ICDAR 2017 Competition on the Classification of Medieval Handwritings in Latin Script

Abstract : This paper presents the results of the ICDAR2017 Competition on the Classification of Medieval Handwritings in Latin Script (CLaMM), jointly organized by Computer Scientists and Humanists (paleographers). This work follows a competition at ICFHR2016 and aims at providing a rich annotated database of European medieval manuscripts to the community on Handwriting Analysis and Recognition. We proposed four independent classification tasks which attracted 10 registered teams, with 6 submitted classifiers from 4 participants. Those classifiers are trained on a set of 3540 images with their ground truths. In task 1 (Script classification) and task 3 (Date classification), the classifiers have been evaluated by a test set of 2000 greyscale, tiff, 300 dpi images. In task 2 (Script classification) and task 4 (Date classification), the test set consists of 1000 images in different formats, resolutions and color representation. The best scores are respectively 85.2% for task 1, 76.5% for task 2, 59% for task 3, and 49.9% for task 4. An analysis based on the matrix of confusion of each classifier is also given.
