The 13th edition of the 100% participation single-track IAPR sponsored workshop focusing on system-level issues and approaches in document analysis and recognition is held at the TU Wien, organized by the Computer Vision Lab (CVL) with Robert Sablatnig and Florian Kleber as the co-chairs of the event.
This workshop continues a tradition of bringing together researchers, academics and professionals from all over the world in the research field of Document Analysis Systems. The DAS 2018 particularly encourages the interaction of research students and developing academics with the more established academic community in an informal setting to present and to discuss new and current work. Their contributions help to make the workshop series as outstanding as it has been. Of the 131 submissions received in an open call for papers, 77 were accepted for presentation at the workshop (58.8%). Of these, 32 papers were designated for oral presentation (24.4%) and 45 for poster presentation (34.4%). In this workshop, authors from 32 different countries are represented. The final program consists of 9 oral sessions, two poster sessions and the discussion group sessions. This workshop is one of four important document analysis events worldwide, held biannually and the first time in Europe.
