  • be more understanding towards each other and discuss certain related issues in a much candid environment The second day was dedicated for a workshop about recent research activities It had two sessions First participants with accepted report papers got the opportunity to talk about their research Subsequently in a panel discussion session all participants were able to state their points of view and discuss together about selected topics of the two communities The first session focusing paper submissions about emerging approaches was divided into three sections namely General Aspects Features and Automatic Verification respectively Eight papers were accepted for presentation In the first section chaired by Marcus Liwicki two papers surveying the general aspects of signature verification and effects of data selection and sampling on signature verification were presented The second section chaired by Muhammad Imran Malik focused the classification of features into strong and weak commodities for signature verification and comparison of forensic and computing features for document retrieval The third section chaired by Michael Blumenstein contained four papers that presented different approaches for automatic identification and verification of handwriting The second session of the day was plenary discussion session It was one of the most important sessions of the entire two days activity Here major findings of the interaction between two communities i e forensic document examination community and pattern recognition community were summarized Various terms for specifying different types of handwriting forgeries were suggested and finalized as per suggestions from the two communities It was also agreed that computer science pattern recognition and forensic science people will use the definitions of terms agreed here Various important issues regarding future of AFHA were also discussed A detailed report about this plenary session will appear in the next IAPR newsletter In summary it was agreed to conduct the tutorial session every year along with the ICFHR conference and combined tutorial plus workshop every two years as a satellite workshop of ICDAR This two day combined workshop and tutorial session was a success according to the participants from both FHE and PR communities The FHEs found the event much better than expected It was a good opportunity for them to have a look under the hood of various automated handwriting analysis systems They appreciated the non mathematical explanations of different automated systems especially by Marcus Liwicki and Michael Blumenstein The PR experts expressed that now they feel themselves in a better position to work in line with the FHEs expectations Both were of the view point that they now felt less hesitant to use each other s experiences for possible future research and joint funding of projects This unique combination of tutorial and workshop was very beneficial for newcomers in the field as well as for persons who had interesting ongoing research results and wanted to discuss about them and other topics in a broad group consisting of experts from the document analysis field as well as experts from the forensic handwriting examination community Since this was the first workshop
