9 August 2010:    Acceptance notice
15 November 2010: Final manuscripts due

Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

Document Recognition

- document segmentation and layout analysis
- machine-printed and handwritten text recognition
- identification and recognition of tables or equations
- processing of degraded documents (e.g.faxed) or historical documents
- processing of multilingual documents
- filtering, enhancement, and compression techniques for document images
- performance metrics
- document degradation models
- web document analysis (including wikis and blogs)
- video-, camera-, and mobile phone-based OCR
- recognition of text from natural scene images
- graphics recognition (line-art, maps, and technical drawings)
- symbol, signature, and logo recognition
- document style recognition, writer identification
- document analysis and synthesis for digital publishing
  (template reuse and layout generation for new contents)
- system engineering, algorithms, and quality assurance methods
  towards large-scale digital libraries
- information extraction from forms
- document analysis techniques for electronic voting systems

Document Retrieval
- keyword spotting in document images
- approximate string matching algorithms for OCRed text
- summarization of text documents and imaged documents
- text categorization from imaged documents
- entity tagging using OCRed text
- retrieval of noisy text documents (messages, blogs, etc.)
- recovery and use of logical structure for retrieval
- cross-language and multi-lingual retrieval
- benchmarking and evaluation issues
- relevance feedback techniques for document retrieval
- impact of recognition accuracy on retrieval effectiveness

Submissions to Document Recognition and Retrieval XVIII should contain
abbreviated papers (5-7 pages). Submissions should be informative,
describe the problem that is addressed by the paper, the original
contribution in the paper, the way it relates to existing work, and
provide experimental/theoretical evaluation. Final manuscripts to be
published in the proceedings are expected to be 8-12 pages long. For
the fifth year, the Best Student Paper will be selected among papers
whose first authors are full-time students. For questions and more
information concerning the conference please check the conference
