Abstract : This paper presents the results of the ICFHR2016 Competition on the Classification of Medieval Handwritings in Latin Script (CLaMM), jointly organized by Computer Scientists and Humanists (paleographers). This work aims at providing a rich database of European medieval manuscripts to the community on Handwriting Analysis and Recognition. At this competition, we proposed two independent classification tasks which attracted five participants with seven submitted classifiers. Those classifiers are trained on a set 2000 images with their ground truths. In the first task – Script classification – the classifiers have been evaluated by a test set of 1000 single-type manuscripts. In the second task, a ―Fuzzy Classification‖ has been carried out on a set of 2000 multi-script-type manuscripts. The results of the participants provide the first baseline evaluation up to the accuracy score of 83.9% for the task 1 and to the fuzzy weighted score of 2.96/4 for the task 2. An analysis based on the intra-class distance and matrix of confusion of each classifier is also given.
