TC10 News #78
November 18, 2006

Message to the TC10 community at large.

Dear TC10 members and friends,

Welcome to issue #78 of TC10 News.

First of all, as the newly appointed TC10 Chair, I’d like to thank Josep Llados and Dorothea Blostein for their great leadership and efforts for our community in the last four years. I will work with Jean-Marc Ogier closely to follow their successes and try our best to make our community consistently active, productive, and innovative.

TC10 encounters a few changes and challenges now. First of all, we decide to hold GREC2007 at the ICDAR2007 site. Josep, Mean-Marc, and I are still struggling and negotiating with the ICDAR organizers on some issues. We will finalize and send out the CFP soon. Second, we are planning to let IAPR to host our TC10 website but the details have not been finalized. Third, the paper review process may also introduce some reforms, and finally, we would like to actually launch the forum and make it active. I will let you know more details later. All these tasks and plans will rely on your active participation. So, your feedback/comments/suggestions will be encouraged and appreciated. But let me just remind you that, please first reply to me only if you don’t want to receive many MAILER-DAEMON responses since this mailing list may contain some invalid email addresses. Based on your opinions we will make final decisions and work out a concrete workplan.

From now on, you will receive regular TC-10 newsletters from me, most of them contain some information of interest among our community, e.g., coming events and CFPs.
