Information about GREC 2001
GREC 2001 is a single-track
2-day workshop on methods and systems for graphics recognition. Graphics
recognition is a branch of document image analysis that
focuses on the recognition of
two-dimensional notations such as engineering drawings, maps, mathematical
notation, music notation, tables, and chemical structure diagrams. The
GREC workshops provide an excellent opportunity for researchers at all
levels of experience to share insights into graphics recognition methods.
The workshops enjoy strong participation from researchers in both industry
They are sponsored by IAPR
TC-10, a Technical Committee on Graphics Recognition, within the
(International Association for Pattern Recognition).
The previous workshops in the GREC series are
GREC 2001 was held just preceding
the 6th International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (Seattle,
Washington, September 10-13, 2001).

The workshop city, Kingston,
Ontario, is located at the eastern end of the Great Lakes,
where Lake Ontario empties
into the St. Lawrence River. Kingston is the home of Queen's
University. The conference hotel, the Holiday
Inn Kingston-Waterfront, offers beautiful views of Lake Ontario and
the Rideau Canal. The banquet on September 7 featured a three hour cruise
of the famed 1000 Islands, a popular vacation destination.
