machine-printed documents, handwritten documents; paper, tablet, camera, and video sources
* Writer/style identification, verification, and adaptation
* Graphics recognition: vectorization (e.g. for line-art, maps and technical drawings), signature, logo and graphical symbol recognition, figure, chart and graph recognition, and diagrammatic notations (e.g. music, mathematical
* Document layout analysis and understanding: document and page region segmentation, form and table recognition, and document understanding through combined modalities (e.g. speech and images)
* Evaluation: performance metrics, document degradation models, data collection, benchmarking, ground-truthing
* 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, and web page analysis (including wikis and blogs).


* Indexing and summarization: text documents (messages, blogs, etc.), imaged documents, entity tagging from OCR output, and 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 output, retrieval of noisy text documents (messages, blogs, etc.), cross and multi-lingual retrieval
* Discovery and browsing: pattern discovery, trend mining, topic modeling and analysis, clustering
* Evaluation: relevance and performance metrics, evaluation protocols, and benchmarking
* Additional topics: relevance feedback, impact of recognition accuracy on retrieval performance, and digital libraries including systems engineering and quality assurance.


* 28 July 2014, 11:59pm PST: Submission deadline: Full Paper for Review – Deadline extended
* 7 October 2014: Author notifications
* 1 December 2014: Submission deadline: Manuscript for On-site Proceedings
* 11-12 February 2015: Conference


Standard minimum paper length for all SPIE events is 6 pages. However, for DRR, we strongly encourage the authors to submit longer papers (ideally 8-12 pages). The review process will take into account both the quality and the depth of development of the scientific and experimental content of a paper. Papers should clearly identify the problem addressed in the work, identify the original contribution(s) of the paper, relate the paper to previous work, justify and document the methods of the paper, and provide substantive experimental and/or theoretical evaluation. The program committee will favor papers that take advantage of the opportunity to develop, argue, and provide compelling experimental evidence.

Submissions should be prepared and submitted through the SPIE conference website by following directions given here:
