    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 and academia. They are sponsored by IAPR TC-10, a Technical Committee on Graphics Recognition, within the IAPR (International Association for Pattern Recognition).  The previous workshops in the GREC series are  

    • GREC'95 in University Park, Pennsylvania, USA, LNCS Volume 1072, Springer, 1996.
    • GREC'97 in Nancy, France, LNCS Volume 1389, Springer, 1998.
    • GREC'99 in Jaipur, India, LNCS volume 1941, Springer, 2000. 
    GREC 2001 was held just preceding ICDAR 2001, 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.
