This book contains the proceedings of the International Workshop on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition held in Montreal, April 2-3, 1990. This workshop has been organized with the help of Dr. Shunji Mori (Ricoh R. & D. Center, Yokohama), Prof. R. Plamondon (Ecole Polytechnique, Montreal), Prof. J. C. Simon (Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussees). Prof. S. N. Srihari (State University of New York. Buffalo), and Dr. C. Tappert (IBM Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights). The goal of this Workshop is to stimulate research in handwriting recognition. It includes the most active research areas related to the design and implementation of intelligent systems that recognize, on-line and off-line, isolated and connected, handwritten characters, words, and signatures. In order to create a cosy environment for discussions among the participants, this workshop is limited to about 25 attendees. With the help of several authorities and distinguished scientists of this field, the Program Committee of IWFHR organized a well-balanced program containing 8 invited papers and a selection of 9 submitted papers covering the most advanced topics in handwriting recognition.

One important feature that distinguishes this workshop from the others is the publication in its proceedings, the brief biographies of all authors, a description of the data they need, and a list of their recent publications related to handwriting recognition. Also an exhibition of 10 industrial and academic systems was organized for the participants to demonstrate their systems and recognition techniques. This format has been designed to encourage the exchange of not only the research ideas and techniques developed. but also the database they have collected for their experiments, and practical results. Consequently the proceedings of this workshop includes both the full papers, plus all the above information. It is hoped that the readers will find this book a valuable source of reference for handwriting recognition.

Sponsors: PCAR Program of the Department of Quebec, Canadian Image Processing and Pattern Recognition Society. Computer Research Institute of Montreal, and the Text Processing Committee of the International Association for Pattern Recognition.
