About ICDAR-OST 2019
The 2nd ICDAR Workshop on Open Services and Tools for Document Analysis (ICDAR-OST) is a one-day event which aims at promoting open tools, software, open services (for processing, evaluation or visualization), as well as facilitating public dataset usage, in the domain of Document Image Analysis Research, building on the experience of our community and of other ones.
Such tools, softwares, services, formats or datasets should observe the principles of being reusable (I can use it on my data), transferable (I can use it on my premises) and reproducible (I can obtain the same results).
The accepted contributions are presented during interactive pitch and demo sessions, enabling authors to advertise their work, identify potential issues and solutions in their approach, as well as igniting collaboration with other participants. While this is encouraged, releasing tools with a free/open-source license is not required.
