Document Analysis Algorithm Contributions in End-to-End Applications
* Description
This contest aims to provide a metric giving indications on the
influence of individual specific document analysis tools to overall
end-to-end applications. Contestants are provided with a full, working
pipeline operating on a raw document page image and proceeding to
extract some final information. The pipeline is built with clearly
identified analysis stages (e.g. binarization, skew detection, layout
analysis, OCR ...) that have a formalized input and
output. Contestants are invited to contribute their own algorithms as
an alternative to one or more of the initially provided stages and
evaluation will be done on the overall impact of the contributed
algorithm to the final (end of pipeline) result.

Handwritten Document Image Binarization Contest
* Description
In H-DIBCO 2010 (Handwritten Document Image Binarization Contest), the
general objective is to record recent advances in handwritten document
image binarization using established evaluation performance
measures. We will create a benchmarking dataset that is representative
of the potential problems which are challenging in the binarization
process and use a common evaluation platform in order to test and
compare the submitted algorithms for handwritten document image
binarization.

Historical Document Layout Analysis Competition
* Description
This paper presents an objective comparative evaluation of layout
analysis methods for scanned historical documents. It describes the
competition (modus operandi, dataset and evaluation methodology) held
in the context of ICDAR2011 and the International Workshop on
Historical Document Imaging and Processing (HIP2011), presenting the
results of the evaluation of four submitted methods. A commercial
state-of-the-art system is also evaluated for comparison. Two
scenarios are reported in this paper, one evaluating the ability of
methods to accurately segment regions and the other evaluating the
whole pipeline of segmentation and region classification (with a text
extraction goal). The results indicate that there is a convergence to
a certain methodology with some variations in the approach. However,
there is still a considera-ble need to develop robust methods that
deal with the idiosyn-crasies of historical documents.
