 The 15th International Conference on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition (ICFHR2016) 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 sponsored by the TC-11 (Reading Systems) of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR). It 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. It normally attracts 150 to 200 participants from the academia and the industry.

We look forward to sponsorship from the industry to support the conference financially. There are three levels of sponsorship to ICFHR2016. The conference organizer provides a range of benefits to each sponsor.
