With apologies for cross-posting, I forward information about the IMPACT 
Project Outcomes event, to be held at the KB National Library of the 
Netherlands in The Hague on 26 June 2012.

The event should be of interest for all those with an interest in the 
digitisation of textual content and the use of language technologies in 
digitisation.

Kind regards,

IMPACT event: Project Outcomes
Tuesday 26 June 2012, KB National Library of the Netherlands, The Hague

The programme of this event is now available through:

http://www.digitisation.eu/fileadmin/user_upload/IMPACT_Program_26June2012.pdf

At this event, the IMPACT project outcomes will be presented by IMPACT 
staff, along with results of several pilots that have been conducted with 
some of the tools at IMPACT libraries in early 2012.

IMPACT outcomes

The IMPACT project (January 2008 - June 2012) is a European research 
project focused on innovating OCR software and language technology to 
improve the digitisation of historical printed text. IMPACT is led by the 
KB National Library of the Netherlands. Our group of partners includes 
several major European national libraries, universities, research centres 
and two private sector companies (ABBYY and IBM Haifa). IMPACT recently 
launched the IMPACT Centre of Competence, a productive network of experts 
in digitisation that will build on the research and development of 
partners from the IMPACT project and continue to improve access to text.

At the end of the project in June 2012, IMPACT will be presenting the
following results:

* The improved commercial OCR engine ABBYY FineReader 10 (the IMPACT
   FineReader)
* IBM's Adaptive OCR engine with the CONCERT tool for OCR correction
* Computerlexica for 9 European languages and tools for lexicon building
* A digitisation framework for demonstrating and evaluating tools and
   results
* An invaluable dataset which can foster further research activities
* The Functional Extension Parser capable of decoding layout elements of
   books
* A postcorrection tool with text and error profiler
* Novel Approaches to preprocessing and OCR for future development
* The IMPACT Centre of Competence for digitisation

Registration and practical information Attendance of this event is free of 
charge, but we kindly ask you to register in advance through:
