Handbook of Document Image Processing and Recognition.pdf
The Handbook of Document Image Processing and Recognition is a comprehensive resource on the latest methods and techniques in document image processing and recognition. Each chapter provides a clear overview of the topic followed by the state of the art of techniques used -- including elements of comparison between them -- along with supporting references to archival publications, for those interested in delving deeper into topics addressed. Rather than favor a particular approach, the text enables the reader to make an informed decision for their specific problems.
Dr. David Doermann is Senior Research Scientist and Director of the Laboratory for Language and Media Processing at the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, College Park, MD, USA. He is also President and co-founder of Applied Media Analysis, Inc., and Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal on Document Analysis and Recognition. Dr. Karl Tombre is Professor at Universite de Lorraine, France, one of the lagest French universities, where he currently is vice-president in charge of partnerships and international affairs. He was one of the founders, and for many years an editor-in-chief of the International Journal on Document Analysis and Recognition. From 2007 to 2012 he was director of the Inria Nancy - Grand Est research center, a large public research center in computer science and applied mathematics. From 2006 to 2008 he was President of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).
