IGS 2005

IGS2005 is the 12th Biennial Conference of the International Graphonomics
Society and will take place in Salerno, Italy, June 26-29, 2005. Salerno is
located along the Southern coast of Italy, close to Naples, Amalfi, Capri
island and the volcano Vesuvio.

The Conference theme is "Advances in Graphonomics: Perceiving, Deciding,
Acting", and will be a single track international forum for discussion on
recent advances in the fields of science and technology of handwriting and
other graphic skills.

IGS2005 will bring together the world's leading scientists and
professionals in fine motor control, handwriting, hand, finger, and arm
movements and their applications in computer interaction and processing,
education, forensic science, medicine, and other novel applications.

Topics of interest are:

Handwriting generation:
Biomechanical models; Cognitive models; Neural network based models.
Handwriting recognition:
Human reading; Pen computing; On-line and off-line recognition;
Writer identification and recognition; Signature verification,
Interface technology.
Handwriting education:
Handwriting and drawing skill evaluation; Teaching handwriting;
Learning handwriting.
Handwriting analysis:
Recording; Tracking; Processing; Tools (e.g. personnel screening
devices, etc.).
Development, planning and control of writing and drawing movement.
Medical applications:
Handwriting disorders; Disorders and drugs.
Forensic applications:
Handwriting features; Signature verification; Methods and Computer

The scientific program will include, beside the invited talks, three types
of contributed papers: survey or tutorial, full and on-going research.
Survey or tutorial papers should present the state of the art for any of
the topics listed above, possibly focusing on the role that
interdisciplinary work has played in shaping that specific field.
Full research papers should describe either theoretical or experimental
works that have reached conclusive results.
On-going research papers should describe partial/preliminary results,
successful applications of well-known techniques to specific domains,
original or enhanced algorithms, experimental methodologies.

All accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings. Authors of
selected papers will be invited to submit a full paper based on their
presentation to special issues of Human Movement Science, International
Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence, and Journal of
Forensic Document Examination (editor approval pending).
