Report on the Second Symbol Recognition Contest
Following the experience of the first edition of the international symbol recognition contest held during GREC’03 in Barcelona, a second edition has been organized during GREC’05. In this paper, first, we bring to mind the general principles of both contests before presenting more specifically the details of this last edition. In particular, we describe the dataset used in the contest, the methods that took part in it, and the analysis of the results obtained by the participants. We conclude with a synthesis of the contributions and lacks of these two editions, and some leads for the organization of a forthcoming contest.
