  • quite high One important new drive for electronic ink processing is the increasing capacity and popularity of hand held computers of all forms Issues in pen based interface design is attracting renewed attention especially in the context of multi modal user interfaces for mobile devices and collaboration and document annotation using such devices InkXML is in the works and TC11 can play an active role to publicize this effort and the related new research activities 4 Vintage documents Digital Library Another area that has attracted increasing attention from this field lately is the analysis of vintage documents related to the Digital Library effort This offers unique opportunities as well as challenges for DIA but has not been well explored so far by this community Again TC11 could help by bringing more awareness to this area through the official website September 2002 The historic town Niagara on the Lake at the mouth of the Niagara River was hosting the 8th International Workshop on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition from 6th 8th August 2002 The main objective of this workshop is to stimulate contacts between researchers and practitioners and to motivate in depth discussions on research results and frontiers in the field of handwriting recognition and analysis Even after more than thirty years of research in handwriting recognition with systems operating in actual practice and products being available on the consumer market many scientific challenges will remain to be solved This year s workshop sessions were focused on learning methods classifier design multiple classifiers on line off line handwriting recognition word recognition pen computing document applications postal applications signature verification and writer identification as well as forensic document examination Since 1990 the workshop is being organized as satellite event to the International Conference on Pattern Recognition ICPR which was hosted in Que bec City Canada this year Remembering the discussions for a suitable IWFHR workshop location four years ago there were strong arguments for Niagara on the Lake with its natural beauty and tourist s attractions Moreover the region offers a deep insight into the culture and history of North America Niagara on the Lake is being always a place where Canadians and US citizens meet So it seems to be also symbolic that the workshop was co chaired by S N Srihari from Center of Excellence for Document Analysis and Recognition CEDAR State University of New York at Buffalo United States and M Cheriet from E cole de Technologie Supe rieure Canada Of course not only the magnificent workshop location but also the excellent scientific program attracted an international audience All together 144 university members as well as representatives of governmental organizations and industrial entities coming from 21 countries attended the workshop During three memorable days participants followed 51 oral presentations and three panels In the course of three poster sessions with 36 presentations the possibilities for individual discussions with the poster presenters was given Among the papers that were accepted for presentations the international program committee selected the two best papers
