The EU-funded IMPACT ('Improving access to text') project will hold a conference on optical character recognition (OCR) in mass digitisation projects on 6 and 7 April in The Hague, Netherlands.

The conference will provide an opportunity to exchange views with researchers and suppliers in the OCR field, as well as present some preliminary results from the first year of the IMPACT project.

The first day will be dedicated to new advances in OCR technology, such as collaborative correction and adaptive OCR techniques, a possible way forward for future large-scale digitisation programmes. The second day will focus on current and future challenges facing OCR technology, such as image enhancement and linguistic issues that occur when digitising historical text material.

Both days will feature key speakers from outside of the project, in addition to experts from the IMPACT consortium.For further information, please visit:
