SCOPE

The purpose of this symposium is to present results of state-of-the-art
research and to encourage the exchange of ideas in the general field of
automatic extraction of information from images of printed documents.
Papers are solicited on all aspects of document image analysis and
information retrieval, both theoretical and applied, with particular
emphasis on:

 Document Analysis:

 High-Accuracy Transcription
 Postprocessing of OCR Results
 Keyword Search in Textual Images
 Multilingual OCR, Language ID, etc.
 Geometric and Logical Layout Analysis
 Recognition of Forms, Tables and Equations
 Models of Document Image Degradation
 Methods for Performance Evaluation

 Information Retrieval:

 Full-Text Retrieval
 Retrieval from OCR'ed Text
 Image and Multimedia Retrieval
 Text Categorization
 Retrieval from Structured Documents
 Language-Specific Influences on Retrieval
 Evaluation of IR Systems
 Text Representation

Papers on subjects in the intersection of these two areas will be given
priority.
