ICDAR2005 Page Segmentation Competition
The ICDAR2005 Page Segmentation competition was completed in August, 2005. Page Segmentation is of fundamental
importance among Layout Analysis steps and has been (and still is) relatively well researched. The motivation of the
competition was to evaluate existing approaches using a more realistic dataset and an objective performance analysis
system. For more information on the competition, including results, please see the published paper.
The ICDAR2005 Page Segmentation competition follows the successful running of two previous competitions by the
same organisers, the ICDAR2001 Newspaper Page
Segmentation Contest and the ICDAR2003 Page Segmentation
Competition. The ICDAR2005 Page Segmentation Competition is one of several competitions which took place for the
ICDAR2005 Conference. For more information on the other ICDAR2005
competitions, please see the main ICDAR2005
Competitions web page.
The ICDAR2005 competition has now ended, but the organisers hope that another will take place for ICDAR2007. Please check here for updates nearer to the time.
