Hello everybody,

This issue has only one item. The deadline for submission of full
papers to the DAS'94 workshop is now over but it is still possible to
submit an abstract of remarks (deadline July 1st), if you want to
participate in this exciting event. So included is a call for

While we are at it, I remind you that the deadline for submission of
an extended abstract to the MVA'94 workshop is June 15th. See TC10
news #14 for the final call for papers of MVA'94.

International Association for Pattern Recognition Workshop on
Document Analysis Systems
Kaiserslautern, Germany
October 18-20, 1994

An intensive, three-day, single-track, 100%-participation workshop on
research and development of systems for the analysis of document images.

This workshop will take place during the week following the 12th
International Conference on Pattern Recognition (Jerusalem, Israel, October
9-13, 1994). Academic and industrial researchers, as well as end-users, are
encouraged to attend, and we hope to attract students as well as principal
investigators. We hope to supply scholarships for students.

Attendance will be limited to 75 people. Papers will be delivered in a
single-track format. Approximately half of the workshop will be devoted to
panel discussions and working groups. Participants are invited to propose
topics for these in advance. There will be ample opportunity for informal
discussion and socializing.

- descriptions of complete document image analysis systems
- applications to text, graphics, maps, logic diagrams, music, etc.

- interfaces to knowledge databases and post-processors
If time permits, related topics will be considered, such as:
- algorithms for symbol recognition
- layout segmentation

Submission of Abstracts

Abstracts of remarks, one page in length, will be delivered more briefly than
full papers (for which the deadline has passed), and will not be published
in the Proceedings unless requested. Authors should submit four copies of
each paper or abstract, cleanly typed and in English. If there are several
authors, please indicate which author will handle all correspondence.
