Once again, the GREC workshops proved to be an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners at all levels of experience to meet and to share new ideas and knowledge about graphics recognition methods. The level of interaction was intense and rich as usual.

This year, 29 participants registered for the workshop, 4 of which, unfortunately encountered visa delays and could not attend. Represented countries were Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Luxemburg, Malaysia, Spain, Switzerland and the USA.

The opening talk was given by Prof. Jean-Marc Ogier, from the Université de La Rochelle, France, GREC 2013 Program Chair and TC-10 chair.

The final panel discussion, chaired by Prof. Josep Llados, from the CVC in Barcelona, is available here.

Full access to presented papers is available from the Program page, but is restricted to attendees only. A selection of fully reviewed papers will be published by Springer as an LNCS volume in 2014.
