Historical Document Classification Competition

This competition investigates the performance of historical document classification. The analysis of historical documents is a difficult challenge commonly solved by trained humanists. We provide three different classification tasks, which can be solved individually or jointly: font group, location, date. Additionally, we will declare an overall winner for participants who contributed to all three tasks. The document images are provided by several institutions and different genres (handwritten and printed manuscripts, letters, charters).
