eScripta at ICDAR2019

The eScripta team has recently returned from the International Conference of Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR) which was held this year in Sydney. As well as the main conference, there were also very interesting and useful pre-conference workshops, including HIP (the 5th International Workshop on Historical Document Imaging) and ICDAR-OST (the 2nd International Workshop on Open Services and Tools for Document Analysis). The eScripta team gave two papers:

Both papers were very well received, and we also had a lot of interesting discussions with other researchers in the field. We hope some new collaborations will come out of this, and certainly we have many new ideas, so watch this space to see what comes out of it all!
