Appel à contribution – Historical documents and automatic text recognition

Call for papers for the special issue: « Historical documents and automatic text recognition ».

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together in one single volume several experiments, projects and reflections related to automatic text recognition on historical documents.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This special issue aims to provide an overview of the use of HTR or OCR on historical documents, as its uses multiply and more and more research projects and cultural heritage institutions become interested in it.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.
