12th IAPR International Workshop on Document Analysis Systems, April 11-14, 2016, Island of Santorini, Greece

Further information and information about the submission can be found here: http://www.primaresearch.org/das2016/

About the conference
DAS 2016 is the 12th edition of the 100% participation single-track IAPR sponsored workshop focusing on system-level issues and approaches in document analysis and recognition. The workshop comprises invited speaker presentations, oral, poster, tutorial and demo sessions as well as working group discussions.

DAS 2016 will be organized on the island of Santorini, Greece (April 11-14, 2016). Santorini was created from a volcanic eruption that left it with volcanic cliffs overlooking a black and red coast, dazzling against the turquoise Mediterranean. Santorini is one of the most popular, beautiful and unique islands in the world since it combines a cosmopolitan atmosphere, spectacular scenery of deep blue sea and whitewashed houses, breathtaking sunsets, ancient sites, world-class restaurants and an active volcano.

Submission Types
DAS2016 will include both long and short papers, posters and demonstrations of working or prototype systems. All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process with a minimum of 3 reviews considering the originality of work, the quality of research or analysis of experience, the relevance to document analysis systems, and quality of presentation of ideas.

Full Papers
Full papers should describe complete works of original research. Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum, up to 6 pages length.

Short Papers
Short papers provide an opportunity to report on research in progress, to present novel positions on document analysis systems. Authors may submit short papers (up to 2 pages in length). Short papers will also undergo review and will appear in an extra booklet, not in the official DAS2016 proceedings.

DAS2016 seeks public demonstrations of novel systems, to be presented to the workshop as a whole during breaks between paper sessions. Prospective demonstrators should submit a two-page summary of the system to be demonstrated. Demonstration proposals will undergo review and summaries of accepted demonstrations will appear in the extra DAS2016 booklet, as in the case of short papers.
