In conjunction with ICDAR 2011
Beijing Friendship Hotel -
The organizers of AND 2011 and MOCR 2011 have decided to merge the two
workshops for this year. The combined event, which will still take place
just before ICDAR on Sept. 17, will be called the "Joint Workshop on
Multilingual OCR and Analytics for Noisy Unstructured Text Data"
(J-MOCR-AND). The two topics are naturally related and we look forward
to an exciting exchange of new work and research ideas.
Invited talk: "Multilingual and Noisy Data Challenges in Large-Scale Book Scanning" Ashok C. Popat
Workshop presentations (where available)
Online proceedings in ACM Digital Library.
