About these proceedings


This book contains refereed and improved papers presented at the 6th IAPR Workshop on Graphics Recognition (GREC 2005). This year is the tenth anniversary of GREC, which was started in 1995 and has been held every 2 years: GREC 1995 in Penn State University, USA (LNCS Volume 1072, Springer, 1996); GREC 1997 in Nancy, France (LNCS Volume 1389, Springer, 1998); GREC 1999 in Jaipur, India (LNCS Volume 1941, Springer, 2000); GREC 2001 in Kingston, Canada (LNCS Volume 2390, Springer, 2002); and GREC 2003 in Barcelona, Spain (LNCS Volume 3088, Springer, 2004). GREC is the main event of IAPR TC-10 (the Technical Committee on Graphics Recognition within the International Association for Pattern Recognition) and provides an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners at all levels of experience to meet colleagues and to share new ideas and knowledge about graphics recognition methods. Graphics recognition is a particular field in the domain of document analysis, which combines pattern recognition and image processing techniques for the analysis of any kind of graphical information in documents from either paper or electronic formats. In its 10 year history, the graphics recognition community has extended its research topics from the analysis and understanding of graphic documents (including engineering drawings vectorization and recognition), to graphics-based information retrieval and symbol recognition, to new media analysis, and even stepped into research areas of other communities, e. g.
