(along with ICDAR 2009)
Noisy unstructured text data is ubiquitous in real-world communications. Text produced by processing signals for human use such as printed/handwritten documents, spontaneous speech, camera-captured scene images, are prime examples.
AND 2009 is a workshop devoted to issues arising from the need to contend with noisy inputs, the impact noise can have on downstream applications, and the demands it places on document analysis. The Third Workshop on Analytics for Noisy Unstructured Text Data will build on two previous successful AND workshops held in 2007 (in conjunction with the 20th Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence [IJCAI]) and in 2008 (in conjunction with the 31st Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference).
Christina Giannone won the IAPR Best Student Paper Award.
The proceedings of AND 2009 are available on ACM Digital library.
