GREC 2013 preliminary announcement

The TC-10 and GREC 2013 organizing committee are glad to announce that Tenth IAPR International Workshop on GRaphics Recognition will be held at Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, on August 20-21 2013.

As tradition wants it, GREC will be held close to the ICDAR conference and will try to keep its highly interactive, productive and open atmosphere, making it the place to be for discussing current trends of graphics recognition, for keeping up to date with recent advances, but also for discovering more prospective works and interacting with both young and more experienced researchers in the field. Transportation between both events will be organized.

All information is available at http://grec2013.loria.fr/GREC2013/ and the website will be updated regularly.

The call for papers is available at: http://grec2013.loria.fr/GREC2013/sites/default/files/Flyer%201.pdf

Important Dates

  • Paper submission: end of March, beginning of April 2013
  • Acceptance notification: mid May 2013
  • Camera ready: June 2013

As usual, all presented communications will be distributed as a booklet during the conference. Selected, extended versions of the presented papers will be published as post-conference proceedings.

Contests

As for previous editions, GREC organizers encourage graphics-related competitions, and call upon volunteers wanting to organize any of those (on previously existing themes or on new subjects) to contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Call for Datasets

We would like to remind you that the TC10 and TC11 Web sites always welcome contributions of new datasets or other resources related to the community. We would like to encourage all the TC11 members to submit such material to the TC11 for archiving. The availability of datasets, ground truth and performance evaluation tools online is not only good practice, but also a requirement for a field to progress. We would like make a special request to the organizers of recent and future competitions. Independently of whether you have the competition datasets and evaluation tools available through other Web sites, please consider archiving them with TC10 / TC11 as well. Web sites often go off-line and useful resources are frequently lost forever. Please check the TC10 site on information about how to submit datasets for archiving. http://iapr-tc10.univ-lr.fr/index.php/datasets-and-software Dimosthenis Karatzas and Bart Lamiroy TC-11 and TC-10 Dataset Curators

TC10 Website

Due to technical problems and lack of time, the current website has not changed for a while.
To avoid loss of information during the data migration to the new website, some functionalities have been disabled few months ago.

The new TC10 website will be online in fews days. It will include :

  • newsletter signup / subscription management
  • the possibility to submit some news for registred people
  • a forum
  •  ....

A message will be sent to the current mailing list to notify you of the launch of the new website.

Registered people will be asked to verify that their account is still accessible.

This newsletter is sent to the mailing list that we try to keep up to date, but many email addresses don't exist anymore.

The next newsletter will be send both to registered people and to the "old" mailing list. But the next one will be send only to registered people.

So don't forget to register as soon as the new website will be online to go on to receive information about TC10 community.

Jean-Christophe Burie,
TC10 webmaster
