Call for papers for the special issue: "Historical documents and
automatic text recognition ». [reminder]

Editors : Ariane Pinche and Peter Stokes

Journal of Data Mining and Digital Humanities

With this special issue of the Journal of Data Mining and Digital
Humanities (JDMDH), we wish to bring together in one single volume
several experiments, projects and reflections related to automatic text
recognition on historical documents.

To address these issues, we propose the following three axes:

- Axis 1: Sources, constitution and sharing of training data.
- Axis 2: Machine learning
- Axis 3: Feedback and data exploitation

This special issue aims to provide an overview of the use of HTR or OCR
on historical documents, as its uses multiply and more and more research
projects and cultural heritage institutions become interested in it.
Through the /Journal of Data Mining and Digital Humanities/, we are
delighted to offer an opportunity to all those who wish to make their
own contribution to the field or to share their experience by exposing
their successes, their questions and their difficulties, or even
failure. By publishing this special issue, we hope to present a state of
the art of the uses of automatic handwriting recognition today.

Complete description at the following address :

Submission details and deadlines:

   *     The papers are expected to be between 6 and 8 pages for short paper
     or between 12 and 15 pages for long papers.
