Two Papers Accepted for ICDAR 2019

Two papers have been accepted for this year’s International Conference on Document Image Analysis (ICDAR) and the accompanying GREC workshop on Graphics Image Recognition in Sydney. We will present recent work in which we trained deep fully convolutional neural networks for image segmentation on the Graphic Narrative corpus. David Dubray and Jochen Laubrock present a paper on speech balloon detection and segmentation in comics, which Jochen Laubrock and David Dubray extend to multi-class semantic segmentation.
