The Computer Science and Engineering department at Lehigh University's P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science played host this month to the 10th annual IAPR International Workshop on Graphics Recognition.
GREC 2013, held on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 20-21, brought together the opportunity for researchers and practitioners of all levels from across the globe to meet colleagues to share their knowledge and participate in a discussion about graphics recognition methods.
Graphics Recognition is a subfield of document image analysis that deals with graphical entities across several types of objects, including engineering drawings, maps, architectural plans, musical scores and mathematical notations.
The program, intended to serve as a single-track workshop over two days, included a number of sessions related to the use of graphics in document analysis and recognition, including:
- Raster-to-vector techniques
- Recognition of graphic symbols in charts, diagrams, and drawings
- Interpretation of engineering drawings, maps, tables, and other graphical documents
- 3-D models from multiple 2-D views (line drawings)
- Digital ink processing
Held every two years, GREC returned to the United States for the first time since its inaugural workshop in 1995, which also took place in the Keystone state at Penn State University.
