The competition is run in open mode, meaning that participants are asked to send results, not their executables. At all times we rely on the scientific integrity of the participating researchers to follow the rules of the competition.

 

Please check the instructions on the submission pages regarding the format that your results should be in. The sample MATLAB code available produces compatible result output files, so we strongly encourage to study it and make use of it for producing your results.

 

The deadline for the submission of your results is Monday 8th of April. The announcement of the winner for each task will be made during ICDAR 2013.

 

Please remember that there is no limit in participation, and you are welcome to participate in any of the Challenges and correponding Tasks you want to, with any number of submitted methods.
