I am a Professor of Computer Science at RIT, specializing in document analysis and information retrieval. I direct the Document and Pattern Recognition Lab (dprl) and am affiliated with the Intelligent Systems Area in the Computer Science Department.
In September 2014, I submitted a successful bid to host the 2018 International Conference on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition in Rochester, at RIT. The bid is available here, and the presentation slides (presented by Umapada Pal at ICFHR 2014 in Crete) are available here. If you work in handwriting recognition, we hope to see you in Rochester in 2018. There's certainly time to get a paper together!
I will be away on sabbatical during Fall 2014, during which I will be a Visiting Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Waterloo (Canada). Earlier in my sabbatical (from mid-June through mid-July 2014) I was a Visiting Professor at the IVC/IRCCyN research lab located in Polytech Nantes (France).
