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. I will be away on sabbatical in Fall 2014, during which time 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).
In September 2014, I submitted a successful bid to host the 2018 International Conference on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition in Rochester, at RIT (GCCIS Web Page Announcement). If you work in handwriting recognition, we hope to see you here in 2018.
