It is our pleasure to announce that the 15th International Conference on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition (ICFHR-2016) will take place on 23-26, October, 2016 in Shenzhen, China.

The International Conference on Frontiers of Handwriting Recognition (ICFHR), formerly called International Workshop on Frontiers of Handwriting Recognition (IWFHR), is the most important event in the field of handwriting recognition. The aim of this conference is to bring together international experts from academia and industry to share their experiences and to promote research and development in all aspects of handwriting recognition and applications.

The ICFHR provides a forum for researchers in the areas of on-line and off-line handwriting recognition, pen-based interface systems, form processing, handwritten-based digital libraries, and web document access and retrieval.

ICFHR is a major event sponsored by the IAPR Technical Committee TC11 (Reading Systems). The series of the ICFHR conferences is a continuation of the ten IWFHRs (Montreal 1990, Chateau de Bonas 1991, Buffalo 1993, Taipei 1994, Colchester 1996, Taejon 1998, Amsterdam 2000, Niagara on the Lake 2002, Tokyo 2004, La Baule 2006).

Previous ICFHR conferences were held in Montreal 2008, Kolkata 2010, Bari 2012, and Crete 2014.

The 15th ICFHR (ICFHR2016) is proposed to be held in Shenzhen, China, and be co-hosted by the Institute of Automation of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA) and the Shenzhen Graduate School of Tsinghua University.
