Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

We are pleased to announce the 10th IAPR International Workshop on Document Analysis Systems will take place at the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, during March 27-29th, 2012. The 10th IAPR Workshop on Document Analysis  Systems will build on the tradition established by past DAS workshops held  in Kaiserslautern, Germany (1994); Malvern, PA (1996); Nagano, Japan (1998); Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2000); Princeton, NJ (2002); Florence, Italy (2004);  Nelson, New Zealand (2006); Nara, Japan (2008); and Cambridge USA (2010). As usual DAS is a 100% participation, single-track workshop with guest speakers, oral, poster, and demo sessions as well as working group discussions. The workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE. After the workshop, it is planned that selected papers will be chosen for a journal special issue.

The program committee invites the submission of original and unpublished contributions for inclusion in the workshop. All papers and presentations will be in English. Topics to be dealt with include but are not limited to:

  • Document image analysis (DIA) systems

 Authors are also invited to submit short (poster) papers for late-breaking results and for demo presentations. Short papers should be at most 2 pages in two-column IEEE format and the short papers may not be included in the proceedings.
