CfP: Computational Systems for Ancient Written Artefacts

DAS 2022 is the 15th edition of the IAPR sponsored workshop focusing on system-level issues and approaches in document analysis and recognition. Typically, the workshop covers invited speaker talks along with oral, poster, tutorial, demo sessions and working group discussions. DAS 2022 will be hosted by La Rochelle University (France) on May 22-25, 2022.

A special session will be devoted on May 22 to Computational Systems for Ancient Written Artefacts (CSAWA).

The orgonizers of this special session welcome the submission of original, previously unpublished work on computational systems (software tools, web services, etc.) developed to analyse historical documents which have been made accessible to other researchers and scholars. Submissions of previously published systems need to present significant improvements and novel results on actual research questions using ancient written artefacts. These systems need to be freely available with or without open-source code on repositories like github, and sufficiently complete and documented to be used and tested.

Participants are encouraged to prepare a demonstration of their systems in addition to their oral presentations. This session will favour submissions that have been applied to actual use cases from manuscript research or developed in a close collaboration with scholars.

The deadline for submission : January 4

To all interested by the topic, please note that the session will be held in hybrid format with options for online participation. 

 Any question should be addressed to Dr. Isabelle Marthot-Santaniello ( and Dr. Hussein Mohammed (
