6th International Workshop on Historical Document Imaging and Processing (HIP’21)
September 5-6, 2021, Lausanne, Switzerland
September 5-6, 2021, Lausanne, Switzerland
There have been increased efforts worldwide to digitize our cultural heritage conveyed in historical documents. In this workshop, we bring together researchers from various fields working on document image acquisition, restoration, analysis, indexing, and retrieval to make these documents accessible in digital libraries.
It is the sixth satellite workshop of ICDAR dedicated to this topic, following HIP’11 in Beijing, HIP’13 in Washington, HIP’15 in Nancy, HIP’17 in Kyoto and HIP’19 in Sydney that were a significant success with strong participation. HIP’21 will be held on 5-6 September 2021, co-located with the main ICDAR2021 Conference in Lausanne, Switzerland. We assume that the registration for the main conference will also cover workshop attendance (to be confirmed).
HIP aims to provide the researchers with a forum that is complementary and synergetic to the main sessions at ICDAR on document analysis and recognition. The manifold topics addressed in this workshop encompass the entire processing chain from image acquisition to information extraction. We include the growing importance of machine learning in this processing chain, such as convolutional and recurrent neural networks, and we encourage the presentation of entire projects in the context of historical documents.
The workshop is planned for 1½-days with oral presentations, a keynote talk, and a guided tour. Each submission will undergo peer-review and distinguished submissions will be presented orally on the first day. On the second day, we plan a half-day visit to a science museum, library or similar venue (to be confirmed).
The organizers are committed to holding a safe and secure HIP’21 in the face of the current worldwide health crisis arising from COVID-19. In the event it becomes necessary, HIP’21 will be held with options for remote “virtual” participation. All accepted papers will be published in the HIP’21 proceedings, whether or not the conference takes place physically.
Submission Deadline: May 17, 2021
Acceptance Notification: June 28, 2021
Camera Ready: July 12, 2021
Workshop: September 5-6, 2021
It is our pleasure to announce that the 6th International Workshop on Historical Document Imaging and Processing (HIP’21) will be held in conjunction with ICDAR2021, on September 5-6, 2021 in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The workshop brings together researchers working with historical documents and intends to be complementary and synergistic to the work in analysis and recognition featured in the main sessions of ICDAR, the premier international forum for researchers and practitioners in the document analysis community.
Submissions are received until May 17, 2021 via Easychair and undergo review by the members of the Program Committee. Papers must not exceed 6 pages in length. It is not required to anonymize the submission, but authors are welcome to do so if they prefer it. Acceptance notifications will be sent out June 28, 2021.
Accepted camera-ready submissions should be sent by July 12, 2021 as PDF via email to email@example.com for publication in the ACM Digital Library (see also the Proceedings of previous editions).
Authors should use the current ACM SIG Conference Proceedings Template to prepare their papers. Note that ACM has created a new LaTeX template and updated the existing Word templates. Authors also need to apply the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS) according to the ACM SIG Conference Proceedings Template.
Workshop topics include (but are not limited too):
Imaging and Image Acquisition
Digital Archiving Considerations
Document Restoration/Improving readability
Information Extraction (within the context of historical documents)
Family History Documents and Genealogies
Automated Classification, Grouping and Hyperlinking of Historical Documents
Digital Humanities applications of document analysis and recognition
For work focusing on handwriting/paleography, we recommend you have a look at IWCP2021.
Accepted papers will be allocated 20-minute time slots (15 minutes oral presentation + 5 minutes questions).
