[InetBib] CfP for JLCL Volume 33, Number 1: Special issue on automatic text and layout recognition

The Journal of Language Technology and Computational Linguistics
(JLCL,http://www.jlcl.org) is calling for contributions for a
forthcoming special issue on automatic text and layout recognition.

Together with its predecessor, the LDV-Forum, JLCL looks back on more
than 30 years of publishing outstanding contributions in the field of
computational linguistics and language technology. Today, JLCL is an
open access medium and serves as the primary publication platform of
the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language

For the upcoming issue, researchers, archivists, and librarians are
invited to submit papers about original research work as well as
surveys in the fields automatic text and layout recognition including
the following topics:

* Optical character recognition (OCR), e.g.,
   + Definition and theoretical considerations of recognition models
   + Training OCR models
   + Deep learning for text recognition
* Handwritten text recognition (HTR)
* Optical layout recognition (OLR), i.e.,
   + Page segmentation
   + Region/Segment classification
   + Document analysis
   + Line segmentation
* Text correction, e.g.,
   + Lexicon-based approaches
   + Statistical language modelling
* Image preprocessing, e.g.,
   + Binarization
   + Deskewing/dewarping
   + Cropping
* Tool descriptions, e.g.,
   + Full-fledged OCR/OLR workflows
   + Tools for manual transcription, GT creation
   + (Unified) interfaces to OCR/OLR tools


Although there is no strict page limit, the length of the manuscript
should be between 10-25 pages. They have to be submitted in PDF format
toinfo@xxxxxxxx. The usage of JLCL's LaTeX templates
(https://github.com/adbar/jlcl-style) is highly encouraged. For
camera-ready versions it is obligatory. Potential submitters are
kindly requested to consult the 'Guidelines for authors'
(http://www.jlcl.org/resource/JLCL_Guidelines_for_authors.pdf). If you
have any questions please contact wuerzner_at_bbaw.de

Important dates

Deadline for submissions is the 28th February 2018. We intend to
ensure a fast and transparent reviewing process. The issue is expected
to be published in summer 2018.
